BC Boat Show

Mar 24, 2020

On March 13, 2020 the organizers of the BC Boat Show announced the new show dates have been scheduled for September 24 – 27, 2020. The 30th Annual BC Boat Show has been postponed in light of the ongoing global COVID-19 outbreak and recent announcement from the BC Ministry of Health banning all events over 250 people.

Known as the West Coast’s largest in-the-water boat show, the event was set to take place April 30 – May 3 at Port Sidney Marina in Sidney, BC. The show typically draws several thousand attendees with visitors from across British Columbia and Washington State.

The show is put on by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA) which is a self-regulating professional not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting all aspects of the recreational marine industry and ensuring that yacht brokers maintain a high standard of competence and professional ethics.
