About The Show

The Providence Boat Show is the best place to shop, learn, and get inspired about boating in the Ocean State. Come see what the boating industry has in store for you—with hundreds of powerboats, sailboats, kayaks, inflatables, and other watercraft on display, plus a wide selection of gear & accessories. Building on the success of the 2014 show, the 2015 show included a comprehensive seminar program, a special Volvo Ocean Race display, and a Show Pavilion featuring special guest appearances, sea-to-table cooking demonstrations, and hands-on activities.

The Providence Boat Show is conveniently located at the Rhode Island Convention Center, in the heart of downtown Providence, where you will find great hotels, restaurants, and activities.
