SEATTLE – November 13, 2009 – Mark your calendars! The BIG Seattle Boat Show, Indoors + Afloat, is just around the corner. Dropping anchor on Thursday January 29, 2010 and continuing through Saturday February 6, it signals the beginning of ‘dream season’ for boaters and would-be boaters. It’s the place to find everything for the boat you own, plan your year’s boating activities or find the boat of your dreams. And this year one lucky show-goer will win a $5,000 shopping spree to help make the dreams a reality.


“The Seattle Boat Show has always been the granddaddy of boat shows on the west coast, drawing visitors from more than 35 states and Canada,” said Brad Vickers, Seattle Boat Show manager. “It’s the one you don’t want to miss. I’m confident that 2010 will continue the tradition. Boaters will not be disappointed by the variety of exhibitors, boats, accessories and exciting promotions in 2010.”
