The Annapolis Sailboat Show 2014 is scheduled to take place from April 25 through to the 27th and will see sailboat enthusiasts everywhere come together for a grand celebration of the end of the long winter and the beginning of another prosperous and magical sailing year.

The three day, Cruising World sponsored show has a jam packed events schedule with something for everyone and all the family, with no end of entertainment and activities to get involved in. The main show will feature over 80 sailboats, some new, others old, with many different varieties on display, including catamarans, racing boats and mono hulls, making it a great place to check out the latest models and also get a glimpse at some more rare vintage ones too.

As well as the usual boat displays, Annapolis Sailboat Show 2014 also boasts some very special debuts, such as the Farr 280 One Design, a brand new, 30 ft grand prix-racing sailboat and the 2014 Gemini Legacy 35, the latest Legacy Catamaran. Bavaria Yachts have also chosen the Annapolis Sailboat Show for the North American première of their spectacular new boat, Bavaria Cruiser 33, which promises to be a real treat for visitors.

Once you’ve enjoyed the sights at the main event, there is plenty to keep you busy. Head to one of the many stalls and exhibits displaying and selling the latest sailboat gear, electronics, clothing and accessories, where you can pick up some goodies or simply test things out and ask top experts for advice or recommendations. Other highlights of the show include the chance to take tours of many of the sailboats on display, competitions and prizes, exercise and fitness demonstrations and classes, and, last but not least, an exciting networking party on the Friday, presenting the perfect opportunity to meet fellow sailing fans and network with professionals. Photo ops are endless, so don’t forget your camera.

United States Sailboat Show, Annapolis, Maryland

The 43nd Annapolis Sailboat Show runs from Thursday October 4th to Monday October 8th 2012.

On first hearing about this sailboat show I thought it was a little one and couldn’t find any figures for size and visitor numbers.  Together with the Powerboat show which runs from Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th October they will have visitors of around 100,000, not bad for a “little one”.

According to the literature there is the usual boat show fare.  Premiering boats, new gadgets, marine merchandise, free seminars and interactive boating classes.  Those serious about buying can attend on the Thursdays, VIP day for each show.
