The Vancouver International Boat Show will be celebrating its 60th edition when it returns in just three weeks – providing attendees with a first look at the 2023 boating season’s premiere boat models and accessories along with presentations and workshops led by boating experts.

“The pandemic presented a number of significant challenges, but if there is a silver lining, it’s how these circumstances have given us a better appreciation for the opportunity to come together and share our common love of everything associated with boating,” said Vancouver International Boat Show Manager Amanda Henschell.

“The return of this signature event connects visitors with salespeople and product specialists who will be representing all of the major brands, providing a perfect opportunity for experienced and novice boaters to purchase anything they need in order to get out on BC’s incredible waters,” continued Henschell.

This year’s show will once again be hosted in two locations, indoors at BC Place and the floating show at Granville Island. Free shuttle buses and water ferries will also be operating continuously between the two venues.

Show Hours for February 1 – 5, 2023 are as follows:

BC Place
Wednesday through Saturday 10am – 8pm
Sunday 10am – 5pm

Granville Island – Floating Show
Wednesday through Saturday 10am – 5:30pm
Sunday 10am – 5pm

Western Canada’s largest consumer boating event, the Vancouver International Boat Show is owned by the Boating BC Association and produced by Canadian Boat Shows. Specific program and access details will be posted at www.VancouverBoatShow.ca as they are finalized.
