Lake Lanier Boat Show logo - dark blue rectangle with white and light blue wording.The Lake Lanier Boat Show, presented by the Marine Trade Association of Metro Atlanta, has already become a semiannual tradition on Lake Lanier. Happening each spring and fall – this year the weekend of Sept. 29-Oct. 1 – the show brings together local boat dealers and marine-related businesses for three days. Based at Margaritaville at Lanier Islands, it was set for success right out of the gate in October 2022.

“Each time we present this show, we find more ways to make it better for our customers, our dealers and the community,” said Tabor Reins, president of the Marine Trade Association of Metro Atlanta. “Not only are we presenting our 2023 and 2024 models, we’re showcasing them where people will enjoy them the most – right here on the water and on the shores of Lake Lanier.”

The show averages 50 different brands, from run-abouts, pontoons and wake boats to houseboats, center consoles and multihulls from more than 15 local dealers. A vendors village, family and children’s activities and fireworks create a casual atmosphere for people to view more than 250 boats and talk with dealers.

“Our goal is to provide the best boat-buying experience and encourage a love of recreation and family fun on the water,” Reins said. “Come out and see what we’re all about.”
