World's Oldest and Largest In-Water Powerboat
and Sailboat Shows Begin October 3, 2013
Annapolis, Maryland (August 15, 2013) ---- Beginning October 3, 2013 the Annapolis Boat Shows are expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors to its historic and charming seaport and provide a $50 million dollar boost to the local economy.
Produced annually on consecutive weekends by U.S. Yacht Shows, Inc., these great shows host more than 250 sailboats, over 300 powerboats and hundreds of land exhibitors and mark two of the most significant events in the boating industry's year.
This year, the oldest in-water powerboat show will open the first weekend in October followed immediately by the oldest and largest sailboat show to take place over Columbus Day weekend.
Beginning with a VIP Preview Day on October 3, 2013, the 42nd Annual United States Powerboat Show will herald the arrival of a new Annapolis tradition: the 1st Annual Annapolis Brokerage Show. The two shows will be held concurrently in convenient venues with buses, e-cruisers and water taxis ferrying attendees between the two events. One price of admission will provide entry into both the US Powerboat Show and the Annapolis Brokerage Show.
The first of its kind, the Annapolis Brokerage Show will promote the sale of previously owned boats of all kinds. The large selection of boats presented by area brokers will be on display in St. Mary's Cove just inside the bridge on Spa Creek and be available to the public for immediate sale.
The US Powerboat Show will maintain its venerable tradition of show casing hundreds of new boats from major manufacturers around the world at the Annapolis City Dock in the beautiful Annapolis Harbor. 2014 designs and models will debut in the boating market at this year's show that runs
October 3 - 6, 2013.
