The Maine Boatbuilders Show is one the biggest and best custom fiberglass and wooden boat shows on the East Coast. Last year’s event saw some 1,500 builders, exhibitors, and manufacturers – and more than 4,000 attendees!
The 3 day event covers everything from sailboats and powerboats to canoes, kayaks, and row boats. Plus, the craftsmen who built the boats will be on hand to discuss their work.
If you think the boats are amazing, what until you learn what went into building them!
Vendors and manufacturers will be at the show, too, selling welding supplies, contractor gear, material handling equipment, trailer parts, and much more. Many of the companies exhibiting at Maine Boatbuilders Show only attend one or two other shows a year.
A Maritime Flea Market offers unique items of interest, often at bargain prices, all three days of the show.
Equipment techs, marine engineers, manufacturers, and others will be on hand to offer their expertise. You’ll see innovative new ideas, cutting edge technologies, and maybe finally get to the bottom of that one issue that’s been driving you nuts!
The Maine Boatbuilders Show offers a series of free seminars each year, usually on boating and boat ownership. They also offer an accredited series for more knowledgeable boaters. There really is no other show quite like it for the boating enthusiast – and we can get you in for FREE!
