The German-built Dehler 46 was on display to consumers for the first time in North America at the Strictly Sail Pacific boat show at Jack London Square in Oakland, Calif.

Organizers said thousands of people attended the show, which began Thursday and wrapped up on Sunday. Also making a West Coast debut was the Hanse 455, a 45-foot German-built sailing yacht.

The 2015 Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show, the West Coast’s largest all-sailboat show, featured new sailboats, gear, accessories, hardware, more than 90 free seminars, hands-on workshops and free sailboat rides.

The show was produced by Sail America, the trade association established in 1990 for the U.S. sailing industry and dedicated to promoting the health and growth of sailing.
