Take the Wheel is a great opportunity to demo sailboats, compare one against the other, fast track your boating buying knowledge, and narrow the search for your new boat.

If you want to take the helm before Annapolis Boat Show we can arrange that! Click below to make an appointment and we will arrange a private tour with a dealer before you take the helm. And of course, if you buy a new Jeanneau, the sail is on us!


Take the Wheel is an on-and-off water learning experience.  The morning session covers sailboat design, how to maximize your boating pleasure, and budget. In the afternoon you’ll sail aboard your choice of two out of eight yachts and have a chance to get a stem to stern look with wind in the sails.  Find the best boat for your personal sailing needs. Demo various sizes and styles of sailboats. Experts will be on board to answer your specific questions.

Regardless of whether you plan to day sail on the Chesapeake Bay, cruise close to home, or to fulfill a dream to sail off into the sunset, Take the Wheel is a worthy launch site.
