The BC Boat Show is back!

BC Boat Show

Apr 30, 2024

Join the excitement May 2-5, 2024, at Port Sidney Marina in Sidney BC for an on-the-water weekend showcasing 200+ boats of all sizes (new & used), marine exhibits, and more!

The BC Boat Show has grown to become the largest in-the-water boat show on the west coast. Proudly hosted by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA), the show is an opportunity for people to tour the boats of their dreams, explore the latest yachts – both new and used as well as many marine related business displays featuring everything from boat yard services, hardware, equipment, navigation electronics, clothing, etc.

Visitors can discuss the many features of the boats on display with knowledgeable and professionally certified yacht brokers. Sales often occur right at the show, as the brokers are usually prepared to offer special pricing for an at-the-show sale.

On the shores of the Salish Sea, Sidney’s downtown district is the heart of the Saanich Peninsula. Locally owned shops, boutique hotels, cafés & eateries, and more offer the very best the West Coast has to offer – and it’s all easy walking distance from the BC Boat Show!

Coming from Vancouver? Take our FREE shuttle bus from BC Ferries (Swartz Bay Terminal) to the BC Boat Show! The shuttle runs May 2-5 and meets each Vancouver ferry arriving during show hours, no need to pre-book! It’s easy – leave your car at home and get direct service from the BC Ferries Swartz Bay Terminal to the BC Boat Show at Port Sidney Marina.

Everyone is welcome and children are encouraged to attend, free of charge, with their parents.
