Thousands Expected at New York National Boat Show

Thousands Expected at

Thoughts of snow and blizzards will turn to dreams of sun and smooth seas as bareboat enthusiasts across the northeast gather in the Big Apple for the New York National Boat Show.

Tens of thousands of boating and fishing enthusiasts start their season at the New York National Boat Show. With its 105-year history the show is recognized as THE place to see the latest and greatest in boating.

The oldest boat show in the U.S. will be celebrating its 106th anniversary next month, Jan 19-23, 2011, at the huge Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in the Big Apple.

If you enjoy the bareboat lifestyle, this first-of-the season show is a must to attend.  From yachts and cruisers to bass and pontoon boats, from canoes and kayaks to fishing boats and personal watercraft, from electronics and engines to fishing and dive gear, from financing and insurance to travel destinations, you’ll see it here first.

A new exhibit that caught our attention is the “History of Boating in America.”  With so much emphasis on sustainable, , it’s interesting to note the some of the earliest tenders and launches in America were powered by electricity, not fuel!  Step back in time to admire the craftsmanship and beauty of bygone eras-a variety of vintage craft will be on display. Highlights include an 1899 Elco electric launch and a fully-restored 1937 Syracuse Electric launch.

Whether you dream of a odyssey, or wish to consider the purchase of a new boat, we couldn’t think of a better reason to visit the Big Apple.  See the boat show during the day and enjoy a Broadway show at night. The city is still quite festive in January.
