Boatica Cape Town

Welcome to the 20th edition of the Boat Show

Boatica Cape Town is Africa's largest boating exhibition set against the backdrop of the beautiful Mother City. The event features manufacturers and buyers of luxury boats, accessories and marine equipment, a once-in-a-life time VIP Boat Cruise, 120 exhibiting companies, over 12 live on-water activities and a luxury lifestyle exhibition for a premium shopping experience.

In the face of the pandemic, the boatica team has designed a plan to ensure that the event goes ahead while making sure that all exhibiting companies get the maximum amount of exposure whilst still adhering to all COVID protocols. One of these plans involves the event layout - the traditional marque will now be replaced with snowpeaks on the north wharf of the venue. This ensures the continuous flow of fresh air and ample space for visitors and exhibitors alike.

From sailing competitions, to SUP racing, dragon boat racing, kids' activities and a host of other activities, there is plenty to see and do for the whole family! 

Boatica Cape Town will take place 28-30 October 2022 at the V&A Waterfront.

“My first Boat Show Experience was AMAZING, but this is especially due to the support from the Organisers! Your Team was so well organised and very informative, they were all beyond helpful and very ready to assist in the most friendliest manner.”

“The Cape Town International Show was our first attendance and it was exceptionally planned well and the location is the utmost best location. We managed to convert 23 people to become Greenpeace supporters and a lot more who signed our save our oceans partitions. Greenpeace would defiantly consider attendance on the 2020 Event”

“Being our first show, we had a great time and a lot more interest than we thought. Our stand was busy and we managed to pick up 4 more new deck orders and have sent out a few quotes since the show too. We met some wonderful people who were also exhibiting and made a lot of contacts for future business. Looking forward to the 2020 Boatica!”
