Boat Show Calendar

Boat Show Calendar

Boat shows are a great opportunity to meet people and learn more about boating. Even if you’re not in the market for a new boat there are still a lot of things for you to get out of your visit to a boat show.

  • New Boats
    See what the latest trends are in the newest boats on the market. There is a lot of innovation on display at boat shows and it might inspire you to make modifications to your boat to improve performance or practicality. It’s also a good opportunity to get to know your local boat brokers so when you are ready you know where to go and who to talk to!
  • Products & Accessories
    There are a lot of vendors at boat shows which gives you an opportunity to get your hands on a lot of different items that your local marine stores don’t carry. Not only does this let you try before you buy but you can also talk face to face to the vendor and learn more about the product and how you can get the most out of it. Remember, a lot of people at boat shows are passionate about sailing and are happy to share their experiences!
  • Seminars & Training
    Boat shows are a great place to expand your horizons and learn something new. There are often seminars where people share their experiences or give their advice on a wide range of topics. Many fair weather shows also include hands-on experiences including learning to sail, or clinics on docking.
  • Boat Show Specials
    Whether you’re buying a new boat, new foul weather gear, or looking for your next sailing charter vacation there are always great deals to be found at boat shows!
ASA Certified
The American Sailing Association will be represented at the following boat shows by our local sailing schools. This is a good time to meet some of the instructors, sign up for your next ASA sailing course, or maybe even plan your next sailing charter vacation.
