Annapolis sail show adds used-boat showcase

New this year, the 45-year-old Annapolis sailboat show will expand its already large selection of new and premiering sailboats to include used sailboats in a floating marina in St. Mary's Cove.

The United States Sailboat Show, which runs Oct. 9-13, will feature Brokerage Cove, a show within a show, with used boats presented by regional boat brokers and available for immediate sale.

The new venue is inside the Spa Creek Bridge and is one block from the main show. Organizers said Brokerage Cove is an easy walk from the hundreds of new and premiering boats on display in downtown Annapolis.

Buses, land shuttles and water taxis will ferry attendees between the two venues and from parking lots to ticket booths.Water taxis will run continuously between the Annapolis City Dock and St. Mary's Cove.
