The Progressive Norwalk Boat Show opens today and runs through Sunday at Norwalk Cove Marina in Norwalk, Conn.

This year’s show is one of the largest fall shows in the Northeast and organizers said it is 20 percent larger than it was in 2015.

The 2016 show will have more than 200 boats composed of 60 varieties of watercraft, ranging from 70 boats larger than 40 feet in the New Luxury Yacht Showcase to more than 2,000 feet of center consoles, sailboats and more.

The show also will offer attendees seminars and on-water training options to increase their boating knowledge.

This year the Connecticut Marine Trades Association is partnering with the show to host its first marine industry career day from 3-6 p.m. on Friday, according to show owner NMMA.

During the career event, marine businesses that have jobs to fill can publicize their open positions to job seekers. Participating companies will be able to meet with prospective candidates and post open positions on a job board that will be displayed throughout the show.

Job seekers will be able to meet face to face with companies that are looking for employees and will gain complimentary show admission on Friday afternoon, beginning at 2 p.m., by presenting a resume or job application at the will-call window.

The Norwalk Boat Show also will offer family-friendly activities, including free boat rides, live music and stand-up paddle boarding.
