The Anacortes Boat Show began 20 years ago with five brokerage offices displaying 30 – 40 small to medium size boats. Today, the annual show has grown into a regional event. Fifteen yacht brokerage offices display over 100 power and sail boats ranging from trailerable sport and fishing boats to large sail and power yachts capable of cruising the world.
