The 2017 Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show and Marine Sports Expo will be held at the Craneway Pavilion and Marina Bay Yacht Harbor in Richmond, Calif., in April.

Organizers said the April 6-9 show will include vessels of every size and budget, including sleek racers, multihulls, family cruisers and luxury yachts, both inside and outside on the water.

New this year, dozens of powerboats will be featured in the in-water Motor Yacht Showcase, organizers said. The four-day event will include hundreds of the latest boats, gear, accessories, free seminars, a paddleboard expo, radio-controlled model yacht sailing and interactive activities for young aspiring boaters.

Representatives from dozens of manufacturers, including Dehler Yachts, Bavaria, Beneteau, Catalina, Jeanneau, Lagoon, Hanse, RS, Hobie, Tiara Yachts and Princess Yachts will be at the show to answer questions and provide information.

Equipment and accessory manufacturers such as Spinlock, Gill, Quantum Sails, Raymarine, Harken and New England Ropes will be on hand with their gear.

The show is produced by Sail America, the trade association for the U.S. sailing industry.
