Boat Shows From LA To Boston

It's a big boat show weekend in Los Angeles, Montreal, Detroit, Charlotte, St. Louis, Vancouver and more cities across North America...

This week's boat show report is another doozy, with boat shows of all sizes in big cities and small towns across the continent. In fact, if you haven't seen a boat show near you within the past few weeks, contact us and we'll see if we can't get one going!

With the mega-big Miami show still a week away, this weekend is packed with shows from coast to coast, including...

City of Angels
The 56th Annual Los Angeles Boat Show is at the LA Convention Center today through Sunday. Wonder if they give out any awards out there?! Surprised there's not a movie about this boat show.

Yes, Utah has a boat show. Beginning today and going through Sunday, the Utah Boat Show is in Sandy at the South Towne Expo Center.

The Show Me State
The St. Louis Boat and Sportshow began on Wednesday and runs through Sunday at the America's Center and Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, MO. This show has it all, including a chance to try SCUBA, see dogs diving into a pool, and let's the kids fish for free in a catch-and-release fishing pond.

Boston? Check. Cape Cod? Check. We feel bad for the exhibitors on and off the Cape who have to choose between these two great shows. The week-long New England Boat Show docks in Boston this Saturday the 11th, and runs through the following Sunday the 19th.  (We'll be there Monday if anybody wants to have their boats or products featured on the Daily Boater! - email us at  And this weekend in Hyannis it's the Sixth Annual Boatbuilders’ Show on Cape Cod, which calls itself “the best little boat show in the Northeast.” We've heard it's not too bad!

Clint Eastwood, Chrysler

The 54th Annual Detroit Boat Show will feature the premiere showing of hundreds of new 2012 boats, but we doubt Dirty Harry will make an appearance. The week long show starts Saturday the 11th, and runs through the following Sunday the 19th at the Cobo Center.

Carolina, Texas, Canada and More
There are several more boat and sport shows across North America this weekend and beyond. Dates, times and links to the official event websites can be found on the First Boat boat show calendar
