My wife and I would like to get to a decent boat show
and take a look at as many different cruising sailboats as possible. We're not really in the market for a cruising boat
yet, but just want to find something close to start getting a feel for what we like.
I've done some searching and see varying responses to the valy of this particular show, but since most of those threads are several years old. I thought it might be worth asking for recent info since the 2014 show is this March and is only about a 3 hour drive for us. Is this show still really focused on fishing
or will we be able to look at a variety of cruising boats, new/used doesn't matter much to us at the moment. I know we could technically track down a broker and look at a bunch of used boats while we're there, but since we wouldn't be looking to buy a big boat
for at least 2-3 years, we don't want to waste anyone's time. That being said we'd love to start getting an in person feel for what we like/dislike.
I know the Annapolis
show is the holy grail but at this point the expense of flying up there to check it out just isn't worth it to us.
Anyway, you're thoughts and recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
