Anacortes Boat & Yacht Show

 After happening virtually in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Anacortes Boat & Yacht Show is back May 21-22, 2021 as the Anacortes Boat & Yacht Spring Sale. This is the first in-person boat sale since January 2020! 

This free “Open House” style sale will happen from 10am-6pm daily on the docks of Cap Sante Marina at the Port of Anacortes and feature 60+ new and used boats and yachts of all sizes from the industry’s top brands, dealers, and brokers. 

Produced by the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) and Anacortes Chamber of Commerce, the sale will closely follow COVID-19 protocols and safety guidelines. 

“We are ecstatic to be back in Anacortes for this year’s sale and confident that we can put on the sale safely,” said NMTA President George Harris. “Our exhibitors are equally excited to be back on the water showing boats in one of the best boating towns in America.” 

Anacortes is conveniently located between Seattle and Vancouver B.C. and as close as you can get to the San Juan Islands. Known for its maritime roots, the town has 40 marine-related businesses to cover every boater’s wants and needs. In addition, its beautiful downtown streets adjacent to the sale boast an incredible variety of dining, shopping, and educational opportunities.
