History of Boats & Bathing Suits

As the boats got bigger and more advanced, the bathing suits got smaller and more fashionable! The evolution of swimwear from the 1800s to present day offers Seattle Boat Show attendees visual markers of time corresponding with the evolution of boating here in the Pacific Northwest. As preferred swimwear fashions changed, remarkable things were happening for boating here in the Pacific Northwest. Changes in designs and propulsion, inaugural events of now iconic boating traditions, the invention of the waterski, and more! This exhibit will take you back in time and possibly even inspire next summer’s swimsuit selection! Don’t miss our LIVE models on Friday, January 24th during Uncorked.
