The Suncoast Boat Show, Presented by Boat Owners Warehouse, returns to the docks on April 19-21, 2024 marking 42 years of presenting an extraordinary selection of powerboats, motor yachts, and more! This premier boat show on the Gulf Coast of Florida takes place at Marina Jack along 65,000 square feet of dock space, and features in-water and on-land displays.

See various boat styles all in one place including Cruisers, Runabouts, Bowriders, Sportfishers, Center Consoles, Motor Yachts, Inflatables, and more. Explore tents filled with electronics, accessories, retail, clothing, jewelry, and art. Attendees will enjoy the festive atmosphere, complete with food, drinks, and live music!

The show will feature nearly 150 exhibits and fun for children, too. On Saturday and Sunday, local television host Captain Don Dingman presents a youth fishing clinic entitled Hook the Future and gives each participant a free rod & reel combo for attending! The program not only teaches kids how to fish, but parents also learn how important it is to spend quality time as a family.
