Boat Show Chairman Chuck Guthrie, President/Owner of Lynnhaven Marine in Virginia Beach explains “The upturn in the boating market, availability of year-end boat deals, display of quality pre-owned boats, the renovation of The Waterside District, the new first-class Hilton “The Main”, great restaurants, and improvements in Norfolk’s downtown area make for a perfect environment for a regional boat show”. Guthrie adds, “Bluewater Yacht Sales Professional Jud Black, Norfolk Marine President Jason Murphy, and Prince William Marina Owner Carlton Phillips have been instrumental in the planning process to bring about a show that will best serve our local and regional boating enthusiasts.” The 2020 Norfolk In-Water Boat Show will feature a wide variety of new and used power boats on land and in-water from dealers across the state and surrounding regions with the newest and best in luxury motor yachts, sport fish, and personal watercraft. The Norfolk show makes boat buying easy and economical and fun. “Attending the Norfolk In-Water Boat Show will be the next best thing to being out on the water for local boating enthusiasts”, according to Guthrie.
