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:
