The Jacob Javits Center in New York City opened its doors at noon today for the 110th annual New York Boat Show. From the windows of the second-floor press room, we media types got a sweeping overhead view of the entire operation. Over 250 boats, from little inflatables to 60-foot yachts, could be seen on display. As could the first of an expected 40,000 visitors looking for their dream boat, or for accessories for the one they already own.
Thinking of heading over? You’ll find displays from Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Cobalt, Scout, Chris-Craft, Grady-White and more. If you want to get a sneak preview, go to the boat show website and use its Boat Finder feature to hone in on some top choices.
You can cab it or Uber it, but the good news is that the New York City Subway system now has a stop close to the Javits. Take the 7 Train to its last stop going West, at 11th street.
We’ll see you there. Can’t make it? Look for our exclusive boat show coverage in these places:
