PROGRESSIVE® NEW ENGLAND BOAT SHOW POSTPONED
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The health and safety of everyone involved in producing, attending and exhibiting at our shows is of utmost importance. Following a thorough analysis of the local market and guided by our safety-first principles, we have decided, at this point, to postpone the Progressive Insurance New England Boat Show scheduled for Feb 6-14, 2021 to the Spring. Please stay tuned for more details and confirmed dates in the coming weeks.
To that end, our team will continue to closely monitor the situation in Boston and work with federal, state, and local authorities to execute a safe and successful event this spring. We will be implementing a comprehensive health and safety plan, similar to retail environments, which will include, but not limited to, mandatory wear of face coverings for all participants, contactless registration and ticketing, increased sanitation, temperature checks and much more.
Stay tuned! We’ll also launch a new program soon connecting you with the latest products and all your favorite boating brands at the best prices so you can create more memories on the water.

Bertram Press Release
Please welcome Crosby Yacht Yard and Smith Yacht Sales to the Bertram Family.

In addition, the company will soon expand this range of offshore family and fish boats to include a comprehensive lineup of outboard powered models.
According to Tommy Thompson, Bertram’s V.P. of Sales, “The introduction of the new outboard portfolio will certainly allow Bertram to increase its North American presence by giving boaters an outboard option that lives up to the Bertram ride and quality that they have come to expect.
Gregory Egan of Crosby Yacht Yard in Osterville MA remarked, “We are both honored and enthused by our new affiliation with Bertram Yachts; a brand with an historic past; and most importantly, an exciting future. Bertram’s resurgence since their acquisition by the Gavio Group in 2015 has been remarkable and fast paced. Family boaters and fishermen universally recognize the iconic Bertram Yacht brand name and its reputation for the highest quality construction paired with exceptional underway performances. We are excited to be able to offer all of these models to boaters in our area of the northeast”.
Crosby Yacht Yard’s long standing association with Smith Yacht Sales and it’s locations in Hingham, MA and Newington, NH will serve to continue and expand the team approach for providing the region with professional sales and service. Eric Smith, General Manager of Smith Yacht Sales remarked, “As a longtime Bertram owner and fan, I could not be happier or more excited about this opportunity to bring the incredible Bertram line of yachts to the New England area.”
