Annapolis sailboat show matches record attendance

Posted on

Organizers of the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis say this year’s event matched, if not exceeded, last year’s record attendance.

Early estimates show 50,000 people visited the Oct. 9-13 show. About 500 exhibitors were on hand, as well as a dozen or so lenders.

Ed Hartman, CEO of United States Yacht Shows, said it’s evidence the economy will eventually turn toward better times. “We look forward to a bigger and better 40th [annual] Sailboat Show in 2009,” he said.

The U.S. Powerboat Show begins Thursday and runs through Sunday.
