It’s far from the largest boat show, but it does offer insight into today’s buyer.

The sixth annual Greenwich In-Water Boat Show was held during the weekend along Connecticut’s Gold Coast, drawing hundreds of people to see more than 80 boats displayed by a handful of local dealers.

Organizers call it “a show for serious buyers,” and sea trials are common. The show featured powerboats ranging from 22 to 52 feet — a mix of fishing, luxury, power, sport and cruising boats.
