In-Water Boat Show Opens This Weekend at the Old Port of Montreal

The third annual Montreal In-Water Boat Show kicks off from September 7 to 9 at the Old Port of Montreal. Visitors will have the opportunity to try more than 100 boats of all types, including large luxury yachts, and enjoy a variety of dryland exhibits in the beautiful park beside basin of the Port d'Escale of the Old Port. Public admission is free.

Presented by the Quebec Maritime Association (QMA), the Montreal In-Water Boat Show attracted more than 12,000 visitors last year. Because the show is in water, the event is different from all other nautical exhibitions in the province. This year's show will feature luxury yachts of 45 and 60 feet, larger than those accommodated at other boat show venues in Quebec. Further, being an in-water show, visitors will have an opportunity to test-drive boats on the water.

The show is open from 10:00 am till 6:00 pm Friday to Saturday, and from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm on Sunday.
