New England Boat Show adding space and new exhibitors

The New England Boat Show has expanded into a new hall, adding 100,000 square feet of floor space to accommodate 20 percent growth this year.

The Progressive Insurance New England Boat Show, which will run from Feb. 14-22, will have more than 800 new boats, boating accessories, boating seminars and activities.

The nine-day show has 20 new exhibitors this year.

Highlights of the 2015 show will include appearances by fisherman Dave Carraro of the National Geographic Channel’s “Wicked Tuna,” who will be signing autographs and meeting fans Feb. 20-22, and the new Progressive Boat School, where nautical newcomers can boost their boating IQ and learn the fundamentals of boat safety through daily clinics or virtual boating simulators.

The show also offers free seminars for DIY boaters, informational clinics and hands-on activities for young skippers and families.
