The 19th annual Providence Boat Show will be held Jan. 12-15 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in downtown Providence.

The first winter boat show in New England offers a collection of large and small power and sailboats from 150 exhibitors displaying more than 200 boats from 8 to 40 feet. There also will be more than 100 booths with electronics, engines, accessories and services, including financing, insurance, storage, repair and maintenance.

A new feature at this year’s show will be live trout fishing from a stocked indoor pond.

Two weeks later, the 43rd annual CMTA Hartford Boat Show returns Jan. 27-29 to the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.

“We are very proud of our long-running show. It’s professionally run, has a very dependable gate, and every year it just gets better,” show chairman Tom Krivickas said.

Preceding the New England shows, and beginning before the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is down, is the New York Boat Show.

The show runs Jan. 4-8 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
