Don't miss the in-water demos in Ego Alley at City Dock.

New this year the sailboats will make room for an exciting demo area in Ego Alley for small sailboats, kayaks, inflatables and model boats. Attendees will try before they buy a range of small in-water products provided by exhibitors.


Topaz Sailboats will DEMO the Taz, Argo, Uno and Omega

Topaz Sailboats offer the perfect combination of stability, durability, performance, and simplicity for a new generation of sailors. With its unrivaled trilaminate Metalicine TRILAM hull construction, these boats benefit from the very latest thinking in hydrodynamic hull and rig technology. Topaz Sailboats are ideal for teaching, racing, and recreational sailing.


Hobie Mirage Eclipse by Backyard Boats takes standup to a whole new level. 

Stand tall on the water aboard the Eclipse, another world’s-first watercraft from Hobie. Incredibly stable, just get on and go using MirageDrive® leg power.

Soon you’ll fly high at exceptional speed, nimbly carving turns using fingertip steering controls. There’s minimal setup. Go from the car, the dock or your boat to the water in minutes. Cruise solo, with your partner or with a group. The Mirage Eclipse takes fitness out of the gym and onto the water and under the sun. The board is lightweight and durable and full of thoughtful features such as gear tie-downs and a carefree kick-up rudder.


Stop by and meet the members of the Maryland Model Yacht Club and take advantage of an opportunity to try your skills at the helm of a high-tech model yacht, in this rapidly growing sport. The "J" class will also be there on display. See examples of this beautiful model yacht, the largest of the sanctioned sailing models built to a scale of 1/16 of the original "juggernauts" that graced the America's cup at the turn of the century.

Learn how you can get into the sport whether you live on the East Coast or across the USA. Whether you want to race or just enjoy an afternoon sail. Information will a be available from the American Model Yachting Association on how to find & join your local club


EZ Dock is the right dock for every application. The EZ Dock system is as varied and versatile as the waterways to which it provides access. 

EZ Dock now provides a stable and durable system for boarding and exiting kayaks. Designed to be especially valuable for seniors or anyone that could benefit in assistance for launching or recovering from kayak or canoe activities the system provides a dry and safe platform.

The EZ Launch™ – Kayak and Canoe system is modular and can be configured to match any dock configuration you require. Since it is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, the dock can remain in the water year round since ice has no affect on the dock structure, it simply “pops” to the top as an ice cube tray since it only requires 1.5” of water to float.

Dragonfly offers guided paddleboard tours, paddleboard yoga and fitness classes as well as board rentals and sales.


Staff from Fawcett Boat Supplies will help you answer the question: Why choose APEX for your Inflatable Boat?

APEX experience, and commitment to provide all customers with superb quality, is reflected in the superior design of their boats. Many features are designed to make your life easier; like the non-marking, light gray raised rubrail, which doesn't leave those annoying streaks and marks on larger craft. However, the most noticeable feature is the difference in shape between our inflatable and the average. The tubes of APEX inflatables are designed with rounded ends, rather than the more usual long cones. 


Annapolis Inflatibles will demo the Highfield Classic 310 with a Torqeedo electric motor. The extra level of comfort for this double deck hulled dinghy that will keep your feet dry. The high quality finish and luxury look belies the fact that this range of tenders has been designed to work hard. A durable aluminium hull coupled with full length keel guards make these ideal for those beach-hopping days with friends and family. Includes a bow locker for valuables.
