Boatoberfest, the first of what are expected to be annual shows, will be held Oct. 24-27 on Clear Lake in Texas.
The festival will include a sale featuring boats in and out of the water and ranging in size from 15 to 70 feet.
Boats already booked into the show include the all-new Sabre, Back Cove and Hanse with JK3; the brand-new Jeanneau 50DS from Texas Coast Yachts; the new DeFever 50 with Jay Bettis & Co.; and the never-before-seen-in-Texas Mainship from HSH Yacht Sales, along with Beneteau’s Oceanis 37 and 41 from Sea Lake Yacht Sales.
Meyer Yacht Services will bring a brand-new category of fishing boat for Texas, the Ocean Skiff 27 by Ocean Master, and Suncoast Marine Works will show three new boats from the Renegade line.
In-water boats will be featured on the docks at the MarineMax Marina, and more than 100 vendors will display fishing and boating gear, technologies, products, services, accessories, gifts and apparel alongside boats on trailers, RVs and a selection of new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Trucks at Endeavour Marina.
