J/70 & J/97 @ Jamestown Boat Show

J/97 sailing offshore on Narrangansett Bay(Jamestown, RI)- Kick off the boating season at the Rhode Island Boat Show, Rhode Island’s largest in-water Spring Boat Show and Open House, running from May 3rd to 4th, 2014. The two-day event showcases a wide selection of sailboats, as well as the latest in marine accessories and services. Meet the experts, take a sailing lesson, try out a paddle-board, and sample some of the finest food from around Rhode Island.

Here are two more awesome reasons to attend the Jamestown boat show, both the J/70 and the J/97 will be on display.  The J/70 fleet in Narragansett Bay continues to grow.  Enthusiasm for J/70 racing this summer is augmented by the combination of the New York YC Invitational Cup Qualifiers and the first J/70 World Championships being held by the New York YC at its beautiful Harbour Court facilities. The J/97 is the "sleeper", a fun easy-to-sail offshore cruiser-racer the family can sail fast & competitively.

For boat buyers there are also three more good reasons to attend this Jamestown show:
  1. No Sales Tax on Boats! Rhode Island Has No Sales Tax on Boats & Marine Services. Also, No Property Tax on Boats! Buy it here, keep it here.
  2. Free Parking- Jamestown has ample free parking available.
  3. Free Admission- your entire family and all friends can enjoy your passion for boating for free!  It’s a great way to introduce them to the sailing lifestyle. Stroll the waterfront, enjoy the activities and climb aboard the boats with your family all at no cost.
After the boat show, the J/97 will be in the water for a few weeks in Newport Harbor and will be available for demonstration sails. Please contact Tim Kohl at East Coast Yacht Sales- cell# 203-233-9709 or email–   For more Jamestown Boat Show information
