EXPECT LUXURY, POWER AT CIC SHOW
 

Motor yachts, fishing machines, sailboats, pontoons and a lot more will be dockside for the weekend when the exclusive Catawba Island Club opens its marina to the public for the 15th annual Progressive Insurance Catawba Island Boat Show, April 26-28.

The top dealers from northern Ohio will be showcasing more than 125 of their latest models with an emphasis on boats that weren’t displayed at the Cleveland show last January. In fact, many boats were simply too large to transport there in winter.

For example, the all-new Azimut Atlantis 51 Motor Yacht will get its premiere showing at CIC. Displayed by MarineMax, the yacht boasts three staterooms, two lavatories and a large galley below while topside features a large space for entertaining. With Volvo IPS power, it will cruise and 30 knots and top out at 35.

Similarly, speed and performance will be evident throughout the show across the wide range of boats. Good examples will be found in the Catawba Moorings display. The triple-300hp Yamaha outboards pushing a Regulator 34 Center Console will lead other Regulator models along with World Cats and Key West boats.

Another totally new boat designed specifically to be powered by twin Yamaha 350’s outboards will be unveiled by South Shore Marine. It’s a new Back Cove 340, and it will be joined by an even more luxurious Back Cove 41 featuring twin staterooms, powerful 725hp Volvo diesels and an EZ dock system. South Shore will also be showing models from Pursuit, Chris Craft, Grady White and Regal.

If overall exhibit size is measured, the hands down winner will be Clemons Boats with a fleet of 20 boats. Topping the list will be the premiere showing of Boston Whaler’s all-new 380 Outrage alongside the all-new Whaler 350 Realm. Talk about power – both boats will boast triple Mercury 350hp Verados and both have joystick piloting. They’ll be joined in the show by 10 more Whalers, along with a pair of Albemarles, 5 Nautic Stars and even the new Bennington 25SSBXP pontoon. 

More luxury in the latest in cruisers and motor yachts will dock at CIC from other exhibitors. Like the collection of models from Skipper Bud’s. The flagship will be the Cruisers Yachts 54 Fly that features expansive overnight quarters and lots of entertainment space up on the flybridge. She’ll be accompanied by the Cruisers Cantius 42, Beneteau’s luxurious Gran Turismo 48 and 35 Swift Trawler, all docked alongside models from Tiara, Four Winns and Scout.  

Boaters who appreciate the classic styling found in MJM Yachts will be greeted by two models, the MJM 50Z (actually a 55 footer) accompanied by the MJM 35Z. They’ll be shown by Moes Marine. Meanwhile, the latest in contemporary design will be evident dockside in Formula Boats being displayed by Marine Tech Concepts and motor yachts and cruisers from Sea Ray and Galeon displayed by MarineMax.

CIC is located on the northwest side of the Catawba peninsula, off Northwest Catawba Road. Admission and parking are free. For complete details, visit: www.catawbaislandboatshow.com
