boat show 2014New this year, the 45-year-old Annapolis sailboat show will expand its already large selection of new and premiering sailboats to include previously owned sailboats in a floating marina in St. Mary’s Cove.

The United States Sailboat Show, opening October 9-13, 2014, will feature “Brokerage Cove,” a show within a show, overflowing with used boats presented by regional boat brokers and available for immediate sale. The brand new venue is just inside the Spa Creek Bridge and one block from the main show.

Brokerage Cove is an easy walk from the hundreds of brand new and premiering boats on display in downtown Annapolis. Buses, land shuttles and water taxis will ferry attendees between the two venues and from parking lots to ticket booths providing easy access to Brokerage Cove.  Show goers will cool off in fun and relaxing water taxis that run continuously between the Annapolis City Dock and St. Mary’s Cove.

Every October serious sailors from around the globe gather on miles of docks in the historic seaport of Annapolis, Maryland for the United States Sailboat Show. The price of admission ($18) provides entry into both the United States Sail Show and Brokerage Cove.
