The Boats Afloat Show is on for September and we at Northwest Yachting are rightfully excited. The West Coast’s largest floating show, Boats Afloat features hundreds of new and used boats from ski and wake boats, pontoons, trawlers, sail, cruisers, megayachts, and more. Boats Afloat gets underway on September 14 and continues through September 18.
A few boats of note for 2016 include the Regal’s 35 Sport Coupe, Tiara 39’ Coupe, and 72’ Pilothouse Motoryacht by exhibitor Alexander Marine USA. The Sea Ray L-590 is new to the Pacific Northwest and is exhibited by Lake Union Sea Ray. Premiere Yachts debuts Regency’s P63 and P65 Motor Yachts, and the MY-37 Power Catamaran from Signature Yachts will grace the docks. Ranger Tugs, Outer Reef Yachts, Cutwater Boats, Qwest Pontoons, and much more define 2016 as a boat show to remember.
