An­napo­lis boat shows set to en­gulf City Dock

The Kent Island Bay Times - - Sports -

Tick­ets are avail­able on­line now for the United States Sail­boat and Power­boat shows in An­napo­lis. If you’re lucky enough to have some dis­pos­able in­come, good credit, or both, and you’re look­ing at boats, there’s no bet­ter place on the planet to look them over in one lo­ca­tion.

Both shows en­gulf the An­napo­lis City Dock and en­vi­rons and I don’t see how they could get much big­ger. Just the gear alone is worth the visit. There’s also plenty of food and drink to be had, shops to peruse, and many other things to do in our cap­i­tal city.

The sail­boat show runs Oct. 5-9 and is fol­lowed by the power­boat show Oct. 12-15.

Bro­ker­age Cove, on the other side of Spa Creek Bridge, is a fairly new ad­di­tion to the power­boat show. This year it’s ex­pected to over­flow with more pre­vi­ously owned boats than ever be­fore, all pre­sented by re­gional boat bro­kers. It’s a short walk from the main show, but buses and wa­ter taxis are avail­able be­tween the two sites. The price of ad­mis­sion in­cludes en­try into both the power­boat show and Bro­ker­age Cove.

At the main show, you can also find a Demo Dock where deal­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers will be con­duct­ing demon­stra­tions and sea tri­als. The ex­panded lo­ca­tion will fea­ture new model boats, out­board en­gines, and sta­bi­liz­ing sys­tems de­signed to elim­i­nate boat roll.

Com­plete in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at an­napolis­boat­shows.com.
