Largest boat show ever on horizon

Published February 7, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

“Bigger and better” boat show in Anacortes! The Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) and the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce have announced they will co-produce the new “Anacortes Boat & Yacht Show” at the Port of Anacortes Cap Sante Marina on May 17-20, 2018. The show will have in-water display space for new and brokerage boats, a shoreside tent for accessory displays, shoreside space for trailerable boats and more space for boats at the dry storage facilities just south of the marina. In all there will be space to display 300 plus boats, which will make it the largest boat show ever held in Anacortes, and will draw boaters from across the region and British Columbia.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
