The Progressive Insurance New England Boat Show will return Saturday for a nine-day run with 25 more exhibitors than in 2013, the biggest turnout in six years for the region’s largest boat show.

More than 800 boats will be at the show, which is expected to draw more than 48,000 people in its 59th year.

“We have sold out our exhibition space for the second year in a row — even after adding space since last year’s sellout,” show manager Joe O’Neal said in a statement. “Twelve new boat lines are making their debut at our show, which reflects the fact that manufacturers are able to expand their sales teams and geographic reach to take advantage of consumer demand.”

O’Neal said his team is “very optimistic about the 2014 Progressive Insurance New England Boat Show and anticipate it being a sales driver for all of our exhibitors.”
