United States Sailboat Show Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Published: Tuesday, December 11, 2018

The Annapolis Boat Shows, Inc. is excited to announce their 2019 schedule, including four in-water sail and power boat shows taking place in Annapolis and the surrounding region. Along with producing boat shows, the Annapolis Boat Shows, Inc. also coordinates several educational and training programs for boating enthusiasts of all types and skill levels.

“We are truly excited to announce that 2019 will be the 50th anniversary of the United States Sailboat Show in historic downtown Annapolis. In 1970 the world's first in-water sailboat show opened with a handful of sailboats on display in Ego Alley" said Paul Jacobs, President of the Annapolis Boat Shows. "It’s unlikely that the sailors who designed that first show could imagine the significance and size of today's show."

"It is not an exaggeration to say that the United States Sailboat Show is the world's greatest gathering of its kind providing sailors an opportunity for networking, socializing, exploring and buying. We have lots of exciting things planned for the 50th anniversary and encourage visitors to plan their visit early," said Jacobs. Below are the dates and descriptions of the upcoming shows and educational programs.

2019 Spring Boat Shows

The Bay Bridge Boat Show will take place April 12th through the 14th of 2019 featuring more than 400 powerboats up to 75 feet in length. This show is made up of an impressive collection of fishing boats, center consoles, trawlers, express cruisers, pontoon boats, luxury cruisers, jet boats, ski boats and bowriders. A wide array of on-land exhibitors will have boating gear and equipment of all kinds on display, and for a more personalized experience, a VIP Red Carpet Lounge will also be available. If you are new to boating, be sure to check out the on-water training classes provided by the BoatUS Foundation. This annual springtime event is held in Stevensville, MD at the Bay Bridge Marina and is one of the largest spring boat shows north of Florida.

The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show takes place in beautiful downtown Annapolis April 26th through the 28th of 2019.

Modern Boating team liked most of all about the Bayliner 305 was just how well it uses what space it did have. For a boat its size, the Bayliner 305 has a remarkable amount of living room. Nothing is cramped, not the head and shower, not the bow berth, not the dinette, nor the galley. The layout follows an established formula of upstairs dinette, downstairs saloon/galley, bow berth, head and shower to port as you go downstairs and a supplementary berth aft below the stairs, or more geographically correctly, below the helm.
