ROCKLAND — The Maine Boat & Home show will be held Aug. 13 to 15 on the waterfront in Rockland.

The show is the largest of its kind north of Newport, R.I.

The Boat & Home show presents a wide range of boats, ranging from large to small, luxurious and down-to-earth, power and sail, displayed both on land and in the water.

The show also boasts a plethora of activities for children and adults. As well as a variety of art, fine furniture, clothing, jewelry, live music, Marine gear and food, most of which will be in the many exhibits around the grounds.

Admission is $15 for adults and are available at the gates and online. Children under 12 receive free admission.

The show is held at Rockland’s Harbor Park.

The powerboat section will cover a wide variety of powerboats, from dayboats to cruisers, wood to fiberglass and large to small.

The Hinckley Company will display one of its newer models of its jet-driven yachts. Back Cove Yachts will have one of its highly sought after 34-foot, outboard-powered models. Maine Electric Boat will offer hands-on test rides aboard one of its two electric powered boats.

The Scandinavian influence will be evident in both the Axopar, displayed by East Coast Yacht Sales and the Nimbus, shown by Yachting Solutions. These two designs represent Finnish thinking in outboard luxury dayboats and cruisers. A wide range of New England workboat-inspired boats will be shown by Eastern Boats.

On land, Salty Boats of Maine will showcase its line of small outboard boats. Reward Boats will display its motorcycle inspired runabout. Jeff’s Marine has both a Salty 14 and a Cape 15, a kind of utility boat. Gray & Gray Yachts will display a classic Cranberry Island launch.

For those who like to use their own muscles to propel themselves, Maine Sport Outfitters will offer a wide range of kayaks, and paddle boards that can be tried out on the water.

There will also be an all-new ocean racing shell from Next Boatworks, that is designed for rowing events that will be added to the next Olympic games. You can also try your skill on a rowing machine with Megunticook Rowing.

A new Morris Yacht will be on display. For those looking for a smaller size, the Bridges Point one design will also be on the docks.

For more classics, the public can check out the Rhodes Reliant, a yawl that commemorates the classic sailing era.

On land, the Classic Boat Shop will show its fast and nimble day sailor, the Chuck Paine-designed Pisces 26.

This year, along with many boats for sale, the event will host three guests on the Icon Dock. On Friday, Aug. 13, visitors can view a Penbay Pilot Boat, used to take pilots out to tankers transiting Penobscot and Frenchman Bays. Saturday, Aug. 14, will host the 100th birthday of the schooner Bowdoin, which was built in 1921 for Arctic exploration.

The Bowdoin, now a sail training vessel for the Maine Maritime Academy, is the official vessel of Maine. Finally, Sunday, Aug. 15, the dock will host Maine’s most iconic vessels, the lobster boat.
