New yacht show to be held in D.C.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – United States Yacht Shows will host a new yacht show this June at National Harbor on the Potomac river in the District of Columbia, organizers said in a release this week.

United States Yacht Shows – producers of the Annapolis Sail and Power, and Bay Bridge in-water boat shows – say the “Yacht Show at National Harbor,” which will be held this year from June 5 through June 8, will become an annual event.

Organizers say the show will feature the world’s most discriminating yachts, all available for purchase or worldwide charter, and offers an “unparalleled opportunity to tap into an extraordinary demographic with the means to buy or charter yachts.”

Tents and open area displays will include tenders, yacht toys, engines, electronics, propulsion systems, interior design, yacht design and construction, maintenance, provisioning, financing and more. Yacht launches and tenders will also be on display, and a special section will highlight luxury items.

“We are pleased to host the prestigious Yacht Show at National Harbor and welcome companies who target the yachting market to join our already extensive list of exhibitors,” said Ed Hartman, president, United States Yacht Shows, Inc. “The luxury yachting market in the affluent D.C. metropolitan area is essentially a recession proof market. Our new yacht show is perfectly architected to target this market.”
