The Lido Yacht Expo, held Sept. 24-27 in Newport Beach, Calif., reported a 9 percent increase in attendance this year, organizers said.

"We're very pleased with the way this year's show turned out," said Duncan McIntosh, producer of the show. "Even though the number of vessels was down, attendance was very strong."

Show organizers could not immediately be reached for comment on specific attendance figures.

The show produced good results on the sales end, according to a statement.

John Buettner, of Stan Miller Yachts in Long Beach, Calif., said he had four offers signed at the show, three of which have already been accepted. Bob Koepple, of Bob Koepple Yacht Sales in Marina del Rey, Calif., said he wrote offers on all but one of the vessels he had on display.

The show is produced by Duncan McIntosh Co. Inc., publisher of The Log, Boating World and Sea magazines, and producer of the Newport (Calif.) Boat Show.
