The Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (NYBA) is bringing boaters and those dreaming of boating a new Spring Show scheduled for April 28 through May 1st. It’s another opportunity for folks to buy, sell, and discover all the possibilities that boating has to offer. Show Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday; and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The new Spring Boats Afloat Show is being held at the same location as the long-held Lake Union Boats Afloat Show. That’s right, at Lake Union Piers, previously known as Chandler’s Cove. The five-acre site is currently being developed by Vulcan Real Estate and will showcase lovely new green spaces, walkways, and modern redesigned buildings. Construction will be ongoing but will not disrupt the Spring and Fall Boats Afloat Shows. For food and bar service, attendees can step aboard the 90-foot Olympic Star dockside, and grab meals to-go and tasty snacks; or lounge for a while and dream about your next boat. The vessel is being provided for use during the show by Lakeside Restaurant and Waterways Cruises.

NYBA’s new Spring Boats Afloat Show will follow the same format as the ever-popular fall show, which will be held September 15-18 this year. Don’t forget about the VIP preview night the day before opening. Bring the whole family, enjoy the spring weather, and check out those beautiful boats and marine accessories.
