Oriental Boat Show 2024

We here at Nautical Wheelers are excited to invite you to join us for the annual Oriental In Water Boat Show and Nautical Flea Market. This event will be held April 12th-14th. This event will be held at the Oriental Marina and Inn. 
Come out and experience The Best Small-Town Boat Show in America, with so many fantastic vendors, and obviously, to see all the boats! The team at Nautical Wheelers is excited to be running a booth where we will be joined by the rice farmers from Tidewater Grain Company. Tidewater Grain Company grows their Carolina Gold Rice just a few miles down the road from Nautical Wheelers and the boat show itself! 
Of course, we can't let the guys at the show have all the fun! In store we will have raffles, show special sales, and more. Stop by our booth at the show and then come see the team in store, it's going to be a great weekend!
Our grand prize will be a pair of Olukai shoes (winner's choice), so you don't want to miss out!
