Four Days of Unique Experiences


We are so grateful to our friends in Michigan for lending us this beautiful display which will be a great compliment to our Lyman Museum and Antique Boats


There is so much nostalgia around Twiggy and the boat show.  At the 2019 Cleveland Boat Show not only was Twiggy on the front page of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, but we heard so many of our attendees talk about how their own parents or grandparents brought them to the show to see Twiggy


It’s the most telling story of boatbuilding on the Great Lakes. Visitors to the boat show will get a genuine taste of this remarkable story. To recall the over 9 decades that Lymans were being created by craftsmen, show attendees will enjoy a special Lyman Boat Works Historical Museum display encompassing more than 3,000 square feet of walk-thru displays.


You’ll take the tiller, feel the boat heeling, tack through the wind and sense that warm summer breeze on your face when you climb aboard one of the Sailing Simulators. They are prime features in this year’s Sailing Center. But this redesigned area will include much more, like exhibits from sailboat dealers, sailmakers, sailing schools and related equipment displays. Plus, it’s a chance to talk to sailing experts, explore the latest fractional ownership options and explore all the great opportunities for sailing on Lake Erie and inland Ohio lakes.
