Western Canada’s premiere boat show, the Vancouver International Boat Show, is returning in the New Year, giving boaters an early start to the upcoming season. Running Wednesday, January 21 to Sunday, January 25, 2015, the 53rd annual event will host more than 250 exhibitors showcasing the best and biggest selection of boats and boating products.
“Last year we saw a great number of motivated buyers and attendees eager to start their boating season and experience BC’s stunning coastline and hundreds of lakes and rivers” says Show Director Linda Waddell. “We are excited to once again host visitors from all across Western Canada, and help navigate their way to getting out on the water this season, and experience the boating lifestyle.”
This year’s highly anticipated featured guest will be none other than Tuna.com’s Captain, Dave Carraro – star of the hit National Geographic TV Show Wicked Tuna. Dave will be on hand for meet and greets with fans, and will be more than willing to give the inside scoop on what it’s like to be one of the most respected and talented fisherman in the North Eastern US.
The Vancouver Boat Show’s two great locations – an indoor venue at BC Place and in-water venue at Granville Island – offer show goers of all ages and expertise an unparalleled experience. This year attendees can get their season started with family-friendly activities, a fantastic seminar lineup featuring top boating experts, and incredible deals on all the latest marine products.
