New Boat Show in Essex This Weekend

Brewer Essex Island Marina is home to the CT Spring Boat Show

Brewer Essex Island Marina is home to the CT Spring Boat Show May 13-15, 2016

New England has a brand new boat show, as two established spring boat shows in Connecticut have pooled their resources – and their vendors – into a single larger show. SailQuest Boat Show (held in both Mystic and Milford over the past several years) and the Essex Spring Boat Show have combined to create one bigger and better boat show featuring both new and used sail and power boats, and a tent full of accessory and service vendors.

The result is the first ever Connecticut Spring Boat Show is happening THIS WEEKEND, May 13-15, 2016 at Brewer Essex Island Marina located in Essex, CT.

The in-water show will display over 70 boats varying in size from 20-75ft, and includes FREE ADMISSION and FREE PARKING.
