Cape Town International Boat Show from 20 – 22 October 2017

October 20, 2017 - October 22, 2017


Grab the chance to see how a life on the ocean wave was meant to be when the “Grandaddy of all boat shows on the African Continent” grandstands at the V&A waterfront this October.

This year, the Cape Town International Boat Show will be hosted within the V&A Waterfront, unlike the previous 16 years, where some of the displays were accommodated at the CTICC.

Come one, Come all

You are sure to find something to fascinate or delight whether you love cruising, water sports, are working on your own boat, or just enjoy beautiful things.

Ladies, if you don’t like boats – you will find many places at the V&A Waterfront to lose yourself in fascination. The kids can tag along to enjoy the child-friendly entertainment at this world-class venue or join Dad in gazing at the boats.

What’s On Show

You will find everything that floats at this grand exhibition – from inflatable paddling boards to kayaks and dinghies and luxury yachts, along with all the bits and pieces that keep them ticking over. Exhibitors will be able to offer advice on taking out ‘floating” insurance for when things go awry, comfort items like sunglasses, heat pads and sailing gear as well as a wealth of advice and guidance from experts in their fields.

Carbon Catamaran Cruising and more

An interesting highlight of the show is the launch of the first full carbon sailing catamaran built to withstand Cape Town’s challenging oceans and for lightweight, high performance sailing in the world’s most beautiful destinations.

Knysna Yacht Company is bringing two limited edition superbly luxurious yachts for you to admire, Maverick Yachts will be showing their custom-built long-range live in catamarans, and the NSRI will be there showcasing their skills.


Every convenience is within reach for visitors to the Cape Town Boat Show. A host of eateries, including food trucks and five-star restaurants, are within walking distance and the city sightseeing bus stop is right outside.

Get in on the Action
