(NORTHWEST MARINE TRADE ASSOCIATION PRESS RELEASE)
All of the boats are in place, the gear and gadgets are polished, and the red carpet is rolled out for the opening of the largest boat show on the west coast – the Seattle Boat Show, Indoors + Afloat – January 25-February 3 at CenturyLink Field and South Lake Union.
If you have not purchased tickets to the show yet, you can buy them online at www.seattleboatshow.com/index.cfm?p=buy-tickets to receive a free boating magazine, a free cup of chowder at FX McRory’s Restaurant, and if you buy four or more adult tickets, you’ll receive a free parking pass at CenturyLink Field.
This year, we’re more excited than ever to open up the Seattle Boat Show, from our Opening Night event called Uncorked which features wine tasting throughout the indoor location, to Splash – the new aerial, acrobat performance sure to provide a thrill above the boats in the West Hall. The show’s nearly 450 exhibitors are ready to share the latest innovations and technology in boating. Whether you choose to wakeboard, waterski, fish, kayak, cruise or race, under power or sail, on boats small or large, this show’s for you. And if you already own the boat of your dreams, come hone your skills at one of the 200 free seminars presented by Allstate Boat Insurance, or immerse yourself in the longer seminars offered through Boat Show University, presented by Boat Insurance Agency.
If Money Is No Object – Largest Boat in the Show
The largest in the show is 120 feet and asking price is $3,950,000 million. Tour it and a host of other luxury boats at South Lake Union and dream a little. A free shuttle runs daily between both show venues for your convenience.
Budget a Little Smaller?
Not to worry. Cruise around the show and pick from kayaks and dinghys small enough to fold and stuff into carry bags or dozens of brands of runabouts, fishing boats and inflatables that can get you boating on a budget for as low as $250 per month.
