Organizers of the Bay Bridge Boat Show, scheduled to run from Friday through Sunday on Kent Island in Stevensville, Md., say it will be the biggest installation of the show in years, featuring more than 350 boats, 100 on-land exhibitors and an 80 percent increase in online ticket sales.

Powerboat manufacturers will be exhibiting and visitors will be able to shop and compare more than 100 fishing boats from 35 manufacturers.

“If you are already dreaming of summer, escaping with your family cruising and fishing on the Chesapeake, then the Bay Bridge Boat Show is designed just for you,” Annapolis Boat Shows president and general manager Paul Jacobs said in a statement.

Dealers will offer demo rides and sea trials from docks inside the show.

Exhibitors will feature pontoons, center consoles, bowriders, jetboats and catamaran deckboats at the PropTalk Demo Dock.

Attendees will explore more than 100 on-land exhibits and browse the latest in navigational equipment, electronics, inflatables, boating accessories, clothing, gear and related services, such as boating clubs, charter companies, insurance firms and lending institutions.

“You can’t help but be impressed at the breadth and depth of the offerings, both in the water and on land,” Jacobs said. “Most local dealers and brokers of quality boats have increased their level of participation in this show. New boat lines are being introduced to the Mid-Atlantic, innovative technologies will be unveiled and boating services of all kinds will be available.”

Organizers said industry experts will offer six free seminars daily, including a hands-on docking class. Fishing, casting and rod-building lessons will be available throughout the weekend.

ESPN Radio will broadcast live at the show on Friday from 1-4 p.m.

    Yes, it was a great show. The Organizers of the Bay Bridge Boat Show had done the exact thing what a boat show should contain and it looked great for the tourists and the spectators who had been to this great show. I was there and enjoyed a lot the boat show. My family and friends had booked a yacht from Med Waves Charters and visited the Kent Island. We all are quite impressed by the crews onboard for providing much information about this show and also the letting us know the purpose of this show. I am excited for exploring upcoming shows this year.
