So, About Those Annapolis Boat Shows (E-87)

When an Annapolitan says “Boat Show” it can elicit several responses from a groan to a slamming door from a boater on the way to the show!

We sit down with Paul Jacobs who is the GM and one of the owners of the Annapolis Boat Shows and talk about THE shows in the fall that are so crucial to the maritime industry in Annapolis and are the gold standard for in-water shows worldwide.

We talk about history, what it mean financially to the City of Annapolis, how it has grown, what is new, and what the future looks like.

We talk about the different types of boaters and what they are looking for, how to survive the great recession by selling larger boats (doesn’t seem logical does it?), and a bunch more!

Finally, we talk about two upcoming (smaller) boat shows. The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show from April 20-22 and the Bay Bridge Boat Show on Kent Island from April 27-29.

And, if you would like to attend either of these shows—be one of the first five to send us an email asking for a pair of tickets!  Please specify which show..and include your mailing address so we can get them out to you!
