As many in the boating industry would say, the best way to experience your next boat is in-person and on the water. Experience the newest and most exciting sailboats from major manufacturers as they pack Ego Alley during the largest and most prestigious in-water sailboat show. From monohulls to multihulls, top exhibitors like BENETEAU and Fountaine Pajot invite sailors to board and inspect their latest models on the market, make side-by-side comparisons, and talk directly to their industry representatives. Tents stocked with the latest in nautical gear and accessories, financial institutions and charter companies providing investment advice and affordable vacation options, and several educational and training programs for boating enthusiasts of all levels make this a must-attend event.
Boasting a strong maritime history, nautical culture, and fun atmosphere that the Boat Shows love to call home, the brick-lined streets of Maryland’s capital provide even more fun and entertainment for all. When guests have finished exploring the floating docks and shoreside exhibit areas at the Show, downtown restaurants, shops, galleries, and special events open their doors to sailing patrons looking to extend their stay.
See a live show at one of the many music venues, do some retail therapy, book a historic walking tour, or stroll through the U.S. Naval Academy. Visit Annapolis & Anne Arundel County (VAAAC) has a running list of the many events and entertainment options happening all weekend. You can even extend your stay by making it an overnight trip with accommodations at a waterfront hotel, quaint bed and breakfast, or full-service luxury hotel.
