Jan 30, 2024 - A boat show can be defined as an event that is organized around the presentation of recreational boats and yachts. Such exhibitions are periodic and take place throughout the world in areas central to boating activities. In addition to boat displays, visitors will find a complete array of boating equipment, accessories and electronics. Boat show events are typically accompanied by family oriented entertainment, educational and social activities.

Display Settings

Show boats may be displayed on the water, in a parking area or within an exhibition hall depending on the locale. Kiosks can be located indoors and/or outdoors in tents. Displays may also be spread out over multiple locations including moorage slips, docks, piers and anchorages.

Promoters - Sponsors

Boat shows may be organized, sponsored and promoted in various ways. These may include chambers of commerce, manufacturers, associations, boat dealers, yacht brokers, associations, and other boating related enterprises.

Visitor Accommodations

Visitor accommodations for boat shows can usually be made in advance by contacting the boat show administrators online. These include advance tickets, hotel bookings, parking directions and information about nearby attractions. Shuttle transportation is also made available among remote display locations.


Boat Shows are the center of gravity for boating enthusiasts seeking special deals on a new boat or the latest in boating equipment. They are also great entertainment for individuals and families who just enjoy being near the water.
