This year’s Seattle Boats Afloat Show 2019 was once again a roaring success. The West Coast’s largest floating boat show, Seattle Boats Afloat is one of the region’s most eagerly awaited annual events, especially by yacht and seafaring enthusiasts.
Now in its 41st year, this year’s show saw more than 200 stunning vessels on display, including hundreds of new and used yachts, alongside ski boats, wake boats, pontoons, and cruisers.
Amongst the many yachts on the show were yachts by Worth Avenue Yachts. A leading yacht broker, Worth Avenue Yachts were the official sponsor of the Seattle Boats Afloat Show 2019, along with supporting sponsor YachtWorld.
“Our first Boats Afloat Show in Seattle was a shining success,” Ray Prokorym of Worth Avenue Yachts said. “The Worth Avenue Yachts team represented an array of vessels that were highlighted throughout the show and saw steady, qualified traffic. We are very pleased with the turnout and can’t wait to continue to expand here on the West Coast.”
Held on the beautiful South Lake Union from September 12-15, the Seattle Boats Afloat Show 2019 not only included a plethora of some of the world’s best yachts for sale in Seattle, but also showcased the latest and best yachting technology, gadgets, yachting gear, lending and insurance, accessories, and more. The show also included kid’s sailing lessons, family boat rides, and exhibitor displays, offering a truly fabulous day out for the entire family.
“The 2019 Boats Afloat Show was a grand success,” Kirsten Berg, events and promotions manager of the Northwest Yacht Brokers Association, said. “The 2019 show saw 7,252 attendees, showcased 203 new and brokerage vessels, had 52 in-water exhibiting companies and 42 shoreside vendors.”
Ms Berg added: “The Boats Afloat Show is a unique show in a number of ways – not only is it the West Coast’s largest floating boat show, it’s also one of the few area events that showcases both new and brokerage product. The Pacific Northwest boasts incredible cruising destinations and the show helps ramp up excitement for using one’s yacht for new adventures.”
