SailQuest Boat Show Cos. said it will hold its annual boutique boat show May 1-3 at Mystic Shipyard in Mystic, Conn.

The family-oriented show will feature new sailboats, trawlers, Down East-style powerboats, kayaks, paddle boards and select brokerage yachts from 12 to more than 50 feet.

Mystic Shipyard is offering free parking and free admission to the show. Exhibitor space is available on and off the water.

The show, in its eighth year, caters to serious buyers, and many land activities will be held to support Sails Up 4 Cancer, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research in the education, prevention and cure of all types of cancer through the art and enjoyment of sailing.

“Springline Yacht Sales enjoyed yet another successful SailQuest Boat Show in 2014,” Springline president Rick Dieterich said in a statement. “Over the years, we can directly attribute sales to this show, and this past year was no exception. Having a boutique-type show that focuses on vessel sales and not the gate or ticket sales is what makes this show such a welcomed addition to our schedule. With super-low cost to the dealers and superb seasonal timing, you can’t go wrong,”
