If you missed the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in early November and the St. Pete Boat Show in late November, and can’t make the Stuart Boat Show in mid-January or the Miami Boat Show in February, then point your bow toward Jacksonville, Florida.
The Jacksonville Marine Trades Association presents the 71st Annual Jacksonville Boat Show January 26-28. As one of the oldest boat shows in the country, Jacksonville is excited about the 2018 show, since more than 25 dealers are expected to bring hundreds of boats guaranteeing at least a couple of boats on display for everyone’s taste and budget. Activities include seminars on fishing and boat safety. Events are also planned
for children to help introduce the next generation to a life on the water. The show will be held at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, 1000 Water Street in Jacksonville.
