NEWPORT BEACH – Mark your calendars: the 41st annual Newport Boat Show, the show, presenting the largest collection of big yachts west of the Mississippi, will return to Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach April 3-6, 2014.
The Newport Boat Show is California’s premier big boat and yacht show, presenting more boats in the water than any other event in the West. At the 2014 event, show-goers will be able to step aboard and compare the unique features of more than 200 pleasureboats — including brand-new models, as well as ocean-tested brokerage yachts that come pre-loaded with sought-after amenities.
Over the past four decades, the Newport Boat Show has become well known as a one-stop shopping experience for boating enthusiasts and potential buyers. The 2014 show is expected to offer more than 400,000 square feet of floating dock exhibits and boardwalk displays, plus a huge selection of boating accessories, electronics, gear and services.
This year’s show will feature the newest vessels to reach the Western United States and will feature a whole host of exhibitors both shoreside and in the water to showcase innovative products and services that make owning and operating a big boat more enjoyable.
The Newport Boat Show is produced by the Duncan McIntosh Co. Inc., publisher of Sea Magazine, Boating World, The Log Newspaper, FishRap and Editor & Publisher, and producer of the Lido Boat Show — scheduled for Sept. 18-21, 2014.
