Every week we tell you about all the weekend's boat shows and nautical events so that if you can't get out on the water, at least you can still be around boats. This weekend's shows are big and international, and can be found on the east coast of the United States, as well as in Europe and South America.

Feel free to jump right to our calendar of boat shows at FirstBoat, or continue reading to see where the boat shows are happening this weekend at the Daily Boater...
