About the Progressive® Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show®

Welcome to the Progressive® Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show®—Celebrating 60 years as the best place to see and buy boats!

On behalf of the entire NMMA Show Team and this year’s exhibitors, we thank you for your interest in this year's show.

This year is special, as we are celebrating the show’s 60th anniversary. To mark this milestone, we are putting boating big screen at the all-new Float-in Theater. It’s a nod to drive-in theatres of the past—with a twist. We’ll be showing boating videos and holding seminars here, but Instead of watching from the front seat of a car, you’ll be relaxing on deck in a boat.

If you’re a boat owner who enjoys DIY-projects, be sure to stop by Fred’s Shed Interactive Learning Center for free seminars on boat and motor maintenance and repair. Test your boating skills on the United States Power Squadrons® new Boating Skills Virtual Trainer in the Convention Center. If your crew includes little skippers, be sure to stop by the Kids’ Zone sponsored by West Marine for balloon art, crafts and more!

Once again the show features two venues with new boats, gear and accessories showcased indoors at the Los Angeles Convention Center and sail- and powerboats 35' and larger featured in-water at Burton Chace Park in Marina del Rey. Take the free shuttle for easy and comfortable transportation between the two show sites. Your ticket allows entry at both locations all day! Shuttle stops are located in the Convention Center lobby and at the entrance of Burton Chace Park at the end of Mindanao Way in Marina del Rey.

Curious about sailing? Experience how a boat reacts to wind and waves aboard the Sailing Simulator in Marina del Rey—without leaving dry land. If you’re ready to kick your boating skills up a notch, Discover Boating’s Hands-On Skills Training offers on-water instruction, with both powerboating and sailing classes available, taught by professional skippers.

When you are ready for a break from shopping the boat show, visit the Food Court at the Convention Center (next to the accessories marketplace) for fresh salads, Dodger Dogs, Mexican food and more! In addition, a number of LA’s famous gourmet Food Trucks will be serving guests each day at Marina del Rey.
Thank you for all your support through the years. We are looking forward to many more boating experiences with you! We hope you’ll agree—life is better on a boat!
