Ft. Lauderdale, FL, August 30, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- The arrival of the fall season transforms Maryland’s quaint capital city and home of the U.S. Naval Academy into a super trade show attracting enthusiasts from all over the world. The locally-produced Annapolis Boat Shows are now in their 38th and 26th consecutive years, making them the world’s largest and longest running in-water boat shows.
The show itself is not just limited to square footage under one roof, it spills beyond the city dock area to restaurants, taverns and other gathering places throughout the area. Today, the Annapolis boat shows have grown to become one of the largest and most diverse hotspots for buyers, sellers and browsers of hundreds of new boats from 6’ to 60’+. The selection is staggering – from luxury cruisers to performance catamarans, attendees will be bowled over with the latest in manufacturer designs, marine propulsion systems and accessories.
This year The Catamaran Company and Lagoon have joined forces in their exhibiting efforts. The goal is to produce a unified booth that is as intriguing as it is efficient in making this luxurious breed of cats accessible for easy boarding. While their team has put a lot of effort into devising a beautiful exhibit, it is no secret that the Catamaran lineup will be what absorbs the majority of the crowd. Confirmed for display is the Lagoon 380, 420, 440 and 500 models.
Each of these display boats has had changes for 2008. There will be two new versions of the Lagoon 380 that will be offered: 380 Club and Lagoon 380 Premium. The Club version is a simplified version of the 380 S-2. The reason for this is to offer customers an extremely low price at $280,000. The Premium 380 will be the exclusive version of the Lagoon 380.
The Lagoon 420 has been added with a new mast similar to the Lagoon 500 with 2 top steps at the same level. The Lagoon 440, similar to the Lagoon 420, will have black painting on salon plexiglass window. It will also have a lazy bag option, new davits blocks, new upholstery, a new 2006 color chart, and new hull decals.
Fiddles will be placed at the top of the cockpit seat back and behind the wet-bar to prevent water from sliding in the cockpit. The Lagoon 500 will also have many of the same new features and options as the other models.
Booth access can be gained from Dock H.
This year’s show will be even better than the other ones. With the collaborative exhibition work of The Catamaran Company and Lagoon the booth will be certain to draw large crowds. Show participants will find the show line-up exciting and fun with all of the new available options. If you attend only one event this year, it should be either of the Annapolis shows – October 4th – 12th – and bring the family.
