About the San Francisco Boat Show
Welcome to the Progressive® Insurance San Francisco Boat Show®
Welcome to the Water!
On behalf of the entire NMMA Show Team, the team of AT&T Park and the exhibitors, we are happy to welcome you to the second annual Progressive® San Francisco Boat Show®, northern California’s only complete boat show! Whether you’ve been yearning for a yacht, coveting a family cruiser or anxious to dive into the exciting and healthy world of paddle sports, now is the time to make that dream a reality.
This year's show features an expanded selection of boats for every lifestyle and activity diplayed both on land and in water, and dozens of booths showcasing the newest nautical gear, gadgets and accessories, there’s no better place to buy! Take the free Cable Car Shuttle for easy and comfortable transportation between Pier 48 and McCovey Cove.
Not in the market to buy a boat? The Show is the perfect place to sample the boating lifestyle. Head to Try It Cove to test drive kayaks, stand up paddleboards, and other water sports. Take a sailing lesson without leaving dry land aboard aboard the Sailing Simulator, or test your boating skills on the United States Power Squadrons® Boating Skills Virtual Trainer.
If you currently own a boat you won't want to miss the free boat and motor maintenance seminars at Fred’s Shed Interactive Learning Center.
Our seminar program is loaded with educational and entertaining programs hosted by experts who will share practical advice, expert opinions and information on a wide variety of topics, including sail and power, anchoring, green boating, insurance and finance, sportfishing in the Bay Area and more. If you’re really want to kick your boating skills up a notch, take an on-water workshop for practical training at the helm. Discover Boating’s Hands-On Skills Training offers a number of powerboating and sailing workshops at the show, taught by certified professional instructors.
When you are ready for a break from shopping the Show, visit the food alcoves at AT&T Park next to the entrance
to McCovey Cove and check out the selection of food, including AT&T Park’s famous garlic fries, hot dogs, popcorn and more. Grab a bite to eat at the gourmet food trucks or quench your thirst at the full bar indoors at Pier 48.
Enjoy beautiful San Francisco and your time at the Show. We hope you’ll agree – life is better on a boat!
