The Los Angeles Boat Show has enjoyed a resurgence the past two years.

The Los Angeles Boat Show runs Thursday through Sunday at the Fairplex in Pomona

Celebrating its 63rd year, the Los Angeles Boat Show will feature ski boats, deck boats, personal watercraft, pontoons, sport fishing boats, runabouts, cabin cruisers, dinghies, inflatables, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and marine accessories.

“There will be pre-season discounts and incentives at the show,” said Los Angeles Boat Show CEO Duncan McIntosh in a statement. “Buyers are encouraged to take stock now, before the summer boating season begins and there is a backlog of orders.”

According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, California’s recreational boating has an annual economic impact of more than $8.9 billion, which includes indirect, direct and induced spending. Los Angeles plays a role in supporting strongest sales the state has seen in a decade.

In addition, the NMMA reports that as the sixth largest economy in the world, California represents an average of $614 million in annual sales of new boats, engines, and marine accessories.

“We are fortunate that California calls many of the top boating manufacturers home,” said McIntosh. “Centurion in Central California to Shockwave Boats in Corona, are just two of the boat builders who will be at the Los Angeles Boat Show.”
