April 30 – May 3, 2020 Port Sidney Marina
Celebrating 30 years in 2020, the BC Boat Show has grown to become the largest in-the-water boat show on the west coast. Proudly hosted by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA), the show is an opportunity for people to tour the boats of their dreams, explore the latest yachts – both new and used – and delight in many fascinating demonstrations at beautiful Port Sidney Marina. 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. Audience members can discuss the many features of the boats on display with knowledgeable and professionally certified yacht brokers. 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.
