The Lake Erie Marine Trades Association has announced a new in-water boat show at North Coast Harbor in downtown Cleveland in September.

Officially named the North Coast Harbor Boat Show, LEMTA’s newest event will be held Sept. 15-17 adjacent to Cleveland’s iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The show will take over all of the popular transient docks, dubbed the Rock & Dock Marina, that boaters flock to each year to visit downtown Cleveland.

The region hosts major sports events at adjacent FirstEnergy Stadium, home of the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, and nearby Progressive Field, where the Cleveland Indians major-league baseball team plays.

“It’s an opportunity for our members to showcase their boats in an exceptional location right in the heart of a major city,” LEMTA president Bryan Ralston said in a statement. “The atmosphere in this harbor is one of energy and activity, not just because the Rock Hall is there, but it’s also surrounded by the Great Lakes Science Center, the floating Steamship William G. Mather Museum, the Nuevo Restaurant and more.”

Ralston said about 100 boats from about 20 feet to 56 feet will be displayed in the water. The marina’s configuration allows access for dealers that want to provide sea trials and demonstrations.
