The Progressive Cedar Point Boat Show & Demo will dock for 4 days at Cedar Point Marina from August 22-25.

This in-water show will allow visitors to get in the water and try out various vessels/watercrafts first-hand, including select boats, vintage Lymans, jet skis, sail boats, paddle boards and kayaks. Guests can even try their hand at wake surfing or take a jump in the Go Dive Now pool for a scuba diving lesson!

Featuring an impressive display of around 300 new and pre-owned boats ranging from inflatables to motor yachts, most of which will be on display in the water. However, if you’re a bargain hunter, you’ll also enjoy the first-ever “Parking Lot Sale,” where dealers will display a variety of new and pre-owned trailerable fishing, runabout, and water sports models at clearance prices.

The show will also feature a special exhibit called “Lymans Coming Home,” which will celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the first Lyman Boat that was built in Sandusky, and the hundreds that followed. A Lyman from each decade will be represented, and artifacts from the original Lyman Boat Works provided by Tom Koroknay (aka. Doc Lyman), the preeminent Lyman historian, will be showcased.

Guests looking for current boating trends, can attend on-stage seminars covering topics like winterizing tips, the latest smartphone boating apps, and fishing clinics. All the latest trends in island/boating-themed goods and apparel will also be on display for sale in the popular Lake Erie Market.

Each day, the show will feature a sensational line-up of live music from some island favorites, and this year’s show will also feature the addition of food trucks, to extend the variety of food options from past years.

The popular annual Toledo Antique and Classic Boat Show will also be held on site this year, featuring a selection of classic models maintained or restored to their original glory.

The show is produced by The Lake Erie Marine Trades Association (LEMTA), who has been dedicated to Ohio’s marine industry for over 62 years by providing legislative advocacy, educational support and efforts to improve boating throughout the state.
