ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- The annual boat shows in Annapolis will feature a new event this year: a showing of used boats.

Organizers on Thursday announced a first-of-its-kind Annapolis Brokerage Show.

It will take place Oct. 3-6 at the same time as the United States Power Boat Show. The two shows will offer buses and water taxes to take attendees between the two events.

The brokerage show will promote the sale of previously owned boats of all kinds. They will be available to the public for immediate sale.

The 44th Annual United States Sailboat Show will take place a week later, with new sailboats for sale.

U.S. Yacht Shows Inc. hosts the shows on consecutive weekends annually with more than 250 sailboats and more than 300 power boats.
