Crystal Coast Boat Show lands in Morehead City

In keeping with tradition, the 2019 Boat Show features new and used boats, a variety of marine products and services, outdoor gear, fishing tackle, brokers and resource conservation groups. The weekend is also home to the 46th Annual Morehead City Chapter Antique Automobile Club of America car show on Saturday and the Carteret County Home Builder’s Association Cornhole Tournament on Sunday, both hosted in downtown Morehead City. We invite you to experience our beautiful beaches and waterfront first-hand by enjoying free sailboat rides from Sail Carteret at the 10th Street Beach downtown, steps away from the boat show.

Admission is free to the public and all events are hosted in beautiful downtown Morehead City, North Carolina.
Whether you’re in the market for a new boat, want to learn how to maintain your current boat, are looking to sail the coast or just enjoy the historic waterfront of Morehead City, the 2019 Crystal Coast Boat Show is the perfect event for you and your family!
