This year’s coverage is expected to be the first of three consecutive years of programming on NBCSN, showcasing the more than 1,500 boats on display and goings-on around the 3 million square feet of exhibition space.

Coverage will be modeled after NBC Sports’ North American International Auto Show Special. A “Best of Show” trophy created by industrial designer Derek Jenkins will go to the most innovative new model design on display.
