Savannah Boat Show Opens March 2-4, with Sold out Show and Expanded Fishing Expo 

GREENVILLE, SC (Feb 20, 2018) The 16th Annual Savannah Boat Show is sold out of exhibit space and based on the current strength of the boating industry, this is the perfect time to buy a boat. “We produce five boat shows in the southeast and this year’s shows continue to be on an upward trend, both in exhibit space and number of boats reported to be sold so far in 2018,” said Jacqui Bomar, founder of the Savannah Boat Show and President of JBM & Associates.

Boating enthusiasts can find just about anything they are interested in and learn from the expert manufacturer representatives and the boat dealers.  The show boasts a wide variety of powerboats and accessories all under one roof.
