It may not be boating or sailing weather yet in New England but folks attending this year’s New England Boat Show are getting into the swing of things.
Buying a boat, according to a CBS Money Report, is one way to “buy happiness”; and I must say that after time on a few yachts at the New England Boat Show I could not stop smiling. Spending time on one 30-foot yacht swept me away to a distant place with family, a nice cold drink, and the soothing ocean. Of course I was still just sitting in the yacht in the convention center, but imagining yourself on one is part of what the show is all about.
Here are some words on the show from the show manager Joe O’Neal: “The New England Boat Show not only provides new and seasoned boaters the ideal chance to compare hundreds of brands and get a great bargain, but also an annual tradition where families and friends can gather together for some nautical fun while preparing for boating season. And with the addition of SAILFEST, new activities and educational courses, everyone is sure to be inspired to discover why life is truly better with a boat.”
The event was held at the Boston Convention Center and concluded on March 6, 2011.
Below are some of my favorites from the show:
