The Southwest Virginia Boat Dealer’s Association Boat Show in Roanoke is quickly approaching. Mark your calendar for the 2015 Boat Show taking place February 20th, 21st, and 22nd. This year marks the 40th Annual show that will be taking place at the Roanoke Civic Center/Berglund Center located at 710 Williamson Road in Roanoke. If you have any interest in boating you need to come check it out, whether you own a boat or not. The event has grown tremendously over the past few years and has nearly doubled in size through its offerings of boats, dealers, marinas, services, and vendors.

Personal Watercraft, Pontoons, Boats, and More!
Exciting events coupled with special deals make this a show not to miss! It is fun for the entire family with a boater education class also being taught. Do you need to complete the boating safety education compliance requirement for the state of Virginia? Then consider attending the Virginia Boating Safety Education Classroom Course on February 21st from 9am to 5pm. This course is offered for free and is recommended for anyone 12 years of age or older. Remember that by 2016, all operators of Personal Watercraft must possess a boating safety education completion card on board when operating a Personal Watercraft (PWC). Anyone 30 years of age or younger must have the compliance requirement met to operate a motorboat. If you are interested in attending then click here to register, seating is limited.

This once-a-year event is a great place to see everything in one convenient location and easily compare boats and other products side-by-side. If you are in the market to buy a boat, then be sure to visit the show to take advantage of special manufacturer boat-show-only promotions.
