Thinking of buying a boat? Now’s the time. The 2012 Lake Union Boats Afloat Show – one of the largest on-water shows on the West Coast – sets sail on Wednesday, September 12th and continues through Sunday the 16th. The 34th annual show marks the end of summer and the beginning of the boat buying season for many Puget Sound boaters. Whether you’re looking for your first boat or looking to trade up, the show is the place to find your dream boat. More than 50 distinct brands of yachts and 50 brokers and dealers from Washington, Oregon, California, Florida and British Columbia, Canada will display their yachts. The largest boat in the show is a Queenship Motor Yacht at 90 feet. But there will also be dozens of sport boats for the wakeboard and watersports enthusiasts– from Cobalt, Malibu and Chaparral, to name a few–ranging from 18 to 30 feet. This show has it all!
New for 2012: extended weeknight hours and Boater’s Happy Hour. Weekdays the show will now be open an extra hour. So instead of fighting rush hour traffic come on down to the show after work and spend a few relaxing hours walking the docks, kicking some anchors and having a beverage at the new Floating Beer Garden. Boater’s Happy Hour is 5-7pm on weeknights and tickets are half price.
