Boating: 2016 Progressive Boat Show Win Tickets | #LABoatShow

Now that we are boat owners, we have discovered that B.O.A.T. stands for "Bust Out Another Thousand"!  Why?  There are always a lot of great upgrades that your boat can use.  Where do you go to see the latest toys and upgrades?  The 2016 Progressive Insurance® Los Angeles Boat Show® which is running February 25-28.  

 This year, the West Coast’s premier boating event cruises into the LA Convention Center
and Burton Chace Park in Marina del Rey so you have two great locations to look at.  Did you know if you want to see both, there is free transportation to and from each of them?

The 2016 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show takes place February 25-28, at the Los Angeles Convention Center and Burton W. Chace Park in Marina del Rey. The four-day event showcases hundreds of vessels from entry-level family cruisers to million dollar yachts, plus the latest in boating, outdoors, and marine accessories. Features also include a high-energy kids’ zone, educational seminars from industry experts, on-the-water boating lessons and maritime fun for all-ages. 

Hundreds of boats for sale – Get up close with a variety of watercraft including pontoons, wakesport boats, personal watercraft, inflatables, sailboats, catamarans, cruisers, yachts and much more – plus, it’s easy to climb aboard with complimentary transportation between the convention center and marina.
SailFest at Marina del Rey – It’s a sailor’s delight with sailboats, gear and accessories to shop, plus sailing seminars, on-water lessons from top instructors, and a sailing simulator to get those feet wet before hitting the water. 

*NEW* Float-In Theater – Enjoy the boating lifestyle without even leaving the dock. Just like the drive-in theater you remember only better! Grab a seat and enjoy the sights and sounds of the water and boating lifestyle – all while sitting at the helm. 

Kids’ Zone – Keep the kiddos busy with toy boat-building, balloon artists, and fun surprises!
Boat Smart – From Discover Boating Hands-On Skills Training, where attendees get on the water to learn the ropes from USCG-certified captains, to Fred’s Shed Interactive Learning Center for the DIY boater and dozens of other seminars for all ages and levels of experience, everyone can expand their nautical know-how and prepare for fun and safety on the water.
