About the Show

Port City Marina opened in July 2015, and is the home for all in-water displays at the show. There will be a demo dock for serious boat buyers to take a spin.  Manufacturers and boat dealers from the Carolinas and beyond will be on hand with their end of season deals as well as the newest models for the upcoming boating season. Pier 33 will have several boat displays along with music and food options. The Wilmington Convention Center will feature boat displays as well as marine industry exhibits. Fishing and sailing seminars and other fun events will take place there as well throughout the weekend. The famed Riverfront will have 70 vendors selling everything you need for your coastal lifestyle. Make sure to save your energy, the Wilmington Boat Show runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
