Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show returns this weekend

The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show is all set to take place this weekend at the Annapolis City Dock in downtown Annapolis, Maryland. Smaller in volume than the fall show, the spring show offers an impressive range of boats. There will be a selection of electric yacht tenders, racing dinghies, daysailers, cruisers, and multihulls with LOAs ranging from 11’ to 60’ (see full list).

There will be more than 40 sailboats on display and over 100 total exhibitors at this year’s show. It is open to seasoned sailors as well as those new to the maritime world. It runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 28.

In addition to a wide diversity of boats, the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show includes a marketplace for the latest in marine equipment, electronics, clothing, and accessories. New to the show this year is the No Wake Zone, a space to house local wine and spirits tastings, live music, and an outdoor-wear fashion show. 

Set against the backdrop of Annapolis, a city known for its rich maritime history, the show draws visitors not only for the boats but also for the scenic harbor views and the variety of dining and shopping options in the city’s historic downtown.

The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show aims to cater to a broad range of interests, providing something for everyone whether they’re in the market for a new yacht or just looking to enjoy a day out by the water.

General admission to the show is $18 online and $20 at the gate, while children under 12 can attend for free.
