About the Show

The Progressive® Insurance Tampa Boat Show® has become a must-attend event for every Tampa Bay boater. Whether you're an avid fisherman, wakeboard or ski enthusiast, sailor or Bay crusier the Tampa Boat Show has something for you.  As Tampa’s largest and longest-running boat show it's the best place to see and buy boats, gear and accessories for every boat enthusiast! From fishing to cruising to family fun there are boats for every lifestyle, activity and budget—see everything from luxury yachts to personal watercraft displayed both indoors on the floor of the Tampa Convention Center and in the water right outside the convention center.

What so impressive? If it's for boating, you’ll find it at the Progressive Insurance Tampa Boat show. Shop booths showcasing the latest in engines, marine electronics, accessories and fishing gear. And there’s no better time to buy! The 3-day event at the Tampa Convention Center is your once-a-year opportunity to compare makes and models, and gear up with the latest accessories all at one time in one place!  

While you can shop till you drop anchor, beyond the boats and booths you’ll find boating fun and education for the whole family. Whether it's learning about boat and motor maintenance at Fred's Shed Interactive Learning center, attending a fun, interactive boating course at the Progressive Insurance Boat School, testing your skills on the boating simulator or relaxing dockside enjoying live music at the Yacht Club Lounge, there really is something for everyone!  No other show offers the same type of fun for the entire family.
