Annual Charleston Boat Show sails into town

The annual Charleston Boat Show — presented by Rick Hendrick Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram — has something to celebrate when it kicks off this weekend, from January 24-26. Not only is the popular show celebrating its 40th anniversary, but the industry is celebrating another very strong year. “Based on the current economic indicators, 2020 could be the best year ever for the boating industry,” said Tri-County Marine Trade Association President Chris Butler.

The Charleston Boat Show started in 1980 with a small group of local boat dealers — Duncan’s Boat City, Summerville Marine, Dorchester Marine, Outboard Shop, Seels and Marine Center (now Hanckel Marine) — showing in a parking lot. Now the show is housed in the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston, and due to continued growth, has expanded into the parking lot.

This year’s event will feature new Women on Water boating classes presented by MarineMax. The Coastal Fishing Expo, presented by Coastal Carolina Fisherman and sponsored by Field & Stream, has expanded with more presenters. All seminars are held on Saturday and Sunday of the show. Musicians Pernell McDaniel and Waltzing Matilda will perform, and there is always great family fun with a variety of activities such as pirates, Mermaid Oracle, fairy hair, face painting, SCDNR boating simulator, and much more.

The show is best known for having a huge assortment of new boats to choose from, available at great prices. Manufacturer representatives and boat dealers consider this show one of their most successful each year. There will be more than 85 boat brands and more than 100 vendors selling marine-related products and services. Some of the new vendors include Rheos Gear Floating Sunglasses, Nautiflife, Coastal Touchless Boat Canvas, Doggie Ladders, Foxy Fossils, Hull Shield, Sea Real Art, Allegiance Flag Supply, Castaway Customs, Harbor Solar and more.

The Charleston Boat Show is sponsored by SouthState Bank, Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina, Maritime Insurance International, Safe Harbor City Boatyard, Safe Harbor City, and Safe Harbor Bristol. Partners include Dicks Sporting Goods, Field and Stream, and Coastal Carolina Fisherman.
