The Portland Boat Show is proud to announce the addition of what may be the coolest boat at any boat show in the country…The Waterwoody! At 33’ long this incredibly detailed and handcrafted wood boat defies description and categorization. It’s truly singularly unique and it’s coming to the Portland Boat Show! Like something out of a Jules Verne classic this stunningly beautiful boat is breathtaking in its design, creativity and beauty. This boat has to be seen to be believed.
Kingfisher 34 GFX:
Kingfisher’s 34 GFX is making its Portland debut! 34’ long with a 10’ beam this offshore-style heavy-gauge all-welded aluminum boat is powered by twin Mercury 300 hp V8 outboards. The package coming to the show is loaded and in the Stevens Marine display.
World’s Largest Display of Heavy-Gauge Welded Aluminum Boats:
You won’t find more welded aluminum boats anywhere on the planet than at this show. The Northwest is home to these remarkable boats and it shows at the Portland Boat Show. If you’re in the market for a heavy gauge welded aluminum boat, there’s no better place to be than here.
You can see Carver’s C36 and C40 models at the Northwest Boat Center display. Long known for their exceptional ride, attention to detail and finish, these Carvers boast three-levels and dozens of Carver comfort touches.
Alumaweld Stryker X Debut:
Alumaweld is unveiling their all-new Stryker X 202 and 222. This big-water boat features an 18 degree bottom vee, offshore outboard bracket, all-new gunnel and windshield design, 3-compartment under-console storage, higher sides and much more! It’s available in 20’ and 22’ lengths and is available through Stevens Marine.
Emerson and Jacob will be at the show at the Schooner Creek Boat Works booth. “Emerson” is the amazing 28’ row boat, built by Schooner Creek that was showcased at the Portland Boat Show two years ago. “Jacob” is the man that rowed this boat from Neah Bay, Washington to Australia! 7,145 miles! The longest solo, unsupported (aka by himself), ocean row.
Duffy’s Now For Sale:
The Duffy is now for sale! Portland Electric Boat Company not only rents Duffy electric boats but is now retailing them. They’re bringing a 22’ model to the show. They’ll run up to 8 hours on a single charge and can be fully charged overnight. “As easy as driving a golf cart”, these unique, quiet, 100% no-emission boats are an ideal fit for use in and around the Portland area and can be trailered if the proud owner wants to show it off elsewhere.
A Breaker Breakthrough:
Several stretches of Oregon’s coast were explored by the venerable dory. These unique boats launch from the beach and land on the beach to be loaded on a trailer. You’ll find an entire boating community of these boats in Pacific City. Breaker Dory continues this uniquely Oregon tradition with their line of boats, that are, of course, made in Oregon. Check out the 21’3” state-of-the-art model that will be at the show. Built entirely out of composite materials without the use of any wood, this boat features a double layered Kevlar (used in bullet proof vests) bottom, a sealed air chamber in the bottom for flotation, more flotation built into the sides, a 150 Evinrude E-Tech outboard for power and more! The dory that’s coming to the show reflects the highest standards of construction and technology and is “best in class” in every way.
New Ranger R25:
Ranger Tugs will be debuting their new R25 and showing their popular R23, R27 and R29 models. The new R25 features Ranger Tug’s distinctive lines and planing hull with an enclosed cabin, sleeping area, head, galley and lots of room in a trailerable outboard package. These are beautifully detailed, finished and performing boats tailored to northwest fishing and open water boating.
An Antares First!
The 23’ Antares will be making its first Northwest appearance at the Portland Boat Show in the Royal Marine display. Antares has done a brilliant job of packing a lot of boat into a 23’ space.
