The 2014 Oriental In-Water Boat Show Friday April 11 - Sunday April 13
Springtime, a historic boating village, a great array of exhibitors, and visitors from ten states all make for a great Oriental In-Water Boat Show.
Oriental’s annual In-water Boat Show has grown exponentially since its beginnings in 2009. Last year’s show drew sixty-six exhibitors from as far away Hampton, Virginia, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bryson City, NC. In addition to nautical goods and services, dealers and brokers also increased the number of boats shown by ten percent to over eighty, of which thirty-nine were available for in-water sea trials.
Whatever boat you may have in mind – sail or power, fishing or cruising, kayak or yacht – expect to find a good selection at a good price in Oriental.
Based on the combination of number of vendors, number of boats, sales attributed and number of attendees, the Oriental show has every indication of having become one of the largest and most successful in-water shows between Annapolis and Savannah. The 2014 show is scheduled for April 11-13. The 2013 show fired on all cylinders with 85 registered exhibitors – see the 2013 Oriental In-Water Boat Show Exhibitor List.
