The seventh annual Jersey Shore Boat Sale & Expo is scheduled for Sept. 18-20 at FirstEnergy Park in Lakewood.

Organized by the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey, the show offers boats and marine accessories from state retailers. Hundreds of boats, including family cruisers, express sportboats, center consoles, canyon runners, ski and pontoon boats, canoes, kayaks and personal watercraft, will be on display.

Along with boats representing 60 major and regional brands, a boater's marketplace will offer gear, accessories, marine equipment and services. New Jersey has coastal, bay, lake and river boating waters, so representatives from many marinas also will be at the show.

The family-friendly theme includes attractions for young skippers in the Kids Cove, including crafts, boating safety, Reclam the Bay and on-field experiences sponsored by the Lakewood BlueClaws baseball team and the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium.

"Last year's show featured over 300 new and pre-owned boats in over 130,000 square feet," MTANJ executive director Melissa Danko said in a statement. "We are expecting the show to grow yet again this year, with new dealers and new boat lines joining in for this great venue. This is one of the most convenient and affordable places to shop, get on board and enjoy hundreds of boats and boating accessories."
