The BCYBA’s annual boat show is moving to Sidney. We outgrew our space and now we’ve outgrown our name! In 2018 the BCYBA boat show will be renamed the BC Boat Show and we are pleased to announce that the Mill Bay Marine Group will be our presenting sponsor. Taking place on May 3-6, 2018, the 2018 BC Boat Show will be bigger and better than ever. The new venue at Port Sidney Marina will offer expanded opportunities for vendors and exhibitors, as well as better access and parking to accommodate our growing audience.
The BC Boat Show is hosted by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA) and has grown to become the largest in-the-water boat show on the west coast. The show is an opportunity for yacht brokers to display and sell boats for sale to a wide audience who can go on board all of the boats and discuss the many features with knowledgeable and professionally certified brokers. There are usually around 200 boats of all sizes in the water as well as many marine related business displays featuring everything from boat yard services, hardware, equipment, navigation electronics, clothing, etc. People attending the show over its four-day run can expect to spend many delightful hours touring the boats of their dreams, seeing the latest yachts both new and used, and witnessing many interesting demonstrations. Sales often occur right at the show, as the brokers are usually prepared to offer special pricing for an at-the-show sale.
Everyone is welcome and children are encouraged to attend with their parents.
