The 2018 Oriental In-Water Boat Show Friday April 13 - Sunday April 15

boat show logoSpringtime, 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. The 2017 show drew over 100 exhibitors from as far away Hampton, Virginia, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bryson City, NC. In addition to nautical goods and services, dealers and brokers brought in boats on land and in the slips at Oriental Harbor Marina, many of which were available for in-water sea trials.

Based on the combination of number of vendors, number of boats, sales attributed and number of attendees, the Oriental show has become one of the largest and most successful in-water shows between Annapolis and Savannah. The 2018 show is scheduled for April 13-15.
