This week, we want to fill you in on one of Wilmington’s fastest growing annual conventions: The Wilmington Boat Show, sponsored by Yamaha.

First launched in September of 2016, the Wilmington Boat Show highlights Wilmington as ‘North Carolina’s most accessible coastal destination,’ with our incredible location between both a major river and the Atlantic Ocean. The show features in-water and land boat displays, marine industry booths, and vendors representing waterfront lifestyle communities here in the Port City.

What’s great about this convention is its multiple locations: Port City Marina, the Wilmington Convention Center, the Battleship NC, and The Shell outdoor concert venue. Its downtown locations offer endless exploration of not just the boats on display, but also the Riverwalk, boutique shops, and plenty of restaurants for every taste.

There are some unbelievable prizes available this year, which you can find by clicking HERE. You can also check out last year’s schedule, which included a little bit of something for all ages and interests, and a list of this year’s vendors and boat lines.

We have a 50’ boat slip in the highly coveted Cape Fear Marina available. This residential-use-only marina, in the heart of downtown, is within walking distance to restaurants, shows, and the Wilmington Convention Center. The slip has easy access, a full-service boatyard equipped for all needs, and a full-time harbormaster. Call us today to capture this incredible opportunity before the Wilmington Boat Show this fall.
