• Overview

    The 45th Annual Fort Myers Boat Show, November 16-19, 2017 at the Harborside Event Center and the City Yacht Basin is shaping up to be the biggest show in the last several years. On the Caloosahatchee River, in the heart of the historic “River District” (myriverdistrict.com), this is just about the perfect setting for a show with a unique combination of indoor, outdoor and in-water display areas. You will find more than 500 boats, 160 accessory booths, 100 plus different boat lines, and a variety of how-to and boating information displays.

    With just about every type of boat imaginable, you will find inflatables, personal watercrafts, skiffs, bay boats, flats boats, center console boats, pontoon boats, deck boats, cruising boats, performance boats and much more. In water at The City Yacht Basin will be both new and brokerage boats of every description to nearly 80’ in length.

    From engines and electronics to docks and boat lifts, to all types of marine services to clothing and nautical gift items, and just about everything else you need on the water, you will most likely find it inside the Harborside Event Center or throughout the outdoor displays.

    In Centennial Park, “Fishin’ Frank’s Fishin’ Village” is its own mini-fishing show. There will be tackle displays with many factory reps on hand, a seminar area with local charter captains talking about inshore and offshore fishing, a casting tank, and the popular fishing simulator which gives visitors a chance for a virtual battle with everything from bass to marlin.

  • Fort Myers Boat Show

    Picture 1 of 30




    The Boat Show is located in downtown Fort Myers and there are some changes this year. The Harborside Event Center is closed for renovation and an adjoining beautiful new hotel is under construction. Fortunately, we have been able to redesign a portion of our layout to accommodate our exhibitors and to create a great new look. The main entrance will now be off of 1st Street at the west end of Centennial Park. Exhibits will wind through the Park and Edwards Drive east to the In-Water displays at the Fort Myers City Yacht Basin.


    November 16th Thursday 10am-6pm

    November 17th Friday 10am-6pm

    November 18th Saturday 10am-6pm

    November 19th Sunday 10am-5pm

    More details will be posted as the show nears.


    The physical address of Harborside is 1375 Monroe Street, Ft. Myers, FL 33901.

    From I-75, take Exit 138 (MLK Boulevard). Head west into downtown (about four miles).

    From U.S. 41: If you are coming from the south, watch for signs leading you into downtown just before crossing the river. From the north, take the first exit over the river and head east on 1st Street. Once in the downtown area, there are several cross streets that lead to the show, between Lee Street and Monroe Street.


    There is a large lot available for show parking less than ½ mile from the show entrance. It is located west of the show between McGregor Blvd. and W First Street at Altamonte Avenue (next to Publix). There will be free trolley service from this lot to the show entrance, making this easily the most convenient place to park.

    In addition, there is downtown parking

    • The Edison Parking Garage, about three blocks from the show, is on Monroe Street between 1st and Bay Streets.
    • There is parking in the Jackson Street Garage (Jackson and Main). This is only two blocks from the show entrance at the Yacht Basin and Lee Street.
    • Over the weekend there is also plenty of street parking available throughout downtown

    There is a downtown locator map on our website.


    Admission is $12.00 per person, with children under 16 free with paid adult admission. We do not have advance ticket sales. It is fast and convenient to buy tickets at the main show entrance (off 1st Street at the west end of Centennial Park) or at the Marina Entrance (Lee Street and Edwards Drive).


    This is one of the most complete display of boats on Florida’s west coast. On land and in-water, visitors will see everything from bay boats to new and used luxury yachts. You will find a variety of inshore and offshore fishing boats, custom skiffs, pontoon and deck boats and virtually every type of boat to enjoy your time on the water.


    This is far more than just a display of boats. We have the largest display of accessory items of any Boat Show on Florida’s west coast including displays of electronic equipment, motors, fishing equipment, accessories and other items from manufacturers all over the world. Plus you will find a wide variety of service companies, marinas and shipyards and educational information to help you get the most out of your time on the water.


    There will be one-of-a-kind products such as apparel, sun glasses and boat shoes or you can plan your next fishing trip by obtaining information on resorts and marinas. And, with nautical clothing and gift items, this is a great chance to kick start your Christmas shopping for your family and friends who enjoy the boating lifestyle.


    You sure do not want to miss our expanded Fishing Village and Tackle Show with Seminars, tackle displays, fishing simulators, casting ponds and many fishing experts who will be on hand to answer questions and just talk fishing.


    There will be a Boat Maintenance Area, manned by the Ft. Myers Technical College who can answer questions on motor repair, electronics, and just about every regular maintenance tasks you may be trying to tackle.

    The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, U.S. Power Squadron, Lee County Marine Task Force and Homeland Security will all have displays and can answer a wide range of questions on boating safety, boating regulations, and help you enjoy your time on the water.


    There are a wide variety of food and drinks available. Inside is the new “Harborside Café” with food and drinks. In Centennial Park is the popular “Everglades Barbecue” Tent. The “Yacht Basin Pub” overlooks the beautiful new basin and features a variety of both seafood and traditional items as well as cold beer, wine and cocktails.

    There are many great restaurants within an easy walk of the show. If you have not been in downtown Ft. Myers lately you will be surprised at how the area has come alive. Along with your paid admission will be a coupon for a “buy one get one free” drink at several of those restaurants.


    We are pet lovers but given the scope of the show and insurance / liability issues, we cannot allow pets.
