2013 United States Powerboat Show Adds Second Premier Event: The First Annual Annapolis Brokerage Show

World's Oldest In-Water Powerboat Show Runs October 3rd-6th, 2013
Annapolis, Maryland (August 20, 2013) – 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 U.S. 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 U.S. Powerboat Show will maintain its venerable tradition of showcasing more than 350 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.
Marking one of the most significant events in boating, the U.S. Powerboat Show features luxurious motor yachts and trawlers, high-performance boats, offshore fishing machines, family cruisers, center consoles, and inflatables.
In addition hundreds of land exhibitors will display a wide selection of marine equipment, high-tech electronics, accessories, gear and related services such as boating lessons, rentals, insurance firms and lending institutions. 
Take the Wheel Workshops are interactive workshops for novice boaters coupled with on-boat demonstrations and boat rides.
"Most major boat manufacturers not only participate, they bring their entire lines," said Paul Jacobs, general manager of the Annapolis Boat Shows.
"In fact, many companies choose these shows as the venue in which to premier their newest models. The powerboat show offers hundreds of boats, from 8 to 80 feet in length, including an extensive Trawler section and an entire dock devoted to center-console fishing boats of all descriptions; the most ever here in Annapolis this fall," Jacobs added.
In 2013 Annapolis Boat Shows launched a mobile app for smart phone users to purchase tickets and explore show offerings. To download the app or for more information, including premiering boats, accommodations, parking, tickets and more call 410-268-8828.
