The 29th annual Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota, Fla., will take place April 15-17 at Marina Jack, No. 2 Marina Plaza.

Hundreds of boats from the Gulf Coast's leading boatbuilders and dealers will be on display, along with a range of marine electronics, products and accessories.

The show's new location at Marina Jack boasts a floating-dock permanent marina with a deepwater harbor and no bridge access to the Gulf. Accessory exhibit tents and boats on land will enhance the show experience, organizers say.

"We are extremely excited and optimistic about relaunching the 29th annual Suncoast Boat Show, presented and managed by Show Management," said Dane Graziano, COO and senior vice president of Show Management, in a statement.

"This major boat show has important regional economic impact and signals the recovery of the marine industry as the economy continues to improve and demand increases. This show in its beautiful location is truly a jewel among boat shows."
