• BC Boat Show 2018


MAY 3 – 6, 2018

The BCYBA’s annual boat show is moving to Sidney. We outgrew our space and now we’ve outgrown our name! In 2018 the BCYBA boat show will be renamed the BC Boat Show and we are pleased to announce that the Mill Bay Marine Group will be our presenting sponsor.

Taking place on May 3-6, 2018, the 2018 BC Boat Show will be bigger and better than ever. The new venue at Port Sidney Marina will offer expanded opportunities for vendors and exhibitors, as well as better access and parking to accommodate our growing audience.

The BC Boat Show is hosted by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association (BCYBA) and has grown to become the largest in-the-water boat show on the west coast. The show is an opportunity for yacht brokers to display and sell boats for sale to a wide audience who can go on board all of the boats and discuss the many features with knowledgeable and professionally certified brokers. There are usually around 200 boats of all sizes in the water as well as many marine related business displays featuring everything from boat yard services, hardware, equipment, navigation electronics, clothing, etc. People attending the show over its four-day run can expect to spend many delightful hours touring the boats of their dreams, seeing the latest yachts both new and used, and witnessing many interesting demonstrations. Sales often occur right at the show, as the brokers are usually prepared to offer special pricing for an at-the-show sale.

This year’s event will be more than a boat show – more like a festival for all to enjoy. The Town of Sidney, local businesses and associations are enthusiastic about the show’s return and have extended a very warm welcome. Activities, displays and events will take place both in and around Port Sidney Marina. Dry land exhibition space will be on a tented barge right in the Marina and we will be featuring a floating food and beverage garden.

Everyone is welcome and children are encouraged to attend with their parents.
