New boat show announced in Pacific Northwest

Publish date:

The Northwest Marine Trade Association and the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce have come together to launch a new boat show — the Anacortes Boat and Yacht Show, which is slated for May 17-20 at the Port of Anacortes’ Cap Sante Marina.

The show is projected to have nearly 300 boats on display in the popular boating area.

“Teaming with the producers of the Seattle Boat Show to bring their expertise to our beautiful waterfront community and the gem of all marinas — Cap Sante Marina — is yet another way to offer our guests an opportunity to experience Anacortes – our island getaway,” said Anacortes Chamber of Commerce president Stephanie Hamilton in a statement.

Boats for sale include new and brokerage vessels in the water at the marina, as well as at nearby boatyards — free shuttles will take attendees to Banana Belt Boats and North Harbor Diesel.

The marina parking area will feature a large display of boats on trailers, and a large shoreside tent filled with accessories and electronics.

Located between Seattle and Vancouver B.C., the Anacortes area has more than 40 marine-related businesses.


New boat sales relatively flat in June

New boat sales in June grew marginally, with a 1.1 percent rise in the main powerboat categories and just 0.2 percent growth overall, according to preliminary data from Statistical Surveys Inc., a Michigan firm that tracks registrations.
