The Seattle Boat Show announced its seminar lineup, which includes 35 new topics, for the January show.

Organizers said Boat Show University classes have been a draw for visitors. The programs feature nautical experts such as Nigel Calder, Lee Chesneau, Mike Beemer, Kevin Monahan, Sam Landsman, Margaret Pommert, Larry Brandt and Mark Bunzel.

The three-hour programs are priced at $39 apiece, with a special package that includes four three-hour courses and five days of boat show admission for $139 — a savings of nearly $50.

Daylong expert training sessions during the week are priced at $99 and cover topics such as Cruising Tips for Women; Diesel and Electrical Troubleshooting; and Marine Weather and Cruising. Other courses include how to enjoy cruising in the San Juan and Gulf islands, Desolation Sound, the Broughtons and Alaska, with lots of practical tips.

The show, at two locations — indoors at CenturyLink Field Event Center and afloat at South Lake Union — opens Jan. 29 and runs through Feb. 6.
