Boat Shows in Boston and Beyond

We'll be in Boston for the New England Boat Show beginning on Saturday as the winter boat show season winds down.

The Spirit of Boston at the last Boston Boat Show
The winter boat show season's last hurrah begins this weekend, with boat shows around the world, the biggest being in Boston, Ottawa and probably Moscow. Reports from other boat shows this year have been encouraging for the economy - just last weekend, Miami reported a significant increase in attendance over last year's boat show. (See our pictures from opening day of last weekend's Miami Boat Show on the FirstBoat page on Facebook.)

Exhibitors are displaying new products this year and offering great deals - a winning combination if you are thinking of buying a boat or boating accessories any time soon.

Be in Boston
Our friends from BoatNameGear.com will be at the New England Boat Show all next week in Boston, beginning this Saturday, at the BCEC. To help make the show a success, BoatNameGear is giving away a $200 gift certificate which you can register for in the show lobby, and they are holding an additional $100 contest at their booth. You can win both. More details about this show are available here.
