Fresh off the Miami shows, the regional New Jersey Boat Sale & Expo returns Thursday through Sunday at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center in Edison.

The show features boats exhibited by more than 30 of the Garden State’s top dealers. More than 70 boat brands will be represented, according to the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey.

“Being able to compare various boats in a comfortable setting and speaking with all of the dealers is a great help in getting to the right decision that fits your needs and your budget,” MTA/NJ executive director Melissa Danko said in a statement. “This is especially helpful for the first-time buyer, who has questions and is searching for good answers.”

Also showcased will be accessories, services and seminars. Union, N.J.-based Interlux, a presenting sponsor, will host Antifouling 101, a free seminar to help boat owners choose and use antifouling paints, at 1 p.m. Saturday.

“The choice and use of antifouling paints is one of the most common — and complicated — questions boat owners ask us at boat shows, online and through our technical service help line,” Interlux North America marketing manager Jim Seidel said in a statement. “Our Antifouling 101 seminar is designed to expose the many myths and demystify the many misunderstandings about antifouling paints.”
