It’s a boat show tailored for cruisers, and for the first time, visitors can enjoy Trawlerfest right in the middle of downtown Baltimore.

TrawlerFest, which runs September 25- 29, will feature a large in-water display of new and used cruising powerboats, along with marine gear and services, and demonstrations, too.

It’s being held at the newly-renovated Harbor East Marina, at the east edge of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, within walking distance of high-end shopping, museums, and dozens of restaurants.

Chesapeake Bay Magazine’s ICW & Atlantic Coast Mile by Mile and Planning Guide is a proud sponsor of this event.

There is plenty to learn at TrawlerFest, with 27 nautical seminars, including courses in diesel engines, boat handling, boat buying, and a brand new, in-depth weather course from forecaster Chris Parker. Seminars are offered from Tuesday, September 25 through Saturday September 29. The in-water boat show is open Thursday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
