The Maine Marine Trades Association is launching a new boat show called Maine's Boating Expo, which will be held April 13-15 in Brunswick Landing.

The show is being launched in response to the membership's need for an effective venue where they can display late-model boat lines and quality used boats to the public. Boaters will be able to get the best pricing available immediately before the 2012 season starts.

“Maine's Boating Expo has generated an amazing response from the maritime community,” Maine Marine Trades Association executive director Susan Swanton said in a statement. “This show will be a win-win situation for Mainers looking for a good deal to get on the water, as well as the businesses that need to reduce their inventory.”

Show organizers are making the show as accessible as possible to Maine's broad boating community. The mid-coast location of the expo is expected to draw boaters from both the coastal and the lakes regions.

More than half of the exhibit space has been sold. Marine industry vendors who are interested in showcasing their boat lines or maritime wares should contact Swanton at (207) 773-8725.
