The third annual Boatbuilders’ Show on Cape Cod, presented by the Cape Cod Marine Trades Association, is scheduled to return to Hyannis Feb. 13-15.

Last year’s event drew more than 3,000 attendees, which the producers said more than doubled their expectations. This year’s show will feature more than 40 exhibitors and a variety of custom-built sail- and powerboats showcasing “Made in Massachusetts” boatbuilders. The exhibitor list includes Arey’s Pond Boat Yard, Beetle Cat, Cape Cod Shipbuilding, Howard Boats, Hunt Yachts, Marshall Marine and Nauset Marine.

“Smaller builders of custom boats are often lost in the maze of mainstream boat shows,” said Scott Dayton of Hyannis Marina, a key organizer of the show, in a statement. “This is an opportunity for smaller builders to show off their craft in a larger venue, some for the first time outside of their own showrooms.”
