The 2016 Bay Bridge Boat Show is expected to the biggest since 2008 when it opens April 15 in Stevensville on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

"With a month yet to go we are seeing tremendous interest, an increase in ticket sales, a larger footprint and a surge in new exhibitors, as well as additional space requests from our returning ones," Annapolis Boat Shows president and general manager Paul Jacobs said in a statement.

An expanded demo dock at Bay Bridge Marina will feature at least two dozen new model boats, as well as outboard engines. Dealers will conduct demonstrations and sea trials from the show.

More than 200 boats ranging from seven to 70 feet will be on display. The show will run from April 15-17.
