Grand Rapids Boat Show
February 15-19, 2017

Grand Rapids Boat Show

A West Michigan tradition! In our 71st year, the Grand Rapids Boat Show is launching into an era where we will be showing our broadest array of power boats ever…almost 5 acres of them, especially for the Great Lakes! The array of Motor Yachts, Cruisers, Runabouts, Fishing Boats, and Ski and Wakeboard Inboards is exceptional. Pontoon Boats continue to excel in new designs, features and cruising abilities. As we see technology advancing around us at fast speeds, we see advancements in boats – hull designs, power systems and the creature comforts. All summer long you marvel at the new boats you see on the water. Well now is your chance to board them and check them out! Boaters, this is your Show!

PLEASE NOTE: The following information is from the 2016 Grand Rapids Boat Show. The 2017 Show details will be coming soon.
