Boat Shows in the Northeast and Far East

This weekend's boat shows are in Singapore, Connecticut, Maryland and more...

Sometimes boat shows seem to be bunched together geographically, and a quick look at this weekend's calendar is a good example. There are more boat shows in CT and Rhode Island this weekend then there are in the rest of the world combined. But the bigger shows are in places like Singapore (pictured) and Annapolis.

Let's dive in a little deeper. Here is this week's boat show round-up...

This Weekend's Boat Shows
There are plenty of boat shows to choose from if you are looking to attend one this weekend, especially if you live or boat in the Northeast. There are also events in Annapolis and Singapore... We'll highlight a few of the current boat shows below; and, as always, you are welcome to jump ahead to the updated, easier-to-read First Boat boat show calendar. for a quick look at the lineup of boat shows this weekend and beyond.

Boat Show Round-Up...
  • The first Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show began Thursday, brought to you by the same folks who produce the big US Sail and Powerboat shows in the fall. The show goes through Sunday, April 29th, and is located at the Annapolis City Dock and Harbor.
  • Friday (AKA, "today" in Singapore as I write this on Thursday evening in New England) is the first day of the Singapore Yacht Show. The self-proclaimed "luxury lifestyle event of high-end yachting" runs through Sunday the 29th. 
  • New England has several boat shows going on this weekend sprinkled across Connecticut, Mass and Rhode Island.   
On Saturday and Sunday, our partners from BoatNameGear will be exhibiting at the Brewer Spring In-Water Boat Show at Brewers Pilots Point Marina in Westbrook, CT. If you are in Connecticut, please stop by this show.

The Brewer organization is also hosting boat shows at a few other locations, including Essex, CT and Warwick, RI. Warwick is also one of several locations involved in what organizers are calling the Rhode Island Boat Show on Saturday and Sunday, with additional boats on display in Jamestown and Bristol.

If you're closer to Boston than Bristol, you will enjoy the South Shore In-Water Boat Show, Friday through Sunday from 10 to 5 each day in Hingham, MA.

NEXT MONTH
Connecticut is home to SailQuest - a boat show being held in Milford, Connecticut, May 18 to 20, 2012. More info.
