United States Powerboat
Show Starts Tomorrow

model
This year is the 44th annual U.S. Powerboat Show held in Annapolis, Maryland. It is the largest in-water powerboat show north of Florida. Dates are Oct. 15-18. Gates are open 10am to 6:30; Sunday until 5pm.

The nation’s oldest in-water exhibition of powerboats, the United States Powerboat Show takes place in the quaint town of Annapolis, Maryland starting tomorrow and features everything from luxury motoryachts to family cruisers to catamarans, center consoles and sportboats.  There will also be a large selection of marine equipment, electronics, accessories and relevant services on display.

We have tested or reviewed over 100 boats that will be at the show. These boats have undergone our inspections and performance evaluations which can be accessed by clicking on the pictures below. Almost without exception they are built by the leading, or one of the leading builders in class. They are the boats that we recommend be used as a benchmark when visiting any other boat in class.

We suggest that show-goers print out this page and take it to the show so as not to miss any of our reviewed boats.

BoatTEST.com’s
4-DVD Boating Course

Smart Boating
Sometimes it's not what you know, but what you've forgotten. We have the perfect solution for you.

Based on the feedback we’ve been getting about BoatTEST.com's Video Boating Course it’s clearly not only for beginners, but also for veteran boaters as well. Perhaps that is why the NMMA started promoting the course after just one look. It's the most complete boating course available… period. Order your 4-disc box set...
