With the harsh winter Chicagoans faced in 2013-14, everyone’s ready for a some fun in the sun. Returning to the Windy City for the third year is the Midwest’ largest in-water boat show: The 2014 Progressive Insurance Chicago In-Water Boat Show, which runs June 5-8 at Chicago’s 31st Street Harbor.

Start off the summer right with this one-stop marketplace for boating enthusiasts — the show will feature more than 125 power- and sailboats for sale, the latest in marine gear and plenty of attractions. With every vessel from luxury yachts, including the Marquis 720, to sailboats and pontoons, the Chicago In-Water Boat Show will have everything for boaters looking to upgrade.
