New and used power boats featured will include Carver, Cruiser, Four Winns, Mainship, Marquis, Regal, Sabre, and Silverton.
At the Speakers tent, special guest speakers Paul and Sheryl Shard, hosts of the popular sailing program “Distant Shores,” will be speaking on their new boat and ocean crossing. Rob MacLeod our “Speaker Tent” host will give tips on boat handling. A vast array of on land displays featuring marine equipment, insurance, finance, charters, sail makers, Custom Boarder Services, Services Canada, and the Coast Guard will be on site. Boaters can write their Operator’s Exam at the show, and relax afterwards at the Boat Show Refreshment Garden to the sounds of Chuck Jackson’s Blues and Jazz band.
An exciting new addition this year is the Charity Consignment tent! Sponsored by BoatersLiveAuction.com, this tent will be available for you to drop off all of your used boat gear. Price the item(s), leave them for us to sell, and your return is 60%. Proceeds will go to local Junior Sailing programs and Sick Kids Hospital.
Lori Mason of “The Store”, and founder of the Port Credit in-water Boat Show, says, “This is a boat show for boaters put on by boaters. We bring everyone together from the boating community. The attendees tell us they have a great time meeting new and old friends, buying boats and marine products, and simply having fun messing about in boats. And it’s convenient to visit, with a location that’s only 15 minutes East of Toronto, and 10 minutes from Oakville.”
