Arizona’s Largest Boat Show Returns To Lake Havasu For 28th Consecutive Year
“We’ll have to go some to beat last year,” remarked Lake Havasu Boat Show organizer, Bob Brown. “Our 2018 Lake Havasu Boat Show was a record setter, largest in our history with over 140 exhibitors and more than 9,000 attending visitors.
We’ve set the bar really high, but we’re looking forward to an even better show this year, April 5-7, 2019 at Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4.
Unlike Conventional Shows
Unlike conventional boat shows that occupy indoor land-locked venues, the Lake Havasu Boat Show, co-sponsored by Jet Renu and Mohave State Bank, is all outdoors and on-the-water. The Windsor 4 area borders the famous London Bridge Channel and the northern basin of Lake Havasu, and that immediate water access will again be put to good use.
More Boater Interaction
“Windsor 4 has a first-class seven-lane launch ramp, courtesy docks and two large white-sand beaches,” said Brown. “There will be a variety of demo boat models at the courtesy docks including pontoons, wakesport boats and family sportboats.
For those interested in checking out and test riding on some the newest kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, that activity will be happening from the main beach. There’s no boat show in the country that offers more boater interaction with product for consumers.”
Boat To The Show
Something else boaters will find appealing is the ability to ‘boat-to-the-boat-show’ with their own boat. There’s a finely manicured 600-foot long State Park white-sand beach directly adjacent to the boat show along London Bridge Channel’s northern shore. Boaters can pull their boats up on the beach for no charge and walk directly into the boat show. Normal boat show admission prices do prevail.
If You Like High Performance …
“We expect between 250 to 300 new boats to be on display at the boat show,” commented Brown, “including lots of 2019 models. And if you’re into high performance and exotic marine equipment, no place in the western United States will have as many custom boat manufacturers present plus Mercury Racing with their full complement of engine and propulsion models.”
A fun new addition to the Havasu Boat Show this year is an on-land poker run that’s free to enter to all admission ticket purchasers. The Boat Show poker run is being presented by Adspay. Attendees to the show only need to sign-up when they enter and begin collecting cards at various designated exhibitor booths located throughout the show. If you’re lucky enough to collect a winning poker hand, there’s a boat-load of great prizes.
The 28th Annual Lake Havasu Boat Show, presented in conjunction with the Lake Havasu Marine Association, opens to the public on Friday, April 5 at noon. Saturday and Sunday, gates open at 9am. Admission is $8.00 for adults and kids six and under are free, and parking is also free.
The Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4 is located at 171 London Bridge Road, next to the Hampton Inn. Exhibitors interested in participating at the boat show should call 951-501-0210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is available on the website at www.lakehavasuboatshow.com
