The 13th annual San Diego International Boat Show will take place June 16-19 during Father’s Day weekend, when more than 200 boats are expected at Spanish Landing Park East on Harbor Island.

The boat show’s in-water display area will increase by 120 feet with the addition of 50 boats.

It’s the first San Diego show since the National Marine Manufacturers Association sold it, along with the Los Angeles Boat Show, to the Duncan McIntosh Co. in March. The company also owns additional West Coast boat shows and several publications.

The NMMA subsequently closed its NMMA West offices.

Several vessels will be make their West Coast debuts at the show, according to McIntosh-owned newspaper The Log — including the Jeanneau 54 by Cruising Yachts, the Galeon 445 HTS by MarineMax and the Carver C37 Coupe by Denison Yachts.
