Houston show continues through the weekendPosted on
The 26th annual Houston Summer Boat Show opened Wednesday and runs through Sunday.
The show is displaying nearly every type of recreational vessel — from pontoon and fishing boats to ski/wakeboarding boats and kayaks — and they are increasingly being marketed to serve multiple purposes.
“We’re talking about the recreational fisherman who wants to go out in the morning fishing with friends and then pick up the family for an afternoon of tubing,” Houston Boat Show president Ken Lovell said in a statement. “The boating manufacturers have listened to consumers who want versatility. We are now seeing boats that are tailored to the diverse needs of consumers who want a well-rounded and family-friendly boating experience.”
In addition to the boats, the show has family-friendly activities, including the Bass Tub, where professional angler Chuck Devereaux conducts live fishing demonstrations, Fish-O-Rama, a show tradition and a great way to catch a rainbow trout; Bubble Runners, a giant hamster ball for kids; and the Blue Dolphin Beach Club, a place to meet other boaters and share stories and advice. There will also be RVs on display.
