The Waterway Guide Flagship Adonia is en route from Urbanna, VA to Annapolis, MD to participate in the United States Powerboat and Sailboat Shows there. Adonia is Captained on this 11-hour journey by Ed Tillett, Editor in Chief, Waterway Guide Media.

The United States Power Show runs Oct. 3-6, and the  United States Sailboat Show is from October 10-14 at Booth A25 for both shows. As always, our Waterway Guide team of experts will be on hand at both shows, as will the Waterway Guide Flagship Adonia.

“Waterway Guide is so pleased to have a classic American yacht built by John Trumpy & Sons. It was built the same year Waterway Guide was founded,” Tillett said. “We are proud to participate in these events and invite everyone to come by and say hello.”

Waterway Guide was founded in 1947, the same year that Adonia was launched. The vessel was renovated most recently by Stingray Point Boat Works in Deltaville, VA.

Adonia and her captain made an overnight stop in Reedville, VA at Reedville Marina and Crazy Crab Restaurant. The yacht will be spending the next several weeks at the Maryland Yacht Club.

Trumpy yachts were built in Annapolis 1947-1973. The City of Annapolis is very proud of the connection it has to one of America’s preeminent designers and builders of luxury vessels and the historical significance of the shipyard to the city.
