New Yorkers are being encouraged to shake off the winter chill and head to the 2013 Progressive Insurance New York Boat Show, 3-6 January.

With its 108-year history the show is recognized as THE place to see the latest and greatest in boating. The northeast’s premier boating event takes place at the Javits Center, providing post-holiday deals on everything from luxury motor yachts and sport fishers to performance boats, sailboats, and thousands of marine accessories.

Beyond the best in boating, the world’s first and longest-running boat show offers fun for the whole family including special appearances by MTV’s Wake Brothers, a real American shipwreck, and the new DEMA ‘Be a Diver’ pool where active water lovers can try their hand at SCUBA diving or paddlesports.
