Get ready, aspiring sailors, prospective pirates and would-be captains! From Friday, April 21 through Sunday, April 23, the slips at Lanier Islands’ Sunset Cove and Big Beach docks will be filled with new, top-of-the-line boats. During the 2017 In-Water Boat Show, qualified buyers can take a test-drive or take part in a demonstration of some models. In addition to boats, the event will feature a number of exhibitors and vendors, in addition to live music, fun in the sun and games on the sand.

The beachfront eatery will also showcase great food and drink specials for Boat Show guests. The best part is, admission to the event is FREE!
