Anyone who has ever visited, read about, or heard about our hometown of Annapolis probably already knows that we are considered the Sailing Capital of the United States, but that doesn’t mean we rule out other forms of water transportation. Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States, making it perfect for boats of all types, including powerboats, which is why one of the largest powerboat shows in the country takes place every October. This year United States Powerboat Show is being held October 3rd through 6th; isn’t it time to start planning your Annapolis visit now?
City Dock in Annapolis is Where You Need to Be
There’s so much going on in this wonderful show, we really don’t know where to start. Offering everything from on-water training to previews and discounts of the hundreds of boats being exhibited, to a VIP Red Carpet Lounge where the cuisine is haute and the beverages run freely, this gigantic exposition is everything a boat lover could dream of! Preview Day takes place on Thursday, October 3 from 10 AM until 6PM and offers serious boat buyers a chance to explore the acres of boats being displayed in advance, as well as offering discounts on the purchase prices. There’s a demo dock for buyers to “test drive” the vessel they are considering, on-water training courses to help the new boat owner learn the rules of the water, and prizes that include a 7 Day Caribbean Charter Vacation for the lucky online ticket purchaser whose ticket is chosen!
Featuring hundreds of boats on display, including fishing boats from over 50 of the world’s leading manufacturers and pre-owned boats that can be found in Brokerage Cove, acres of on-land exhibitors, and comprehensive courses on ins and outs of boat ownership with Cruiser’s University, the chances of you seeing everything you want to see are slim, but because this is an annual event, we invite you to come back again next year! Ticket prices start at $5 for children and $18 for adults for a single day at the show and go up from there, making it an inexpensive activity for those traveling on a budget!
