The 45th Annual Fort Myers Boat Show, November 16-19, 2017 at the Harborside Event Center and the City Yacht Basin is shaping up to be the biggest show in the last several years. On the Caloosahatchee River, in the heart of the historic “River District” (myriverdistrict.com), this is just about the perfect setting for a show with a unique combination of indoor, outdoor and in-water display areas. You will find more than 500 boats, 160 accessory booths, 100 plus different boat lines, and a variety of how-to and boating information displays.
With just about every type of boat imaginable, you will find inflatables, personal watercrafts, skiffs, bay boats, flats boats, center console boats, pontoon boats, deck boats, cruising boats, performance boats and much more. In water at The City Yacht Basin will be both new and brokerage boats of every description to nearly 80’ in length.
From engines and electronics to docks and boat lifts, to all types of marine services to clothing and nautical gift items, and just about everything else you need on the water, you will most likely find it inside the Harborside Event Center or throughout the outdoor displays.
In Centennial Park, “Fishin’ Frank’s Fishin’ Village” is its own mini-fishing show. There will be tackle displays with many factory reps on hand, a seminar area with local charter captains talking about inshore and offshore fishing, a casting tank, and the popular fishing simulator which gives visitors a chance for a virtual battle with everything from bass to marlin.
