Mark your calendar with this exciting news! Sausalito is hosting California’s newest boat show from Friday, October 13, to Sunday, October 15. The Sausalito Boat Show is a collaboration between Sausalito’s boating and business communities — a three-day celebration featuring sailboats, new luxury yachts, powerboats, brokerage boats, gear, accessories, and lots more.
We’ve seen many boat shows over the years, and we’re excited to see a show happening in the North Bay area!
“This inaugural event is designed to be a celebration of maritime excellence and Sausalito’s local culture — food, live music, and art,” show manager Mitch Perkins said. “We are thrilled to see the City of Sausalito, the Sausalito Economic Development Advisory Committee, and the broader San Francisco Bay Area maritime community coming together to support this new event.”
The Sausalito Boat Show is the perfect place for sailors and boaters of all manner to immerse themselves in the boating lifestyle, check out new boats, get on the water, attend educational seminars, enjoy live entertainment, and have fun. Seminars will cover topics such as getting into sailing, navigation and rigging, and marine-mammal education. Denison Yacht Brokers, H&M Marine, Club Nautique, Silver Seas Yachts, Jeff Brown Yachts, and more will fill the waterfront, both in the water and on land, with new sailboats and powerboats of a variety of sizes and prices. The display will include a large range of boat manufacturers such as Jeanneau, Beneteau, Riviera, Axopar, Cruisers Yachts, Tiara, Princess, Defiance, and Chris-Craft. The exhibits will be complemented with numerous marine service businesses including South Beach Riggers, Trident Funding, and KKMI Boatyard. Latitude 38 and Bay & Delta Yachtsman will also be exhibiting and covering the event.
As well as boats, you’ll find local food vendors offering seafood specialties and classic California cuisine, and live music performances from Bay Area favorites including Fog City Swampers, Juke Joint Band, The Millionaires, The Cruz Boys and Matt Bolton. There are even activities and crafts for kids, making the Sausalito Boat Show an event for the whole family.
