Boat lovers will unite this weekend for the the Atlantic City Boat Show at the Convention Center.

See the latest for this upcoming boating season and look for the boat of your dreams and everything to go with it—see and shop hundreds new boats and an unbeatable assortment of marine gear at the Atlantic City Convention Center. From luxury motor and sailing yachts to sport fishers, performance boats, inflatables and personal watercraft, there are boats for every lifestyle, activity and budget.

If it’s for boating, you’ll find it here—the Marine Marketplace, a 93,000 sq. ft. “show within the show,” features 440 booths showcasing all the latest in marine technology, engines, accessories, nautical gifts, and more.

The Boat Show will also bring a nice off-season crowd to town...and for that we are thankful these days!
