A Note from the Chairman:

We are thrilled to welcome you to this 10th annual premier boating event on North Carolina’s beautiful Crystal Coast. Here in Morehead City, we are known for our warm hospitality, crystal blue waters and exceptional seafood. Our goal for the Crystal Coast Boat Show is to create a weekend where we can showcase these fine North Carolina qualities in hopes of providing you and your family with the education, products and services to help you enjoy the Crystal Coast year-round, all while creating memories.

In keeping with tradition, the 2017 Boat Show features new and used boats, a variety of marine products and services, outdoor gear, fishing tackle, brokers and resource conservation groups. The weekend is also home to the 44th Annual Morehead City Chapter Antique Automobile Club of America car show and the Morehead City After Hours Rotary Club Cornhole Tournament. We invite you to experience our beautiful beaches and waterfront first-hand by enjoying free sailboat rides from Sail Carteret and to get an artists’ unique perspective on our coast by visiting Carolina Artist Gallery for the “Float your Boat” nautical-theme art exhibit.

On behalf of the Crystal Coast Boat Show and all our community partners, we thank you for choosing to celebrate with us this year. For the past 10 years, thousands have enjoyed the Boat Show and its ancillary events and recently downtown Morehead City was named a “Great Main Street” by the North Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association. We hope that you, your family and friends enjoy the Crystal Coast Boat Show, downtown Morehead City and all that our region has to offer.
