Welcome to the 2019 Progressive® Insurance Tampa Boat Show®— Tampa Bay’s premiere boating event! Whether you own a boat, plan to buy a boat or are just testing the waters, there’s no better place to discover the benefits of boating

So Much to See! You’ll find hundreds of boats from all the top brands—the largest selection of NEW boats at any show on Florida’s West Coast. Explore an expanded selection of luxury yachts, center consoles, fish and ski boats, performance boats, family cruisers, and more, displayed on the main floor of the Tampa Convention Center and in-water right outside on the docks. With boats for every lifestyle, activity and budget, and the unique opportunity to compare different brands, the show is the BEST place to find a great deal and buy a boat.

If you want to outfit your current vessel, upgrade your nautical

You’ll find hundreds of cutting-edge products for sale including marine accessories, fishing gear, and electronics, along with services like boat insurance and financing options.

So Much to Do! Beyond the boats and booths, you’ll find boatloads of ways to learn more about boats and the boating lifestyle.
