It’s back, baby! The Norfolk In-Water Boat Show returns in September.
After a 10-year hiatus, the Norfolk In-Water Boat Show returns this month to the Waterside Marina at Town Point Park September 13-15. The show runs from noon to 7 PM each day.
The last show was in 2008 during a downturn of the economy, and many reasons have prompted its return. Boat show chairman Chuck Guthrie, president/owner of Lynnhaven Marine in Virginia Beach, says, “The upturn in the boating market, availability of year-end boat deals, display of quality pre-owned boats, the renovation of The Waterside District, the new first-class Hilton, great restaurants, and improvements in Norfolk’s downtown area make for a perfect environment for a regional boat show.”
Mariners and interested buyers can expect to see a wide variety of new and used powerboats on land and in the water from dealers across the state and surrounding region. At the Norfolk In-Water Boat Show, styles of boats will include luxury motor yachts, sport fishermen, personal watercraft, and inflatables.
