The Progressive Atlantic City Boat Show opens at 11 a.m. today at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

The Progressive Atlantic City Boat Show opens at 11 a.m. today at the Atlantic City Convention Center and will continue through Sunday, featuring more than 500 boats, ranging from personal watercraft and sportfishers to wake sports boats.

The Mid-Atlantic’s largest boating event is in its 38th year.

The show’s first-ever “Super Thursday” will offer attendees savings on products, show discounts, such as $5 off admission after 5 p.m., and all-day giveaways from Meet AC, including tickets to see Florida Georgia Line and round-trip airline tickets, according to show organizer National Marine Manufacturers Association.

“There are 500 boats at the show and hundreds of dealers and manufacturers represented. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to learn a lot at a one-stop shop,” Carrie Waible, a spokeswoman for the event, told the Press of Atlantic City.
