Essex, CT (January 12, 2017) The Connecticut Spring Boat Show will be held Friday, May 5 - Sunday, May 7 at Brewer Essex Island Marina, 11 Ferry Street, Essex, CT.

Boats varying in size from 20-75ft will journey into the Essex, CT harbor attracting interested boat buyers from Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island and beyond. The inaugural show held in 2016 brought in over 2000 attendees. “The CT Spring Boat Show has everything that a prospective boat buyer wants. New and pre-owned sail and power boats all in one beautiful location. Local vendors, suppliers and seasoned marine professionals are most notable at the boat show. Boat Shows are more about people than boats. We are a service industry first and foremost. People who come to the show will be able to see the boats at the show but the years of experience and boating knowledge of the exhibitors is far and away the best product at this show”, says Matt Leduc, Yacht Broker with Latitude Yacht.
