2021 Boat Show Schedule:

Please note:  Due to continually changing COVID restrictions, our 2021 show schedule is obviously quite up in the air, so please double check before traveling to these shows, and check back or call to see if we have added more.  Thanks!

May 29 – June 6, 2021:  

Location:  Venice Italy.

Please note:  As of March 15 this show is still technically on but recently implemented lockdowns in all of Italy makes it’s occurance questionable.  Please double check with the website, or us before traveling for this show.
The Venice Boat Show is promoted by the City of Venice and organized through Vela Spa Company, in collaboration with the Italian Navy.
Located in the Arsenale of Venice consisting of large harbor for in-water boats, 30,000 sq. meters of outdoor exhibition area and 10,000 sq. meters of indoor pavilions.   The venue can accommodate more than 250 boats.
One of the main features of the show is an Electric Boat Regatta, taking place over the period of two days, showcasing the unique attributes of a wide variety of electric boats, and inviting the public to participate.
We will have one of our 19’ (5.7m) Trouvé  launches and possibly a 15’ Lightning Bug as well.


Sept. 1-5, 2021:  Please click here for photos of the 2018 Amsterdam show on Flickr

Location:  Lelystad, Netherlands.

HISWA In-water boat show, Batavia Harbor, Lelystad. We will have a 15′ Lightning Bug on display and a  19‘ Trouvé  in the harbor available for demo rides.  The HISWA Te-water is the only in-water boat show in Holland and the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. Unfortunately the Amsterdam Boat Show, normally held in March, is canceled for 2021 so this will be our only show in the Netherlands this year.  Please come out to this beautiful venue to experience our boats first hand!


Sept 24-26, 2021:    

Location: Oriental, North Carolina.

Oriental In-Water Boat Show, Downtown on the beautiful Oriental waterfront.  A quaint little town on the banks of the Neuse River, considered to be the sailing capital of NC as it is one of the few areas inside our coast with deep water.  This is a great local show, and we love attending whenever we can.  We will have one 15’ Lightning Bug displayed on land and most likely a boat in the water available for demo rides.  Please give us a call for more details if you are interested.


Oct. 1-3, 2021:

Location: Wilmington NC.  

Wilmington In-water Boat Show,  Port City Marina and Wilmington Convention Center.  Now in it’s fourth year, this event is shaping up to be the Carolinas’ premier in-water boat show.  Located on the Cape Fear River, Wilmington is one of North Carolina’s great historic towns.  We will be displaying one 19’ Trouvé and one 15’ Lightning Bug.  Both will be available for in-water demos on the Cape Fear River, which is the perfect opportunity to see the nearby WWII era battleship USS-North Carolina up close.
