About This Deal

Unlike inferior vessels, such as blood vessels and Björk's 2003 DVD Vessel, boats float with ease. Today's deal buoys the boat-curious with one-day admission to the 54th annual New England Boat Show for $6, a $13 value for adults. Your Groupon is good for the day of your choosing between Saturday, February 20, and Sunday, February 28. Kids younger than 5 get in free when accompanied by an adult, and those aged 6–12 can get in for a cool $7 (the sleek, angular 7 being the most boatlike number).

A massive crew of seaworthy exhibitors will flood the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, showing off the latest in boating gear, accessories, and know-how. Over a thousand wave-slicing and edge-cutting boats will be on display alongside a multitude of new products and watery innovations. The extended roof at the convention center allows vessels as tall as fully rigged sailing yachts to sail through the space with ease, in addition to smaller speedboats and tricked-out paddleboats. This is the 54th incarnation of this storied event, which draws large numbers of mermaids and aquamen above sea level during its nine-day stint.

In addition to the tangible, there is a plethora of intangible wisdom to soak up inside the calm waters of the show. If you've always dreamed about owning a boat while being chased and falling naked in slow motion, but thought it would be financially unfeasible, visit the Affordability Pavilion for tips on how to create physical manifestations of your figments. Sit in on a variety of seminars such as costal navigation, getting your boat pilot license, and the basics of piratespeak.


There are no reviews of the New England Boat Show, but Yelpers and one TripAdvisor love the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center:

  • The convention center itself is MASSIVE...You need a good pair of sneakers and a lot of stamina...Very, very thankfully, there are tons of well-marked bathrooms everywhere you look and lots of walkways and bypasses…Bathrooms are all really clean. Not always a given at these kinds of places! – Maria V., Yelp
  • The main perks of BCEC, good wi-fi...clean and plentiful bathrooms, with a unisex one-seater in every block...benches throughout – Quinn E., Yelp
  • It was without a doubt, one of the best experiences I've ever had in Boston. This mega complex, is without a doubt built extremely well...The Convention Center can be a little confusing because it's massive but they have maps and people that are standing all over the different parts of the complex that will help you get where you're going. They couldn't be any more accommodating for people. – NoMo01, TripAdvisor
