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 (1019 Q Avenue) Thursday April 6 through Sunday April 9.
What began with just five yacht brokerages displaying 30 to 40 small to medium size boats has grown into a regional event with 15 yacht brokerages showing over 100 power and sailboats ranging from trailerable sport and fishing boats to large sail and power yachts capable of cruising the world.
Entrance to the show and parking are free, and the Uplands tent adjacent to the marina houses displays from over 30 marine vendors showing the latest equipment and presenting information on their services. Cruising and expedition educational seminars will be ongoing throughout the weekend.
Throughout the years, Anacortes 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 land. The city also supports five year round boatyards with haul-out facilities capable of lifting yachts up to 400,000 pounds. And with over 40 marine businesses in Anacortes providing everything from anchors to zincs, boat sales to insurance, boating schools to bareboat charters, canvas to electronics, and every service know to the marine trades, it’s a maritime hub that can 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. Come join fellow boaters on April 6-9 to browse sailboats, powerboats, trawlers, motor yachts and all the parts and services to make your boating experience exceptional.
