The Victoria Inner Harbour Boat Show

The Victoria Inner Harbour Boat Show is hosted by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA) and has grown to become the largest in-the-water boat show on the west coast.

The Victoria Inner Harbour Boat Show takes place April 27–30, 2017!

The Victoria Inner Harbour Boat Show is hosted by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA) and has grown to become the largest in-the-water boat show on the west coast. The show is an opportunity for yacht brokers to display and sell boats for sale to a wide audience who can go on board all of the boats and discuss the many features with knowledgeable and professionally certified brokers. There are usually around 200 boats of all sizes in the water as well as many marine related business displays located under a large tent on Ship Point, featuring everything from boat yard services, hardware, equipment, navigation electronics, clothing, etc. People attending the show over its four-day run can expect to spend many delightful hours touring the boats of their dreams, seeing the latest yachts both new and used, and witnessing many interesting demonstrations. Sales often occur right at the show, as the brokers are usually prepared to offer special pricing for an at-the-show sale.

The Boat Show has something for everyone in love with the idea of boating, whether you are still dreaming, new to the boating scene, an experienced sailor, on a modest budget, or want only the best. It will all be there.

Everyone is welcome and children are encouraged to attend with their parents.
