About the Show

Welcome to the Progressive® Insurance San Francisco 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 with boats for sale in addition to dozens of booths showcasing the newest nautical gear, gadgets and accessories.

Not in the market to buy a boat? The boat show is the perfect place to get your feet wet in the boating lifestyle with activities for all ages. Try It Cove provides freeopportunities to test your skills kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding and more watersports! If you’re not ready to leave dry land, experience how a boat reacts to wind and waves aboard the Sailing Simulator while the little skippers create nautical works of art in the Kid’s Zone

If you currently own a boat and love DIY-projects, don’t miss Fred’s Shed Interactive
Learning Center, where complimentary DIY clinics on boat maintenance and repair are offered hourly. 

The boat show’s seminar program is loaded with educational and enlightening programs hosted by experts and adventurers who know the waters and will share practical advice, expert opinions and tales from the high seas. The schedule covers a variety of topics. If you’re ready to kick your boating skills up a notch, take to the water through Discover Boating’s Hands-On Skills Training, featuring 60-minute to three-hour on-water clinics taught by professional ASA-skippers.

When you are ready for a break from shopping the boat show or looking for a perfect
place to catch the sunset, visit the concessions indoor and outdoor at the venue.

Please share with us your boating experiences on facebook, Twitter or Instagram #SFBoatShow. Welcome to the Water!
