Greenwich Boat Show Returns This Weekend

It’s hard to believe it’s time for the Greenwich Boat Show already this year. I think Greenwich hosts the Northeast’s first in-water boat show of the year, certainly the first in Connecticut. This means the weather won’t necessarily be perfect, but it will be a great chance to walk the docks and check out more than 100 boats. Can you think of a better way to get ready for boating season?

Here’s the official press release with details about the show…

Now entering the ninth year since it was first imagined, the Greenwich Boat Show continues to be a favorite among Northeast boaters. For good reason, there’s absolutely no other boat show like it.

This boutique in-water show has built its reputation by offering a diverse selection of new power boats and yachts, with unparalleled access via sea-trials to let boaters feel how these boats ride on the open water. Greenwich Boat Show will continue to offer free admission and exciting pre-show raffles.

The 2017 Greenwich Boat Show will be held April 8 and 9, from 10am to 4pm, on the Mianus River in Cos Cob, Connecticut. It’s the only boat show that offers free sea-trials and free admission. Boaters have access to test drive multiple new boats on Long Island Sound, and compare how they handle. This year’s show will offer 19 of the best dealers in the region, representing 43 different brands, showing over 100 new boats.

Boaters in the market for high-end, luxury vessels can test such brands as Monte Carlo Yachts, Chris Craft, Tiara, Back Cove, Sabre, Southport Boats, MJM, and True North. They’ll also be able to try Hunt Yachts, Vanquish, and Galeon and Gran Turismo by Beneteau.

Anglers hoping to reel in a great fishing boat will have plenty to consider. They can test sport fishing vessels like Everglades, Scout, Grady White, Pursuit, Century, Rossiter, Boston Whaler, and Regulator. Try great fishing boats from Release, EdgeWater, Sea Fox, Sea Hunt, World Cat, Seaway and Robalo. For a special experience, step aboard American or Ranger Tug.

Families looking for that perfect cruising vessel will enjoy such brands as Sea Ray, Monterey, Carolina Cat, Chaparral, Regal, and Bennington pontoons. For the truly unique buyer, step aboard a custom wooden boat by Rockport Marine.

As a surf and turf spectacular, Lamborghini returns with two of their newest models. Also replaying this year, enter to win two great raffles prior to the show. Winners receive either a Garmin handheld GPS or an overnight stay at the Cos Cob Inn to make it a “Boat Show Weekend” with access to the exclusive VIP party. This year’s sunset party will be held on Saturday, April 8, and will include a fashion show by Laura McKittrick, Greenwich Girl. Models will show the season’s nautical fashions from Landfall and Lord & Taylor.
