MarineMax Wrightsville Beach will host the only brokerage boat show in North Carolina April 10-12 at the Southport Marina.

“We are really excited about this brokerage show,” MarineMax broker Mike Knoll said in a statement. “There are so many great boats this year, and we have great financing with low rates. Anyone looking for a super deal, this is their best opportunity.”

The MarineMax Brokerage Boat Show is an annual event held at the newly renovated marina at 606 W. West St. in Southport. The show also will offer free boating seminars and entertainment.

“The Southport Marina is a super venue for our brokerage show,” Knoll said. “Since 2006 the facility has gone from a dilapidated mess to one of the finest marinas in North Carolina. I really want to encourage boaters to come on down and enjoy some music and hospitality while looking at some of the wonderful boats that we have available.”
