As you read this, we’re moving in to the Raleigh Convention Center for the annual Raleigh Convention Center Boat Show held this Thursday through Sunday, February 6th through the 9th.  We’ve got an exciting lineup of Grady-White and Chris-Craft boats.

From the Freedom series, Grady-White’s line of dual console boats, we’ll have the 2014 Grady-White 192 Freedom, 2014 Grady-White 205 Freedom, 2014 Grady-White 225 Freedom, 2014 Grady-White 275 Freedom, 2014 Grady-White 335 Freedom.  From the Canyon and Fisherman series of center console boats we’ll have the 2014 Grady-White 257 Fisherman and the 2014 Grady-White 306 Canyon.  Also, for the first time, we’ll have the all-new 2014 Grady-White 251 Coastal Explorer.

The 251 Coastal Explorer is the first in a new series of boats.  The low hull side Coastal Explorer has all the fishing features you’d expect in a Grady, but it is loaded with neat features for those summer days at the island.  This boat is completely new and we’re excited to bring it to Wrightsville Beach and the Raleigh Convention Center Boat Show.

Atlantic Marine has been nicknamed by Chris-Craft executives as the “Catalina Kings!”  The Catalina series, an outboard center console line, provides the elegant design and superior fit, finish, and selection of materials that set these center console boats apart from the others.  In keeping with our nickname, we’ll have the 2014 Chris-Craft 26 Catalina and the 2014 Chris-Craft 29 Catalina on display.

Parking for the boat show is available in the underground parking deck and connects to the convention center via tunnel.  Enter the deck on West Lenoir Street between Salisbury and Fayetteville Streets; or, enter 24 West Lenoir Street, Raleigh in your GPS.  As you come down the escalators to the exhibit hall floor, you’ll see our Grady-White and Chris-Craft booths to the far right of the hall.  Look for the large triangle red, white, and blue Atlantic Marine sign hanging from the ceiling.
