The third annual Progressive North Coast Harbor Boat Show
comes to downtown Cleveland’s Rock and Dock Marina from Friday, Sept. 13, to Sunday, Sept. 15. The show will feature dozens of new pleasure boats ranging from small fishing models to large luxury cruisers. New this year is an eFoiling Over Erie display that will demonstrate the joys of riding the hovercraft-like watercrafts.
“It’s an opportunity for northern Ohio dealers to showcase their boats in an exceptional location in the heart of our major market city,” explains Michele Burke, president of the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association, in a press release. “It’s also an end-of-season sales event in which all 2019 models will have special closeout pricing. There will be a limited number of pre-owned boats dockside as well.”
Other special show features include the Pleasure of Sailing Experience offered by Cleveland’s Riverfront Yacht Sales. The free event is a one hour hands-on sail out on Lake Erie for adults and children ages 12 and up. It’ll highlight the basics of sailing and be offered all three show days from the end of Dock B aboard a Jeanneau 38-foot cruising sailboat.
“Cleveland is a boating and fishing hub with clubs and marinas across the lakefront,” says Burke. “This whole event is an opportunity to showcase boats and the urban boating lifestyle in the heart of our city. Most major boat brands will be represented in the show and the atmosphere in this harbor is one of energy and activity. It’s surrounded by the iconic Rock Hall, Great Lakes Science Center, the floating Steamship William G. Mather Museum, the USS Cod Submarine Museum, discounts on the Goodtime cruises, and the excellent Nuevo Restaurant with live music overlooking the boat show.”
Admission is free. Show hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
