LYMANS COMING HOME!

A special 90th Anniversary Celebration of Lake Erie’s most famous boat, the Lyman, originally constructed across from the boat show in Sandusky, Ohio. See a special Lyman Boat Works historical museum display, view a Lyman from each of the 9 decades, and enjoy more Lymans displayed on land and in-water, some even offering boat rides!

Meet Tom Koroknay, aka Doc Lyman, the preeminent Lyman historian. He’ll be displaying artifacts from the original Lyman Boat Works, including items from the factory never seen before. The celebration will also include participation from Ramsey Brothers Restorations, the Lake Erie Lyman Group, beverages from the Lyman Boat Beer Works, and a wide selection of Lyman branded clothing and products in the Lyman Life display.

TOLEDO ANTIQUE & CLASSIC BOAT SHOW

It will be a burst of nostalgia when you visit the 13th annual “Toledo Antique and Classic Boat Show,” being staged for the first time inside the Cedar Point Boat Show. As a companion attraction to the “Lymans Coming Home” celebration, this will boast an outstanding collection of classic watercraft from builders whose brands are synonymous with America’s pleasure boating history.

You’ll get to meet and talk with classic boat owners who will proudly share their story and excitement of owning one of these timeless classics; it’s their opportunity to spread the mission of classic boating to the thousands of boaters who visit Cedar Point for the in-water boat show each year. Classic and Lyman owners can register to participate below.

YAMAHA IN-WATER DEMO TOUR

The unique Yamaha Outboards “In-Water Demo Tour” has been added, another exciting first-time attraction for this year. This special event is built around Yamaha’s unique 40-foot display trailer featuring the outboard maker’s new 5.7 liter, V8 XTO Offshore performance engine rated at 425 horsepower, as well as Yamaha’s newest Helm Master Systems.

The XTO Offshore is more than an outboard. It’s an integrated power system with insightful engineering and industry-first technology like an electric steering system. But there’s much more.

Yamaha’s newest Helm Master system has “SetPoint” modes that make fine tuning your position while in “StayPoint”, “FishPoint” and “DriftPoint” by just touching the joystick. And now there’s even a new “Pattern Shift” for more precise operation.

Included in the “In-Water Demo Tour” are two boats ready for visitor demonstration rides – a 28’ Regulator CC with twin 300 Yamahas a 26’ Edgewater CC powered by twin 250’s

On Thursday and Friday, visitors can register at the Yamaha exhibit to win a Yeti Cooler. Saturday’s attendees could win a Yamaha PW3028 Power Washer, while on Sunday show goers can register for a Yamaha EF1000iS portable generator.

Yamaha is our newest presenting sponsor of this 47th Anniversary show at Cedar Point.

WATER SPORTS TOYS CENTER

From boardshorts to live wakesurfing demonstrations, a first-ever Water Sports Toys Center has been added to this year’s reinvented Progressive Cedar Point Boat Show that is getting a host of new features and attractions.

It’s believed to be the first boat show in the nation to offer wakesurfing demonstrations – not on any stage but actually on the water! But that’s just one of the attractions included in the new Toys Center. This special area will boast a wide variety of other water sports items, like: towable tubes, water skis, wakeboards, surfboards, vests, a variety of accessories and more, all being brought to the show by Akron’s popular Sun Valley Sports. But there’s even more!

 The Toy Center will also feature Hobie kayaks and Eclypse SUPs. And, there will be Hobie kayaks at dockside and available for show visitors climb into and paddle around in the Water Sports Lagoon. Moreover, in conjunction with the Sun Valley Sports exhibit, Akron’s Buckeye Sports Center will display a selection of wake boats and actually have two in the water to be used for the wakesurfing and wakeboarding activities.

Not familiar with Wakesurfing? It’s the hotest new water sport in which a rider using a board, specifically designed for wakes, trails behind a boat. After getting up on the wake using a tow rope, the surfer drops it and rides the steep face below the wave’s peak just as in wave surfing. But this wave is even better – it’s endless!
