'The combination of McCovey Cove and Pier 48 creates the perfect setting for a premier boat show in the Bay Area,' said Progressive Insurance San Francisco Boat Show’s Executive Director Dave Geoffrey. 'The San Francisco Bay Area has not seen a boat show of this magnitude in a very long time, and we’re very excited to provide Northern California boaters and non-boaters alike a chance to enjoy and discover the boating lifestyle.'

McCovey Cove will be transformed into an in-water showroom, allowing visitor’s access to the larger in-water luxury motor yachts, sailboats and fishing vessels, plus daily on-water boating workshops for those who want boating lessons. Inside, Pier 48 will be filled with trailer boats, ski boats and marine accessories, in addition to daily educational opportunities and boating fun for all ages.

Show highlights include:

· Try it Cove – Inside Pier 48, an indoor pool will offer opportunities for attendees to get wet and try a variety of on-the-water activities including stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, inflatables and more.

· Discover Boating’s Hands-on Skills Training – Professional boaters will host free boat rides and hands-on boating workshops for beginners to experienced boaters along San Francisco Bay.

· Free Boating and Sailing Seminars – Dozens of free educational opportunities will be offered for boaters of all skill levels inside Pier 48.
