2020 Vancouver International Boat Show
Van Isle Marina will be Showcasing Riviera and Pursuit Models at this Year’s Show
The highly anticipated 56th annual Vancouver International Boat Show, happening February 5-9, 2020 at BC Place and Granville Island in Vancouver, is fast approaching – and we here at Van Isle Marina are excited to be returning for another year to display our 2019 Riviera and Pursuit boats this year.
Brought to recreational boaters in part by show owners, the Boating BC Association, and producer, Canadian Boat Shows, the Vancouver International Boat Show is a world-class show that draws large crowds of boating enthusiasts from all over the Pacific Northwest.
The show is the province’s largest showcase for the recreational boating industry and brand new products coming up in 2020! It is suited for experienced and beginner boaters alike – with entire sections and exhibits dedicated to new boaters, and even to those who have never stepped foot on a boat before!
Throughout this 5-day show, hundreds of boats will be on display at two locations: inside at BC Place, and outside on the water at Granville Island. You’ll find Van Isle Marina staff at Granville Island (G-Dock) where our brokers will be happy to tour you around our boats on display.
We will be proudly showcasing these amazing boats at this year’s Vancouver International Boat Show:
- 2020 Pursuit Offshore (OS) 355
- 2020 Pursuit Offshore (OS) 325
- 2020 Pursuit Dual Console (DC) 295
- 2019 43’ Riviera Open Flybridge
