Jersey Boat Sale & Expo Returns To Firstenergy Park On Sept. 25 - The Fisherman

Jersey Boat Sale & Expo Returns To Firstenergy Park On Sept. 25

The Jersey Shore Boat Sale & Expo will happily be cruising into FirstEnergy Park, Home of the Lakewood BlueClaws from September 25th through the 27th.  This popular annual event, which began in 2009, is produced by the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey (MTA/NJ) and is a highlight of the fall boating season.

The event will include an outstanding array of the industry’s top selling brands in an entirely outdoors area, offering a safe and comfortable way for consumers to shop and board new boats including brand new 2021 models with some of the best end-of-season deals around.  The boats are spread out across the expansive parking lots of FirstEnergy Park allowing for safe, social distancing while you shop for your next boat!

Over 20 of the top New Jersey dealers in attendance will offer an expansive selection of brand new, just introduced 2021 models.  For those that have been shopping around this season, you know that new boats have been a little harder to come by. You will not want to miss this opportunity to purchase your new boat now before it is gone.  And unlike any other boat show around, there will also be a fleet of well-cared for, previously owned boats that will be displayed in a separate area, an ideal option for the budget minded boating family or first-time boat buyer.

Show attendees will get to climb aboard some of the top brands including Blackfin, Boston Whaler, Cape Horn, Carolina Skiff, Century, Edgewater, Grady-White, Jones Brothers, Key West, Mako, Maritime, Nautic Star, North Coast, Parker, Ranger, Regulator, Robalo, Sea Chaser, Seaborn, SeaFox, Seahunt, SeaPro, Sportsman, Steigercraft, Stingray, Sundance, Tidewater, Wellcraft, and more.

“With all that has been going on this past year, we are thrilled to be able to offer people a chance to get out and do something that is safe, fun and enjoyable,” stated MTA/NJ President Ed McCarthy.  “The Jersey Shore Boat Sale & Expo is so unique in that it is not only affordable but very easy to get to and offers hundreds of boats of every size, shape, design and power to fit all the different boating lifestyles.  If you love boating and you love the water, this is an event that is not to be missed.”

The cost to attend is only $5 per person with children under 12 admitted for free when accompanied by an adult.  Parking is free.  Contact-less tickets can be purchased online at for an easy, contact-less entry into the show.  Be sure to stop by The Fisherman’s table under the tent to get your new or renewed subscription as well.

The MTA/NJ will be following the State of New Jersey guidelines and implementing additional measures to ensure the safety of everyone at the show. Masks will be required in areas where visitors are not able to social distance, hand sanitizing stations will be available all throughout the show, additional signage will be placed throughout the show and increased cleaning and sanitizing will be conducted during the event.

Show hours are Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.  For more information contact MTA/NJ at 732-292-1051.  Proceeds from the event go towards MTA/NJ’s ongoing efforts to promote, advance, and protect the recreational boating industry in New Jersey.
