New Lake Michigan In-Water Boat Show Hosted At Manitowoc Marina This June

Published: Tuesday, June 11, 2019

The new Lake Michigan In-Water Boat Show will be held at Manitowoc Marina, June 21-23. Open to the general public, the latest models from Boston Whaler, Cutwater Boats, Rossiter, Cobalt, Grady White, and Catalina Yachts will all be on display and ready for inspection and qualified sea trials.

A joint effort between participating dealers Manitowoc Marina, Nestegg Marine, Beacon Marine, and Twin Cities Marine, this show will take place on the docks. Admission and parking are free and there will be food and refreshments available for purchase. Sea trials of the new boats will also be offered with advance notice. Several pre-owned brokerage boats will also be on display as well as the latest kayaks, SUPs, and Eclipse pedal boards from Hobie.

According to Manitowoc Marina President Rich Larsen, “With the indoor boat show season ended, we felt that many of the people we talked to still wanted to see the boats in the water. This new show is a perfect opportunity for our customers to experience the fun of being on the water and interact with the boats in their natural water environment.”
