The Progressive North American Boat Show, which organizers say is the Great Lakes’ biggest floating showcase of powerboats and sailboats, will be held Aug. 24-27 at Cedar Point Marina in Sandusky, Ohio.
The show will mark its 45th anniversary this year.
Organizers said more than 12,000 boaters from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania annually attend the show, which is produced by the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association.
“As we see it,” show manager Bryan Ralston said in a statement, “this show has always had great drawing cards, like the first showing of many new models in all size ranges; very attractive end-of-season pricing by dealers on non-currents; freedom for visitors to climb aboard more than 300 power and sailboats — all at one of America’s top-rated amusement parks. It’s such a unique venue.”
Daily musical entertainment on the Rockin’ Party Barge, hands-on activities and special seminars will highlight this year’s event.
The powerboats and sailboats on display will range from personal watercraft to motoryachts larger than 60 feet, along with a variety of accessory exhibits dockside.
