Attendees can browse marine engines or meet will skilled brokers to make a purchase on your dream boat. More than 60 exhibitors specializing across the marine spectrum will be at the show.
Show Manager Tim Baker says the water depth of 53 feet, the harbor creates “an in-water playground of the best yachts and biggest vessels showcased on the West Coast.”

Sailing lessons and a dock lounge are just a few things that will be featured this year with more educational and recreational activities to be confirmed soon. Folks can expect other sources of live entertainment as well.
