The San Diego show will feature about 140 boats for sale, as well as nautical gear, gadgets and accessories. It also will have an expanded selection of 80-foot and larger superyachts that was created in partnership with the U.S. Superyacht Association and the San Diego Superyacht Association.

Organized by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, the show also will provide learning opportunities with a sailing simulator, Try It Cove’s stand-up paddleboarding and Discover Boating’s hands-on skills training featuring one-, two- and three-hour on-water clinics.

New to the show this year is the Sportfishing Pavilion.
