Variety Of Boats & Marine Products

Last year, there were more than $90 million in boats and marine products for display, including more than 135 in-water vessels and an additional 450-plus boats displayed on land. This year, show organizers report a sell-out crowd of exhibitors, promising even more variety.

The Triple Crown Challenge, Benefitting St. Jude

Contestants battle it out with marlin-sized rods and reels from identical fighting chairs in an offshore-styled tug of war that's a lot of fun for everyone. One hundred percent of the funds raised go to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the real winners of the Triple Crown Challenge.

Fun For The Entire Family

The kids will enjoy free art lessons from renowned artist Larry Rackley throughout the show. Saturday is Ladies’ Day, the highlight of which is the Lucca Fashion Show, a professionally produced, high-energy fashion show complete with models sporting the latest fashion trends.

Exhibitor displays, instructional seminars, live music and more will be available each afternoon.

Numerous other two- and three-bedroom condos are nearby in Orange Beach and provide a host of amenities to create a fun environment for time spent outside the boat show.
