Boats, Fun and More at the Emerald Coast Boat & Lifestyle Show

Emerald Coast Boat & Lifestyle Show

For some of us, it is inevitable. It happens every year around this time. It’s a cumulative effect. The sun sets later. Temperatures creeping up to feeling very Spring-like. And even though we don’t want to let our thoughts wander from our current task, we can’t help ourselves. We cannot ignore the symptoms of our ailment. We think about being on the water. We think about being on a boat. We think about being on our boat. We think, “I should just go ahead and buy that new boat!”

We have a full-blown case of Boat Fever! And no amount of online browsing, video watching or magazine reading can alleviate our pain. We need to see boats in person. We need to climb up on them. We need to open hatches. We need to compare them side-by-side. We need to be around shiny new boats, and we need to be around a lot of them!
Luckily for us, the Emerald Coast Boat and Lifestyle Show will soon be here, and it’s just what the doctor ordered!

Emerald Coast Boat and Lifestyle ShowThe annual show, which has become one of the can’t-miss events of the early Spring, returns to its’ picturesque home venue at Aaron Bessant Park, adjacent to Pier Park in Panama City Beach, March 1-3.

Each year, the show features the top dealers representing the best brands of boats and personal watercraft, and this year is no different. There will be more marine dealers than ever at the show, drawing from all across the region. Boats will be on display from dealers in Dothan, Panama City Beach, Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Niceville, Shalimar, Eastpoint, Bonifay and Orange Beach.

With more than $40 million of marine inventory in the park, dealers will be featuring ‘A Boat for Everyone.’

From entry-level boats to quad-powered, 45’ center console fishing rigs that always draw big crowds, fishing boats, wake boats, cruising boats, personal watercraft and outboard manufacturers are on site offering best-of-year financial incentives and unbeatable ‘Boat Show Pricing,’ which is indeed a real thing!

Boats and So Much More

In addition to hundreds of boats, the Emerald Coast Boat and Lifestyle Show lives up to its billing with an ever-expanding line-up of products for anyone who loves living or visiting the Emerald Coast. Street-legal golf carts, paddle boards, electric bikes, personal watercraft, fishing tackle and seminars, outdoor furniture and service providers for everything from boat maintenance to installing your new dock will be at Aaron Bessant Park the first weekend in March.
