Brewer Yacht Sales and the Brewer Yacht Yards said they will hold their fifth annual Brewer Spring In-Water Used Boat Show at Brewer Pilots Point Marina in Westbrook, Conn., on April 30 and May 1.

Organizers said the show is New England’s largest in-water used boat show and will have more than 55 powerboats and sailboats from 20 to 62 feet. It will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days. Admission and parking are free.

“The Brewer Spring In-Water Used Boat Show is unique and the only show of its kind,” Brewer Yacht Sales office manager and show coordinator Jackie Joslyn said in a statement.

“There’s no charge for dockage at the show as long as the boat is centrally listed with Brewer Yacht Sales and our sellers remain aboard to showcase and answer questions. Contract negotiations are conducted by Brewer brokers, and a sea trial is only after there’s been an agreed price and terms.”

“Last year we had a gate count of over 1,300 and sold 15 boats at the show or as a result of the show — our sellers were extremely happy at the turnout,” said David Pugsley, general manager of Brewer Yacht Sales. “In fact, Brewer Yacht Sales has moved this year’s show to Pilots Point South Yard to accommodate show-goers and participants.”
