On now: The third annual in-water springtime show, the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show April 25-27, will feature more than 80 new and previously-owned sailboats of all types and sizes including catamarans, mono hulls, racing boats, inflatables, and day sailors - and there might be still time to get to Cruisers University if you hurry...

The show will feature the North American premier of the Bavaria Cruiser 33 from Bavaria Yachts, which has already sold nearly 300 hulls. The show will also debut the Farr 280 One Design, the newest grand prix-racing sailboat at 30 feet and designed for a crew of five. The brand new Legacy Catamaran, the 2014 Gemini Legacy 35, will also launch at the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show.
