The 2016 Progressive Insurance Atlanta Boat Show will return Jan. 14-17 to the Georgia World Congress Center.

Organizers said the show, now in its 54th year, will have more boats than at any previous show. Hundreds of the latest models will be for sale, ranging from personal watercraft and pontoon boats to luxury yachts and bass boats, plus gear and accessories.

Professional anglers will lead hourly seminars at the Let’s Go Fishing Center and there will be an expanded series of boater safety and sailing seminars and a boating simulator.

For children, there will be a Catch & Release Pond and a new Kid Zone, which will feature such activities as boatbuilding, face painting, a bounce house, temporary tattoos and balloon art.
