Fun Boat Accessories and Boat Shows

No matter how long you have been boating, whether it has been all of your life or just a few months, it is pretty much a guarantee that you will learn something new by attending a boat show.

There is a whole lot more to do than just look at boats and drool over the yachts at a boat show. Sure, if you are looking to buy a new boat, a boat show is the place to be. But even if you don’t need a new boat, a boat show has much to offer.

Lillipad Marine, your source for fun boat accessories, offers the reasons you should attend a boat show.

See Cool Things

You can bet there will be cool things to see at a boat show. If you are lucky, you might attend a show that features a jet pack show. A guy wearing a jet pack hits a button and suddenly he is 30 feet in the air flying over the water.


Seminars are a strong draw for boat shows, and for very good reasons. There are seminars in which you can learn how to properly dock a boat, boating etiquette seminars and seminars dedicated to fishing from a boat.

These seminars are informative and fun and offer a wealth of knowledge.

People Watching

Just like the boats you see at boat shows, the people who attend are just as diverse and interesting. Boat shows draw people of all ages and all walks of life, which makes for an interesting event.

You can strike up a conversation with almost anybody at a boat show and learn a lot. You might even make a few friends.

Check Out the Demos

Get a front-row seat and make yourself comfortable for the latest in watersport technology. See the latest gadgets you can buy for your boat or check out the electric surfboards, kayaks and paddle boards.

Shopping at Boat Shows

You don’t have to be in the market for a boat to shop at a boat show, they offer everything under the sun. Any boat accessory you could ever imagine will be on sale at a boat show, not to mention shoes, hats, clothing and nautical jewelry.

Need an anchor? Visit the boat show and you will find every type of anchor you could ever want.

Family Time

Boat shows are a great way to get the rest of the family interested in boats. If they already love boats, a boat show is the perfect family outing.

Boat shows typically have kid-friendly exhibits. Your kids will have a blast watching demonstrations, picking up free samples and spending time in the play areas.

Studies show that families who boat together have a lot of fun and are more likely to work together as a team.

Feel Like a Kid

Even for adults, just attending a boat show can make you feel like a kid again. So go and have some fun.

But before you head out to the boat show, but your boat diving board right here at Lillipad Marine.
