Something for Everyone at Upcoming Winter Boat Shows

Despite the snowy winter Yarmouth Boat Yard owner Steve Arnold wants to remind Portland area boaters that the 2011 boating season is just around the corner. There are four upcoming boats shows in the Portland and Boston areas to help kick off the season. Attending a boat show is a fun way to learn about the latest marine products and services, according to Arnold.

“We’re fortunate to have a number of first-class shows in the area,” said Arnold, a former Wall Street executive who has owned and operated the Yarmouth Boat Yard since 2004. “The boat shows are a lot of fun and can be very informative for consumers.”

Visitors can attend free clinics and seminars, enjoy a chowder cook-off and even be the skipper of your own sloop at the radio controlled sailboat regatta pool.
