United States Yacht Shows added a new Outdoor Living component to the Bay Bridge Boat Show, scheduled for April 23-26 at Stevensville on Kent Island, Md.

This “show within the show” will feature cartop boats to introduce non-boaters to entry level, affordable and green boating.

“The section will feature not only kayaks, canoes, small daysailers and inflatables, but accessories including clothing, safety equipment, camping gear, car racks, etc,” director of marketing Bonnie Seidelmann said in a statement.

The Outdoor Living section will include seminars to answer questions about when, where, why and how to get into boating. After each session, a guide will accompany attendees to the outdoor section.
