The South West International Boat Show, the largest in-water boat show in the Southwest, will return in April.

The South West International Boat Show, the largest in-water boat show in the Southwest, will return in April.

The annual spring show will be held April 6-9 at South Shore Harbour Marina on Clear Lake, League City, Texas.

Organizers said the show will feature boats ranging from 10 to 100 feet, freshwater and saltwater, ready for boarding and viewing. Pre-season specials and dealer incentive programs will be available on many models.

“This is a perfect venue to see these incredible vessels up close and in their element,” show president Peter Bryant said in a statement. “Being able to see how a yacht or sailboat performs in the water allows interested buyers to learn so much more about the vessel.”

Onshore, live music will provide entertainment and more than 200 vendors will offer a variety of services and products for the boating and outdoor lifestyle, including fishing gear, apparel and outdoor equipment, in addition to a full range of marine electronics, accessories and hardware from top industry names.

Dealers and manufacturers will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.

Texas boat debuts at the show will include models from Cape Fear Catamarans of the South East; the Taiwan- built Horizon PC60 Powercat; the Aquila 44 Powercat; and a new generation of RIBs from the Italian manufacturer ZAR Formenti.
