Virtual Boat Show Launches Today

VBS


At Trade Only Today, we’re tasked with covering the many segments of the boating industry — the innovations, brands, new products and trends, the wins and losses, as well as the people who comprise the industry, from dealers to designers to builders and more.

Like the rest of you, we have been following strict social distancing guidelines and closely following — but also reporting — the daily headlines, much of which is focused on the covid-19 pandemic.

With spring and summer boat shows canceled and nearly all travel postponed for the foreseeable future, it’s more important than ever to get away from it all. With that in mind, Active Interest Media’s Marine Group has launched a Virtual Boat Show.

Marine Group staff from Anglers Journal, Outboard, PassageMaker, Power & Motoryacht, Sail, Soundings, Soundings Trade Only and Yachts International have contributed reviews of newboats and products, exclusive conversations with builders and designers, and a look at what’savailable on the brokerage market. New content will be added regularly, so check back often.

Our hope is that the Virtual Boat Show is the next best thing to walking the docks, but from the comfort of your home.
