Mark your calendar for Feb. 25-27 and head to Gainesville Marina and Boat Sales for its Second Annual North Georgia Boat And RV Show Extravaganza. For three days, the marina will bring together boat and RV/camper dealers to showcase the latest in on-the-water and off-the-water recreation.

“Our show last spring was well received and very well attended,” said Philip Burton, managing partner of Gainesville Marina. “This year, in addition to our own lines of boats, other manufacturers will be joining us for the show.”

The event will include tritoons, pontoons, runabouts, bass boats, wakeboard boats, inboards and outboards from a variety of manufacturers.

Recreational vehicles range from pop-up campers and travel trailers to 5th wheels and motor homes.

Music and entertainment, plus food trucks and fun activities, round out the weekend’s happenings.

Gainesville Marina’s boat lines include Berkshire pontoons and tritoons, as well as Stingray runabouts, center consoles and deck boats. Its newest line, Viaggio pontoons, will also be on display.

“Our visitors can expect to see the newest boats and RVs for the coming season,” Burton said. “And we’ll have another dozen or so marine-related vendors and boating organizations on hand to answer questions and help people get ready for the 2022 boating and recreation season.”
