About the Show
The Progressive® Insurance Tampa Boat Show® is a must-attend event for all Tampa Bay boaters. As Tampa’s largest and longest-running boat it's the best place to see and buy boats, gear and accessories! 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, too. 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!
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 with a drink and enjoying live music at the Yacht Club Lounge, there really is something for everyone!
