Probably one of the friendliest on-water Boat Shows in the World, Annapolis hosted a grand and upbeat event with more yachts and catamarans in the docks than ever before.
Barton Sales Manager Christian Brewer flew out to join the Ocean Accessories team lead by Jeff Cox supported this year by Linda Frink, Jim Wallis and Wade Dale. Based in Guilford Connecticut, Ocean Accessories manage sales and warehousing for Barton in the USA.
Successful meetings were held with our key Distributors and Dealers CWR Electronics, Bacon Sails & Sail Care and we were also able to meet up with key editorial staff to give them a taster of the new wood block range.
Barton Boomstruts were again evident in the dock and at the entrance to the show where visitors had the chance to win a Beneteau 22, kitted out for sail training and fitted as standard with the Barton Boomstrut. The Boomstrut does away with the need for a topping lift and prevents the boom from drooping into the cockpit.
