Vancouver International Boat Show 2018

17 Jan 2018  to 21 Jan 2018 1000h-2000h (Wed-Sat), 1000h-1700h (Sun)

Members $15 / Non-Members $15

The 56th annual Vancouver International Boat Show runs January 17-21, 2018, at two great locations – indoors at BC Place and a Floating Show at Granville Island Maritime Market and Marina.  Show hours are 10am – 8pm every day except Sunday (10am – 5pm).  The in-water venue is open daily from 10am – 5pm.

According to the producers, this is Western Canada’s premier boat show – BC’s largest showcase for the recreational boating industry and new 2017 products. In addition to displays from hundreds of marine suppliers, boating experts from around the world (including a number of BCA members) educate, inspire and entertain show attendees by sharing their experiences and expertise on everything from boating basics to spellbinding adventures.

BCA’s presence at the Boat Show includes a booth and an offshore-ready boat at Granville Island. In addition, a presentation about BCA and how the Association helps prepare cruisers for offshore will be given by BCA members, Tony Roberts and Karin Lengger, on Saturday (6:00pm) and Sunday (1:15pm).

Volunteering at the Boat Show provides approximately 75 BCA members with a great opportunity to share their passion for offshore cruising, talk about the benefits of BCA membership with like-minded boaters, and check out the latest in boats and boating-related accessories and services.

Be sure to stop by the booth and/or the offshore-proven “show boat,” Mayaluga, a Hans Christian 33, and say hello!
