The Connecticut Spring Boat Show will return for a second year during the weekend of May 5-7 at Brewer Essex Island Marina.

Boats from 20 to 75 feet will be in Essex to attract buyers from Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island and beyond. Organizers said more than 2,000 people attended the inaugural show last year.

“The CT Spring Boat Show has everything that a prospective boat buyer wants. New and pre-owned sail and powerboats, all in one beautiful location,” Latitude Yacht broker Matt Leduc said in a statement.

“Local vendors, suppliers and seasoned marine professionals are most notable at the boat show. Boat shows are more about people than boats. We are a service industry, first and foremost. People who come to the show will be able to see the boats at the show, but the years of experience and boating knowledge of the exhibitors is far and away the best product at this show.”

Brewer Essex Island Marina is on a 13-acre private Island, accompanied by a complementary ferry service, and it offers 125 slips accommodating vessels as large as 200 feet.

Sails Up 4 Cancer, a Connecticut-based non-profit, will be on site raising money through food and beverage sales to benefit their organization.

The show is a production of Windcheck Magazine and is sponsored by Brewer Essex Island Marina, Essex Boat Works and the Yacht Brokers Association of America.
