Springtime, a historic boating village, a great array of exhibitors, and visitors from ten states all make for a great Oriental In-Water Boat Show. Oriental’s annual In-water Boat Show has grown exponentially since its beginnings in 2009.
Oriental’s annual In-Water Boat Show has grown exponentially since its beginnings in 2009. The 2017 show drew over 100 exhibitors from as far away Hampton, Virginia, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bryson City, NC. In addition to nautical goods and services, dealers and brokers brought in boats on land and in the slips at Oriental Harbor Marina, many of which were available for in-water sea trials.
Based on the combination of number of vendors, number of boats, sales attributed and number of attendees, the Oriental show has become one of the largest and most successful in-water shows between Annapolis and Savannah.
The Oriental In-Water Boat Show, Nautical Flea Market & Wooden Boat Exhibition is produced by the Oriental Rotary Club and is the principal fund-raiser for our annual scholarships and other charitable works.
