As one of the most iconic spots on the Gulf Coast, The Wharf in Orange Beach is known for many things. The Ferris wheel, concerts by the best artists in the country, shopping, and dining on Main Street, Blue Marlin tournaments, and a fun family destination for both locals and beach visitors.

But for those who love boats, boating, fishing, and living the 'coastal lifestyle,' it's also has become known for something else over the past decade. The Wharf Boat and Yacht Show is the Southeast's premier boat show.

The Wharf is transformed into the 'Boating Epicenter' of the Gulf Coast each March. The region's top dealers, representing the country's best brands, bring over 800 boats totaling more than $100 million of marine inventory to Orange Beach.

This year's show, which takes place March 15-17, will feature 140 sportfishing yachts, cruisers, and center consoles in wet slips at The Wharf Marina. In addition, another 700 trailerable fishing boats, pontoons, wake boats, and personal watercraft will be displayed throughout The Wharf's property.

Alongside all that marine inventory are more than 100 exhibitors showcasing the latest and hottest trends in marine accessories, electronics, motors, and the best offerings to the coastal lifestyle.

With a proven track record of annually producing more than $20 Million in boat sales during the show weekend, The Wharf Boat and Yacht Show provides a win-win-win environment for buyers, dealers, and exhibitors.

Boat shows take place for one reason: to sell boats, lots and lots of boats, and marine products. Boat and engine manufacturers, dealers, and marine exhibitors collectively harness the buying power of boat show attendees.

These sellers know it's a buyer's market at The Wharf Boat & Yacht Show. With so much competition all in one place, it allows potential buyers to compare models, dealers, and deals side-by-side exclusively at a once-a-year event. This drives special pricing and incentives, known as 'boat show pricing,' and it's also why the year's best incentives and deepest discounts end when the show closes.

The Wharf Boat and Yacht Show is also a great way to spend a day or two enjoying not just the show but fishing seminars, kids' art classes, live music, food, cocktails, and luxury vehicles, all at the only venue capable of hosting such a weekend, The Wharf in Orange Beach.
