1.) Insane deals on boats and gear

The temperature isn’t the only thing that is insane. This is the time that most dealerships try to move the last of the 2017 stock which means prices are almost unbelievable. There are outstanding savings to be had on all of the top brands of boats, to make it easier for you we recommend you visit Mastercraft at booth 600, Chaparral Booth 301 and Regal booth 551. The savings don’t stop at boats alone, in the vendor village you can find insane deals on accessories like life jackets, wakeboards, wakesurfers, waterskis, tubes and more.


2.) Free Swag

Did someone say FREE? Last year walking through the boat show we filled our bags with water bottles, pens, bracelets, buffs, coupons, flashlights, whistles...all very important things for having an outstanding summer on the water. Escape the cold, and take a few laps to pick up all the hand outs. Mastercraft has some awesome stuff waiting for you to take home.

3.) Indoor Lake with Wakeboard and Waterski Show

One of the coolest features of the Toronto International Boat show has to be the indoor lake. It has programming from the moment the show opens to close. You can try out paddle boats, paddle boards and there is even a waterskiing squirrel. The best part of the lake is the wakeboard and waterski show. Some of the world's top riders fly in just to put on a show that leave the crowd speechless. You’ll see tons of flips, spins and tricks.


4.) Mastercrafts 50th anniversary

Mastercraft has been making top of the line boats for waterskiing and wakeboarding for the last 50 years. They have created a one of a kind 50th anniversary boat with all the bells and whistles and some new features that have never been seen before to celebrate its Anniversary. Stop by booth 600 to sit behind the wheel of this amazing one of a kind boat.

Where else are you going to see a million dollar yacht, the top towed watersports boats, a fishing boat with more livewells than you can count and a swan shaped paddleboat? The Toronto International Boat show. There is something that will interest everyone in your family from the sun tanner to pontoon cruiser, the mermaid to the adrenaline junkie.


With the frigid temperatures outside, it is hard to remember what summer actually is. Sandals, boardshorts and lake living seem like an eternity away, that is unless you head to the Toronto International Boat Show. See you there!
