Newport Beach, CA — The 37th Annual Lido Boat Show – the biggest fall boat show in the West – opens Thursday, Sept. 17 at Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach and runs through Sept. 20. Along with the West’s biggest array of large yachts, the Lido Boat Show will present a wide selection of mid-sized boats, more than 200 powerboats and sailboats and provide visitors a first glance at some of the newest boats on the market.
“We’re seeing the net effect of an improving economy with more new boat models entering this month’s show,” said show producer Duncan McIntosh. “This promises to be the largest Lido Boat Show in nearly a decade.”
New to the show is the Lido Food Fest, which will run all four days of the show, and will feature delectable entrees from Slapfish, Cucina Alessa and Bluewater Grill. Enjoy food from local restaurants and vendors as you walk along the boat show docks.
Attendees can inspect and compare motoryachts, sportfishers, family cruisers, sailboats, long-range trawlers and sport yachts from top U.S. and international builders, represented by the West Coast’s top boat dealers and yacht brokers. The show will also feature a selection of new models making their debut, along with a remarkable selection of boating gear and accessories, marine electronics, engines, generators and yacht services.
