The 24th annual Providence Boat Show will be held Feb. 3-5 at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

Organizers said the three-day expo is one of the largest indoor boat shows in New England and will showcase boats for every pocketbook, including a wide range of powerboats, sailing dinghies and paddle-powered watercraft.

Included in the admission price are free seminars with experts on boat handling, navigation and equipment. Special attractions and events include an indoor pool where all ages can enjoy stand-up paddleboard demonstrations and remote-control boats, and sea-to-table demos where showgoers can sample local seafood and learn how to prepare their catch.

The show is owned and managed by the Rhode Island Marine Trades Association and presented by Washington Trust.

As sailors, our obsession with sailing connects us to the water – the water is our playground, a sanctuary where we all seek enjoyment, a competitive playing field where we race as comrades; it’s sometimes our home; and always a place that unlocks our sense of adventure wherever that adventure might take us.
