The only major in-water boat show in the Hampton Roads region, the Norfolk In-Water Boat Show made its grand return to the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront last year after significant interest from Hampton Roads boating industry leaders. A total of 15 of the East Coast’s top dealers and brokers will be showcasing more than 35 premier power boat brands, including both new and used luxury motor yachts, sport fishers, personal watercraft, and much more.


The 3-day event will take place at the Waterside Marina, Town Point Park, and Waterside District. In-water boats will be on display in the Waterside Marina, while on-land boat exhibits will be located in Town Point Park next to the Waterside District.

Boat Show Chairman Chuck Guthrie, the President/Owner of Lynnhaven Marine in Virginia Beach, explains that “the upturn in the boating market, availability of year-end boat deals, display of quality pre-owned boats, the renovation of The Waterside District, the new first-class Hilton “The Main”, great restaurants, and improvements in Norfolk’s downtown area make for a perfect environment for a regional boat show.”  Guthrie adds, “Bluewater Yacht Sales Professional Jud Black, Norfolk Marine President Jason Murphy and Prince William Marina Owner Carlton Phillips have been instrumental in the planning process to bring about a show that will best serve our local and regional boating enthusiasts.”
