New York show opens today

Tens of thousands of boating and fishing enthusiasts are expected to attend the show, which runs through Sunday.

The granddaddy of all boat shows returns today when the doors open for the 111th New York Boat Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan.

Tens of thousands of boating and fishing enthusiasts are expected to attend the show, which runs through Sunday.

The show provides post-holiday deals on boats that include luxury motoryachts, sportfish cruisers, performance boats and sailboats, and marine accessories.

Beyond the array of informational and entertaining side events at National Marine Manufacturers Association shows will be some of the latest models from key manufacturers.

The regional MarineMax dealership, which always has one of the largest displays, will show the latest models and new introductions from Sea Ray, Azimut, Boston Whaler, Scout and Sailfish.

Making their first appearance of 2016 will be the Sea Ray 400 Flybridge and the builder’s complete SLX line; Boston Whaler will be represented by its 280 and 330 Outrage; and the sleek new Scout 420 SFX will be on display.

“We are excited to be able to have such an incredible lineup at this year’s New York Boat Show,” MarineMax regional president Matthew Barbara said in a statement. “Along with some incredible new Sea Rays, we will have an incredible selection of popular models from Boston Whaler, Scout, Sailfish and Azimut to choose from.”
