Even in the middle of winter, you can easily find yourself on a yacht in New York City if you care to attend the New York Boat Show, which features nearly 400 amazing vessels in Manhattan every January.
The New York Boat Show has everything from elite luxury yachts to simple fishing boats. Tens of thousands of sailing enthusiasts gather in Jacob K. Javits Convention Center to see the latest models of motorboats, schooners, skiffs, dinghy racers, and coastal cruisers. The event is family-friendly, so you can bring children to build toy boats, learn how to maintain engines and even take a ride in a power-boat simulator.
This event also features real working vessels from the United States Coast Guard and a variety of recreational boats throughout the showrooms. Kids of all ages are welcome to climb aboard, make a picture, socialize with the crew, and learn the ropes of life on the high seas.
