Boat show beckons sailing enthusiasts

April 17, 1994|By From Staff Reports

More than 200 new and used sailboats and powerboats will be on display at the fourth annual Annapolis Spring Boat Show at the Annapolis Yacht Basin and Harbor this week.

The show will run from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. It is the only spring, in-water boat show in the Chesapeake Bay area to feature new and used boats. Organizers are expecting 12,000 people.

"This is everything wrapped into one," said Jeff Holland, spokesman for Annapolis Boat Shows, which coordinates the event.

The spring show is smaller than the fall boat shows and focuses on the local boating industry.

"The whole point of this event is to provide a regional marketplace for the local dealer and broker," Mr. Holland said.

Boats will be on display on both water and land. Those in the water will range from an 18-foot Ideal day sailer to cruising yachts and fishing boats. On land will be new small boats, including rowing shells, yacht tenders, sailing dinghies and inflatables.

Exhibit tents will feature nautical equipment, accessories and services ranging from boat loans to deck shoes.

Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under.
