The Progressive Los Angeles Boat Show

February 6, 2013 — 2 Comments

On shore and in-water, the 2013 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show goes full throttle as it returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center and debuts its new in-water location at Burton W. Chace Park in Marina del Rey. 


A perfect family outing, the West Coast’s premier boat show will showcase hundreds of boats, from entry-level family cruisers to million dollar yachts, plus thousands of the newest marine accessories and gear, daily educational seminars, and fun for new and experienced boaters of all ages. Bring the kids, there’s something for everyone throughout the weekend!


The 2013 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show is the ultimate destination for boating and outdoor lifestyle enthusiasts, featuring sport fishing vessels, brokerage yachts, performance boats, sailboats, ski boats, cruisers, jet skis, pontoons, motorboats, catamarans, cabin cruisers, inflatables, canoes, kayaks, Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs), and more. With the addition of the in-water portion of the show, visitors can also find super-sized new and brokerage yachts — both power and sail — available for on-board tours and cruising “test drives.”


Activities include:

  • Stand Up Paddleboarding – “Try it” at the indoor pool inside the LA Convention Center
  • Meet Nickelodeon’s “Dora the Explorer” – Special meet and greet Saturday and Sunday 12pm to 4pm with everyone’s favorite bilingual kid adventurer, Dora!


  • Celebrity appearances by Phil & Bob Soven from MTV’s WakeBrothers

  • Powerboat Docking Challenge — test you docking skills, steering a mini water-craft down a 20-ft. “lake” to the marina and into a slip.
  • Radio Disney and the California Department of Boating and Waterways – Learning to boat safely and responsibly with an interactive exhibit hosted by Radio Disney.  Fun and games for the whole family!

  • Fred’s Shed DIY seminars and Interactive Learning Center
