The Boat Shows Are Back!

Having launched the first in-water boat show with the debut of the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis in 1970, the Annapolis Boat Shows remains one of the world's leading producers of the type of boat show founded 37 years ago.

While producing hundreds of events in the nation's most active boating markets over many years, the Annapolis Boat Shows has established an unsurpassed reputation for presenting the most comprehensive showcase of the latest and the best the boating industry has to offer.

Each show is truly unique. The United States Sailboat Show is the world's largest show featuring exclusively new sailboats-all new and all sail. The US Powerboat Show is devoted to powerboats, all new and all power. The Bay Bridge Boat Show is the Mid-Atlantic's largest spring boat show for both new and premium brokerage boats.

Each show affords boaters the unique opportunity to board and inspect virtually every new model on the market, make side by side comparisons on site and talk to industry representatives on all aspects of buying and owning a boat. Dealers are highly motivated to put you in the boat of your dreams at the best possible price. And don't miss special show features like seminars or the chance to shop the vast array of boating products and services on display, from financing and insurance to electronics and foul weather gear.
