Seattle Boat Show 2016 Show Dates

Seattle Boat Show 2016
The Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) is pleased to announce the dates for the 2016 Seattle Boat Show at CenturyLink Field Event Center and South Lake Union. The 69th annual Seattle Boat Show will begin on Friday, Jan. 29 and end on Saturday, Feb. 6. This is the third consecutive year that the show will continue in a 9-day format.

“The Seattle Boat Show has experienced an increase in large boat displays. In order to preserve this favorite attraction in our increasingly congested city center, more time is needed to safely move boats out of the building,” said George Harris, NMTA president. “Combine this with a football crazy city and closing on the second Sunday just makes more sense. It also allows exhibitors and attendees to plan with certainly for a high energy Saturday night finale.”

The Seattle Boat Show is the largest boat show on the West Coast. The nine-day show features over 1,000 boats and yachts in two locations; more than three acres of marine accessories, electronics and boating gear; 450 exhibitors; 225 boating and fishing seminars; and entertainment. The show is the not-to-be-missed event on the calendar for boaters in the Pacific Northwest, many of whom have been faithfully attending for decades. Attendees traveled from at least 31 states and 6 Canadian provinces and as far away as Dubai and Sao Paulo, Brazil for the 2014 show.
