Seattle Boat Show celebrates 75th anniversary Dec 15, 2021
Seattle

Feb 4, 2022 through Feb 12, 2022.

The Seattle Boat Show will be celebrating 75 years on Feb 4, 2022. The show will feature 255 exhibitors with more than 800 new and brokerage boats, as well as 13 marine dealers.

The event will be held indoors at Lumen Field Event Center and on the water at Bell Harbor Marina. Boats on display will include a 1948 20′ custom Chris Craft, a 1955 Chris Craft Capri and a very rare 1958-59 Chris Craft Silver.

A historical photo display of the past 75 years will document the show’s moves from the Washington National Guard Armory to the Seattle Center Coliseum to the Kingdome, followed by dropping anchor at Seahawks Stadium and Exhibition Center in 2000 – which is now known as the Lumen Field Event Center.

The display will include a look back at boats and outfits through the years and classic promotions such as Boat Show Queen and Boat Show Family of the Year.

There will also be a long putt challenge, starting on Feb 4, and running until Feb 11. Attendees can play mini golf at the Long Putt Challenge located inside the Boaters Lounge. All participants will receive a gift certificate to Flatstick Pub for a complimentary round. Winners who sink a putt will win a gift certificate of at least $50 and be entered into a raffle for the grand prize.

On February 7, women can attend the show for free and enjoy numerous seminars designed specifically for women, by women boaters.

It’s the perfect opportunity to meet, learn and get inspired by some of the most experienced and talented women boaters around. Visit Seattle Boat Show to print the complimentary pass. Women are free at both locations. Seminars are at Lumen Field Event Center.

There’s a special day at Lumen Field Event Center just for furry first mates, on February 10. Their owners can make a custom dog tag at the on-site engraving machine and stop by the photo booth, have some fun with the props and enter to win the cover dog contest.

The winning dog will be featured on the cover of a springtime issue of 48° North. Those arriving after 5pm for Yappy Hour can take home a dog life vest courtesy of Connelly Watersports (while supplies last). Dogs are welcome every day of the show at Bell Harbor. 

Entertaining and educational, the seminars are always one of the most popular features at the show. New for the 2022 show is an online component.

Attendees who can’t make all the in-person seminars on their list, or wish to revisit a favourite seminar, can watch the complete library of nine show days’ worth of boating and fishing seminars from the comfort of home for three months post-show.

The $99 dollar seminar ticket package includes multi-day admission to the show (a $36 value) and a boatload of goodies, including a copy of the Waggoner Cruising Guide.

Boat Show U classes will be offered as online webinars and are available to watch live (online only)during the show or on-demand until May 15,2022 with a seminar package ticket. This is an incredible value add to the ticket as Boat Show U courses were previously $55 each.
