WHAT: The Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show® docks at the Atlantic City Convention Center February 28-March 4 with more than 500 boats and water-lover activities to give lifelong boating enthusiasts and novices alike an all-access pass to discover why life is better with a boat. Serious shoppers will benefit from “Super Thursday” deals on boats and accessories as they shop, compare and find competitive deals on hundreds of the latest boats and thousands of new technologies. With everything from kayaks and personal watercraft to sportfishers and watersports boats, as well as new boats that can be financed for less than $250 a month, there is a boat for every lifestyle and budget at the Show.

NEW Touch-a-Boat Tour features actual working vessels and a variety of recreational boats throughout the Show floor. Little skippers can climb aboard, talk to captains, snap a pic at the helm and learn the ropes of life on the high seas. Plus, youngsters who want to take their boating to the next level can participate in the Jr. Captains Program, a boating skills and safety education program developed by the Annapolis School of Seamanship to teach valuable first mate line handling skills such as tying a cleat hitch, throwing a line over a piling and becoming familiar with onboard safety and communication equipment.

Attendees can also take the helm at Progressive Boat Club’s NEW Oculus Rift virtual reality experience; try the latest paddlesports in the Step Up & Paddle Pool; catch tips from the pros at the Discover Fishing seminar series; get DIY tips on everything from engine repair to winter maintenance at Fred’sShed; step back in time with the expanded Classic & Antique Race Boat Collection; and give back to the local community by supporting the Captain’s Table Gala hosted by “Let Us Eat, Please” and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
