More Than 570 Boats on Display
In October boaters from across the country gather in the historic seaport of Annapolis to shop from all major powerboat manufacturers, climb aboard more than hundreds of center consoles, and tour brokerage boats. Attendees try before they buy at the Demo Dock and enjoy a drink on the Pussers Painkiller Party Barge. This is the best place to purchase boating supplies, navigation equipment, fishing gear, clothing, and marine accessories. There is something for everyone!
Boat Show tickets available online or at authorized ticketing booths only.
