Welcome to the CT Spring Boat Show, 2023! Cat’s Paw, LLC, and WindCheck Magazine are proud to manage this unique event for the participating Yacht Brokers and Exhibitors that serve the Boating Communities of Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York. They are the ones who are making this growing event one of the most interesting and fun ways to provide the experienced boater with high-quality products to view but also help less experienced, aspiring people to get involved and enjoy being on the water. 

A critical factor for this experience is the venue provided by Safe Harbor Marinas, on bucolic Essex Island. It is truly unique among boat shows. The Island and the town of Essex beautifully represent the best of historic coastal New England and why we love to be on and around the water in the northeast. We are working very hard with our Sponsors and Exhibitors to develop this show with a “something for everyone” approach while also encouraging a giving back mindset with our charity partner, SailsUp4Cancer. In 2018, with the help of the Essex Steam Train and Riverboat Co., we raised over $10,000.00 for SU4C. Since that year, we have steadily climbed the ladder to $23,000.00 in 2022. While this may not seem like a lot of money in this day and age, combined with the all-volunteer, negligible administration cost model which SU4C uses to do its good works for families impacted by cancer, these dollars have a real impact. On their behalf, we say thank you! 

We also think it is important to work with other relevant charitable organizations which enhance the Show. This year, those are the CT Fund for the Environment/Save The Sound, The Whale and Dolphin Conservation. 

Thanks for coming and see you on the Island! Buy Your Tickets Here
