To Sea: Naples Boat Show Downtown

It’s no secret: the waterways in and around Naples are one of Southwest Florida’s defining features. Bolstering recreation and tourism industry, as well as the local economy, the mangrove-fringed waterways offer boundless opportunity for fun and relaxation. And one of the best ways to get out there and explore is by boat. Showcasing the boating lifestyle, and the latest and greatest from the maritime industry, will be the second annual Naples Boat Show Downtown on October 3-4.

 Presented by the Marine Industries Association of Collier County (MIACC), the two-day boat show will anchor itself in Crayton Cove and the Naples City Dock, and will feature some the latest vessels hitting the seas. From nine-foot dinghies to 65-foot yachts, fishing boats to cabin cruisers, boats will be on display on land for full-hull inspections, and in the water, giving potential buyers an opportunity to experience the ship afloat. There will even be demo rides striking out in the Naples Bay to test those sea legs, a rarity at most boat shows. There will also by industry experts on hand to help guide potential buyers through the sometimes-difficult experience of purchasing a boat, as well as vendors carrying the latest and greatest boating accessories, gadgets and gear just hitting the market.
