The 20th Anniversary Anacortes Boat Show, sponsored by The Anacortes Yacht Brokers, Anacortes Marine Trade Association, Port of Anacortes, and SaviBank, will take place at the Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes, Thursday, April 6 through Sunday, April 9, 2017.
Anacortes Boat Show began 20 years ago with five brokerage offices displaying 30 to 40 small to medium-sized boats. Today, the show has grown into a regional event, where 15 yacht brokerage offices will display over 100 power and sailboats ranging from trailerable sport and fishing boats to large sail and power yachts capable of cruising the world. The Anacortes Boat Show is free and has plenty of free parking.
The Uplands tent adjacent to the marina houses displays from more than 30 marine vendors showing the latest equipment and presenting information on their services. Cruising and expedition educational seminars will be ongoing throughout the weekend.
Anacortes may be considered a small town by some people; however, it has grown into a major West Coast boating center with approximately 2,500 boats moored in five marinas plus another 1,000 boats stored on dry land. Anacortes supports five year-around boat yards with haul-out facilities capable of lifting yachts up to 400,000 pounds.
Anacortes has more than 40 marine businesses providing everything from anchors to zincs, boat sales to insurance, boating schools to bareboat charters, canvas to electronics, and every service known to the marine trades. One town shopping will satisfy every boater’s needs!
With 2016 being an exceptionally successful year for the Anacortes Yacht Brokers and Marine Trades, 2017 promises to be an exciting year for boaters to upgrade to a larger boat, or buy their first boat. Join us April 6-9 to take in the display of sailboats, powerboats, trawlers, motoryachts, and all the parts and services to make your boating experience exceptional. Visit anacortesboatshow.com.
