From yacht brokers to marine lenders, the Boats Afloat Open House has you covered when it comes to searching for the boat of your dreams. 

The Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (NYBA), producers of the Boats Afloat Show on Lake Union, are excited to bring Pacific Northwest boaters another Open House event similar to the one they organized in the fall of 2020. This one takes place from March 19 – 21, 2021, and will be a terrific way to jumpstart what is sure to be a busy season of cruising and sailing throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Exhibitors from around Puget Sound will be hosting Open House tours from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday, and from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Saturday and Sunday. To attend the free Open house, simply schedule a tour with the business and/or broker of your choosing and they will respond directly to you to set up a time. Attendees are encouraged to visit to familiarize themselves with which dealers and brokers who will be exhibiting, and to preview one of the area’s largest collections of new and used sail and powerboats, all at special boat show pricing. At the website, attendees should also schedule their tour with exhibitors they hope to visit.

NYBA has implemented additional features on their website to help the public connect with a professional broker or marine business. Their goal is to aid you in the boat buying process, reducing potential barriers and making it accessible and friendly. With summer right around the corner, your next boat and on-the-water adventure awaits.

Note: Safety is always a top priority and exhibitors will be complying with social distancing protocols according to local, state, and CDC guidelines.

After the Open House, Boats Afloat Seminars will be held March 22nd-23rd. Registration for seminars is limited to those that attend the Open House and sign-up sheets will be available at each exhibit location during the Open House.
