Where to Stay


The word on the waterfront was that this show was different, and it sure was... the exhibits were real boats, and the parts for real boats. and service for real people, and the folks in attendance were real boat enthusiasts.

Peter Spectre, Wooden Boat Magazine

It is more than a boatshow. It is a gathering of builders and customers. You could spend time with colleagues or customers. We all learn something.
