The Montreal Boat and Water Sports Show from February, 2th to 5th
Place Bonaventure turn up the heat!
Brossard, January 25, 2017 – From February 2 - 5, the Montreal Boat and Water Sports Show will host at Place Bonaventure what is considered to be the greatest annual meeting venue for all boaters and boating activities enthusiasts. Organized by the Quebec Maritime Association, this exclusive event brings together the greatest choice of boats of all types in the province, ranging in price from $ 500.00 to 1 million $! Among new boats featured will be electric boats offering superb performance, new generation wakeboard boats and an impressive selection of fishing boats. It is also a perfect opportunity for visitors who are in the market for a boat to benefit from fantastic discounts from exhibitors.
Over the past two decades, the Montreal Boat Show has gained a solid reputation for not only the quality of boats it presents but also for the wide variety of models on display representing all the trends the market has to offer. Whether you are attracted by Stand-Up Paddleboards, wakeboard boats, sport fishing, sailing or cruising yachts, you will be impressed by the overall offering of boats and accessories on the premises. Some 450 boats of all types from more than 85 manufacturers will be on display for this grand event. Moreover, it is an ideal opportunity to reap fabulous discounts which can translate in as much as a $ 20,000.00 reduction on the price of a new boat.
Free admission to the Boat Show
As new QMA general manager, Mr. Alain Roy is confident that the 2017 Edition of the Boat Show will conquer the hearts and minds of the more than 26,000 show goers expected to attend. “The Montreal Boat Show remains a major event and is a special get together for the community we represent. This is why we wanted to go the distance by offering free admission to all our new members this year. We have also put together a great contest with prizes worth more than $ 20,000.00”, says Mr. Roy.
Among the many exclusive presentations at the Show, the Innovation Area will feature electric boats and, not to be missed, what will be the first showing of the Sealander, a floating RV from Germany driven by an electric motor. Another worthy attraction will be two electric boats from the Canadian Electric Boat Company (CEBC), a 100% Quebec manufacturer located in St-Eustache. One of these exclusive models from CEBC is the much awaited Bruce 22 with a design inspiration from the beautiful crafts of the Fifties and which is already said to be the equivalent of a nautical Tesla.
The greatest choice of fishing boats
The 18th Edition of the Boat Show will be a great showcase of fishing boats as well for all who are into this very popular leisure activity. The Show actually features the greatest selection of fishing crafts in one unique venue. Look for new models presented by Lund, the XTR, F and Enjoy series by Legend, or the all new Expedition series by Princecraft.
Wakeboard: an enduring trend in Quebec
For their part, wakeboard aficionados will have much to see at the Boat Show with new models for 2017 from the likes of Mastercraft, Tigé, Moomba, Supra and Malibu Boats. They’ll find these new boats equipped with the latest wave control technology for surfers. It is worth noting that many exhibitors have already put out the word that they will offer substantial discounts on boats that will be on display at the Show.
Interactive Treasure Hunt
For the first time ever during a Show dedicated to boating and nautical activities, visitors will have the opportunity to participate in an Interactive Treasure Hunt which will give them access to special promotions from exhibitors and making them eligible to various contests. Participation is easy since all they have to do is downloading the iNautique app which will act as their personal guide at the Show.
To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canada, Parks Canada offers free admission to all National Parks, National Historic Sites and National Marine Conservation Areas in the country. This means that boaters will be able to use all Historical Canals locks free of charge as many times as they want in 2017. Plan to stop at the Parks Canada stand to learn more about this wonderful opportunity.
