NEW! WORKING THE COAST:
CHARTING THE FUTURE

This year’s show salutes those who make
their livelihood from the sea.
"Working the Coast" will bring together builders and finishers of commercial vessels, vendors and installers of heavy-duty diesel engines and marine electronics, and reps from fisheries management and other agencies to show their wares.
On the docks, attendees can climb aboard
an assortment of working vessels
as part of the show's "Icon Boats" exhibit (see below).

ICON BOATS
A different vessel will visit the show docks each day.
Welcome aboard!
It's all part of the show's "Working the Coast:
Charting the Future" theme.

Friday: Visit aboard Sunbeam V, the official ship of the
Maine Seacoast Mission
Saturday: Find out what it's like to be a merchant-mariner-in-training aboard R/V/ Friendship, a research and training vessel from
Maine Maritime Academy
Sunday: View the Friendship sloop Blackjack, originally built by Morse
in 1900 and recently refit and relaunched at Rockland's
own Sail Power and Steam Museum.

WE LOVE VOLUNTEERS!

The Maine Boat & Home Show would not be possible without the tremendous efforts of our intrepid volunteers. From setting up tents and traffic cones, to staffing ticket booths and collecting trash and recycling, our volunteers make it all work.

Are you interested in volunteering? Great! We need handy men and women, hosts and hostesses, and people who love to be by the water helping out. As a thanks, we'll give you two show passes, a cool Show Crew t-shirt, and a year's subscription to Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors magazine. Just click here to fill out the form, or send an email to showinfo@maineboats.com for more information.
