The 34th annual Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota will be held April 15-17 at Marina Jack in downtown Sarasota, Fla.

Hundreds of exhibitors will showcase an outstanding selection of boats, ranging from motoryachts and fishing boats to cruisers, runabouts and personal watercraft. Also on display will be a full range of marine electronics and products, as well as paddleboards, canoes, kayaks and other on-the-water toys.

This year's show, which will be the largest it has ever been in terms of the number of boats and exhibitors, will feature an impressive collection of new boats and motoryachts never before seen on the Gulf Coast, including the Carver 37 and 40, Cobalt 40, Galeon 50, Hatteras 45, Ocean Alexander 85, Protector 30, Sea Hunter 32 and 37, Viking 75, and the Wajer & Wajer 38, among many other new and brokerage boats.

The largest yacht on display will be a 101-foot Hargrave motoryacht on display with Galati Yacht Sales.

"This market attracts many buyers looking for new boats and the Suncoast Boat Show delivers a great selection," Chris Fleming, exhibitor sales development with Show Management, the company that owns and produces the show, said in a statement. "Over the last several years, it has earned a reputation as the leading boutique boat show on the Gulf Coast."

The show is presented, managed and produced by Show Management and sponsored by Budweiser, Gosling's Rum, Sarasota Magazine, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and WWSB ABC7.
