Trawler Fest and The Children’s Guild are collaborating this year to give participants two exciting venues to enjoy.
Trawler Fest, a celebration for the cruising community, brings together the latest products and services specific to the trawler market, educational seminars that focus on boating skills, and the opportunity to go aboard a wide variety of trawlers and cruising powerboats. Admission to the boat show is $15 per person and several seminar packages are available and range from $50 to $380.
