The 22nd annual Maine Boatbuilders Show, scheduled for March 20-22 in Portland, Maine, will feature more than 200 builder exhibitors from the Northeast, Canada and the West Coast.

Displays will include skiffs, canoes, and sail- and powerboats of all sizes built of fiberglass, wood and composite materials. There will also be a variety of related businesses, such as yacht brokers, engine manufacturers, marine-related services, and boatbuilding schools.

“The event brings together boatbuilders and the public in an informal atmosphere,” show sponsor Phin Sprague Jr. said in a statement. “Because there are no dealers at the show, our exhibitors are here talking with people about their designs, boat product lines and new ideas in the industry.”

Other activities will include a lecture series for builders and boat owners, and an auction of marine equipment to benefit the Maine Maritime Academy Alumnae scholarship fund.
