Portland Is Ready For You

Boston may be the place to be this weekend for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, but there is only one place to see the biggest gathering of custom and semi-custom boats in the Northeast – and that’s the Maine Boatbuilders Show in Portland.

The scene at the more than 160 year old Portland Company Complex is getting busy with boats arriving all week, and the show set-up well underway. If you’re wondering what that looks like, the event organizers put up a time-lapse video showing the transformation of the location from a cavernous, empty space to a crowded end-of-winter boat show.

If you saw the mention of the Flower show at the beginning of the video and got excited… first of all, sorry, you’re on the wrong website. Second, sorry again, but you missed it – the flower show was last week. As for the BOAT show, visit our Northeast events calendar for show times and a link to the official show website.
