The 2014 Progressive Insurance San Diego International Boat Show attracted more than 7,600 visitors throughout the four-day event, up 24 percent compared to 2013; the show also featured 20 percent more exhibit space. Nearly 125 local, national and international companies exhibited at the boat show, and many are reporting it was the most successful show on the West Coast they’ve experienced in years.

The show not only increased the number of exhibitors, but also the number of attractions intended to attract attendees, including an expanded showcase of super yachts and a new seminar series on sport fishing and blue-water cruising south of the border.
