Essex show returns for a third year
The Spring Boat Show returns April 27-29 to the Brewer Dauntless Marina on the Connecticut River waterfront in Essex, Conn. “The small boutique format provides for very personalized attention while viewing boats,” says Douglas Domenie, vice president and general manager of Brewer Dauntless Shipyard.
