Embrace the Waterfront Lifestyle at the Seattle Boat Show, Docked January 23 to February 1

That time of year is upon us again as the arrival of the Seattle Boat Show draws nearer! The largest boat show on the West Coast, with landlocked exhibits at CenturyLink Field and waterfront attractions at South Lake Union, features over 1,000 watercraft, enlightening seminars, and the latest in all things boating. 

This year, the event includes some exceptional prizes, including a pair of 2015 Seahawks season tickets, a one year membership with Seattle Boat Share, and a 7-night Mexican Cruise. In addition, there are a number of special events not to be missed as opening night goes "uncorked" with award-winning Washington wines from 5-9PM, January 26th is "Women's Day" with free admission, special seminars, and a reception for women, and January 30th brings craft beer night with "Snails and Ales" from 5-9PM. 

The coming of this fabulous event has us thinking about how much we truly cherish the waterfront lifestyle and the unique opportunities it provides. According to the Sotheby's International Realty Luxury Lifestyle Report, we are not alone in our love of the shores, as most affluent consumers say a waterfront property sits at the top of their list for future purchases. 

In addition, waterfront properties also comprise more lifestyle searches on sothebysrealty.com than any other type.
