  • "Palm Beach is one of the nicest boat show venues on the east coast. Great downtown setting, docks are well laid out and logical to traverse. Nice mix of new and vessels with a wide representation of manufacturers. Lots of positive reports as far as sales by both brokers and new boat dealers. Weather was great for the show also."

  • "We saw a great turnout this year at the Bay Bridge Boat Show. Growing crowds suggest there is a resurgence of boating as the go-to family activity in the Chesapeake Bay area. This is a nice, family-friendly boat show, which allows us to remember why many of us began boating!"

  • "The turnout at this year’s Baltimore Boat Show was amazing! The NMMA expanded the show by 30,000 square feet which made a big difference. There was a wide representation of new boats and local dealers. If this show was any representation of the 2020 Boat Sales season, then we are in for a GREAT year."
