Make way! Here comes the 56th Annual Portland Boat Show this January 13th. Look over a huge variety of boats to shop and compare until your heart’s content!  See new lines, brands and styles all at the Portland Boat Show. This year’s 5 day event has plenty to offer those with boating interests and in need of on-the-water thrills! You’ll find fishing boats, ski boats, sailing vessels, yachts, personal watercraft and paddle sports.

The Portland Boat Show occurs only once a year and is the only boat show in Oregon – so weigh anchor and get to the show. Each year, boaters from all over the Northwest come to see what’s new in boat lines, technology and accessories — and the 2016 Portland Boat Show will not disappoint. Once again we will have great savings by using 2 for 1 admission (all days of the show) and free parking at select times!

Each year hundreds of boats are moved into the Portland Expo Center, including sailboats, sport boats, wakeboard boats, pleasure craft, fishing boats, off-shore vessels, and personal watercraft – all inside 250,000 square feet of indoor exhibit space – so don’t worry about the rain!  There will be local and national manufacturers, plenty of associations and dozens of dealers in attendance. – along with local boating retailers, accessory suppliers and experts. Remember: local manufacturers, retailers and dealers are ready to make great deals. Plus we have financing right on site with TwinStar Credit Union.

The 5 Days of boating excitement arrives this January 13 through 17 at the Portland Expo Center!

The big boats are back! This year we are seeing dealers bringing in boats over forty feet, so get ready to tour luxury yachts and gorgeous sailing vessels! Plus JR. Boat Building is always fun for the kids to make their own boat – courtesy of Schooner Creek Boat Works.

Previously owned boats are available – The Portland Boat Show will have a nice selection of previously owned boats and new boats at the show inside Hall C. The demand for previously owned boats is always good and the local dealers are here to help find the boat that fits your needs.

2 for 1 is back! Once again we are excited to offer 2-for-1 coupons for admission good all days of the show. Plus, FREE PARKING will be available on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings only (from 5pm to 9pm) – come by after work, forget the traffic and enjoy the show.  That could mean a savings of $18.00.



The Portland Boat Show will be featuring life jacket program developed and supported by the local District 5 of the International Order of the Blue Gavel. This year they will be implementing a life jacket re-cycling program called “Save a Life – Re-cycle Life Jackets”. The group will provide empty boxes at the Portland Boat Show in the main lobby to place re-cycled life jackets into – so please take the time to donate to those in need!


Boats of all shapes, sizes and price ranges flank the entrance to the Portland Expo Center. Halls C, D & E, make up the HUGE Portland Boat Show.
