Many may not be thinking of boating in January, but that’s the beauty of Charleston! Well, one aspect anyway. There will be much to do on your trip to the Lowcountry, but first you’ll need to plan your trip from January 24 through the 26th. The Charleston Boat Show is back!
There will be more boats and more brands and the best prices of the year. The show offers incredible deals, while allowing you to preview the hottest new boats on the market. It all started 34 years ago, but the Charleston Boat Show has now grown into the biggest boat show and sale in the Lowcountry. Though it specializes in new powerboats, the show features small jon boats, skiffs and cruisers, yachts and ski boats. You’ll find something for sure, no matter your taste or budget. Take advantage of great prices on many different products, but also take in the educational opportunities and entertainment! At the Charleston Boat Show, you’ll find absolutely all you need for life out on the water.
The list of boat lines is wide and long. It includes: Anglers Marine Inc., Barrier Island Marine, Berkeley Outdoors Marine, Boat N RV, Butler Marine Inc., Cape Romaine Marine, Pawleys Island Marina, Charleston Powersports, Coastal Carolina Yacht Sales, Duncan’s Boats, Dragonfly Boatworks, Fishing Kayaks SC, Hall Marine Charleston, Hanckel Marine, Longshore Boats, Matthews Marine, Palmetto Boat Sales, Regulator of Charleston, Sea Fox Boats of Charleston, Seel’s Outboard, St. Barts Yachts, Tailwalker Marine, Trophy Lakes, and Zodiac Recreational of North America.
There will also be dozens of exhibitors! From boatyard services to nautical prints and painting, you’ll have endless opportunities to learn, browse and buy. And never fear if boating isn’t your (gasp!) favorite activity, you can just try on the women’s sandals, get information on body wraps, health and wellness, or even buy yourself some of the fashion jewelry and accessories that are available. There’s truly something for everyone!
It’s all taking place at the Charleston Area Convention Center. The 34th annual Charleston Boat Show will run from Friday to Sunday. On Friday, it’s open from noon to 8 p.m., 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Parking is free and tickets are just $9 for adults, $4 for children 4 to 12, and $5 for military members with valid ID. Children under 3 get in free.
