The Annapolis Spring Sailboat show is widely known to be the celebratory kickoff of the sailing season on the Chesapeake and the greater Mid-Atlantic region. Bringing together a wide selection of new and brokerage sailboats ranging from small day boats to large ocean-crossing cruisers, the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show is sure to offer something for everyone.

Shop the latest marine equipment, electronics, clothing, and boating accessories at more than one hundred on-land nautical exhibits, or enjoy the day strolling through historic downtown Annapolis. Then stop by to visit the David Walters Yachts Team on the docks to see our latest showcase of new and brokerage vessels.


On Display on D-Dock:
NEW Italia Yachts 14.98

Image 1682:

A boat built for the most demanding sailors, who love racing and appreciate details and finishing at the highest level in both the interiors and the exteriors, in line with the brand's style: simple, functional and versatile for cruising or racing. The IY 14.98 is the first true move forward towards a different customer.  

Bellissima Feeling at home, in a comfortable and unique atmosphere. This is the feeling you will feel getting onboard an IY 14.98. Its size makes it ideal for long cruises and that is why the interiors are produced with special woods and textiles, with ample and conformable spaces, designed with easy-living in mind. Special features like a wine cellar, or high cabinets. Lighting is ward, suffused, continuous with a floor wash effect that is never invasive.

Fuoriserie The IY 14.98 amplifies the Fuoriserie line, aiming high, with a sports boat ideal for grand-prix IRC and ORC. The deck layout includes six winches: two on the deckhouse, two primary trimming ones and two for the mainsail fine tuning in racing configuration. The crew can move easily in the cockpit, thanks to two ample passages, the rod rigging, the spinnaker equipment, the hydraulic pump in the back, the high-efficiency mast profile with an increased boom to optimize its surface downwind and the moulded anti-skid contribute to the strong racing attitude of this new model.

Custom Antigua 60 SOOLAIMON

Image 1683:

SOOLAIMON is an extraordinary luxury cruising yacht with a robust and sea-kindly shoal draft hull and an exquisite custom 3-stateroom varnished teak interior.  Configured and equipped for offshore cruising, few boats can measure up to the comfort and luxury of SOOLAIMON. Features include automated sail handling, the Leisure Furl in-boom mainsail furling, self-tacking staysail, oversized systems, expansive side decks with direct walk-thru access to the large center cockpit, and excellent walk-thru access to the immense center cockpit visibility from the helm enable this yacht to be very easily managed by a cruising couple.

With her shoal draft of 5’ 8” and an intercoastal waterway friendly bridge clearance of 64’, SOOLAIMON can be sailed into anchorages and marinas not otherwise available to many yachts over 50’. This is the ideal sailing yacht for a couple or family with a desire for limitless cruising without sacrificing the comforts of home.

Oyster 56 Deck Saloon AMBROSIA

AMBROSIA is a beautiful, 2006 Oyster 56 Deck Salon.  She has been professional maintained since new.  Her Awlgripped Carinthia Blue topsides, low hours and recent upgrades make her a refreshing and outstanding offering. Her cutter rig and in-mast furling provide easy handling and comfortable cruising. Further, with control lines within easy reach of the helmsman, AMBROSIA is ideally set up for simple and safe shorthanded sailing.

Below decks, AMBROSIA has the preferred varnished-cherry joinery with gloss-varnished teak soles, plus the acclaimed stowage and well-appointed accommodations for which the Oyster 56’s are well known and that few other boat of her size provide. In short, she’s a ‘must see’ boat for anyone looking for the best of Oyster 56’s.
