More now than ever boating is just a part of a much bigger lifestyle that includes all aspects of water-sports… pleasure boating, skiing, fishing, real estate, docks, boat lifts, swimwear… It’s all a part of the Boating Lifestyle and it’s all available to you and your family under one roof for 4 days.

Mercury Customer Appreciation Event

No one stands behind their products in the marine industry like Mercury Marine. To show their appreciation for making them one of the best in the business, Mercury will be providing free hats for the first 200 ticket purchasers (adult, senior or child) on Saturday morning Feb 10th. Be sure to stop by the Mercury Marine Display to check out the 2018 product line.  Factory Representatives will be on hand to answer all your questions.

Family Boats for Every Lifestyle and Every Budget.

For many, boating begins with the family sport boat. Bow-riders & deck-boats ranging from 16 to 32 feet is the perfect way to introduce the family to water-sports. You’ll find the best selection of family run-a-bouts at this year’s show. With so many models and floor plans to choose from, the Mid-Atlantic Boat Show is the perfect place to compare & shop.

Miss Geico Racing Team

With 8 world titles and victories in more than 100 individual races the Miss Geico “Super Boat” has become a “Super Fan” Favorite. The Mid-Atlantic Boat Show is thrilled to be a part of the promotional tour that this awesome machine and crew is making this year. Stop by the display and meet the men behind the scenes and… while your there…. Ask how Geico can be a one stop shop for all your families insurance needs. The Miss Geico will be on display all 4 days.

It’s a Pontoon World and We’re Living In It!

Sun and relaxation takes on a whole new meaning when it takes place on a luxurious pontoon tooling around the lake. This year’s show will showcase over 100 pontoons of different designs and sizes. Skiing, fishing or just relaxing, there’s one for every budget. This will by far be the largest collection of pontoon boats you’ll find at any regional event this year…..and oh yeah…the best pricing you’ll find as well.
