New dates were announced for the 41st annual Newport Boat Show in Newport Beach, Calif.

The show, which features the largest collection of big yachts on the West Coast, will return April 3-6 to Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach. Previously reported dates of April 24-27 are incorrect, organizers announced.

The Newport 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 more than 200 pleasure boats, including brand-new models and ocean-tested brokerage yachts that come pre-loaded with sought-after amenities.

The 2014 show is expected to offer more than 400,000 square feet of floating dock exhibits and boardwalk displays, as well as boating accessories, electronics, gear and services.

The 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, which is scheduled for Sept. 18-21.
