Organizers say the spring South West International Boat Show is the region’s largest in-water show.

The in-water South West International Boat Show will hold an inaugural fall show Sept. 23-25 at South Shore Harbour Marina on Clear Lake in League City, Texas, located between Houston and the beaches of Galveston Island.

Like the annual spring show, the fall event will feature boats ranging in size from 10 to more than 100 feet, freshwater and saltwater, ready for boarding and viewing.

“This is a perfect time to see these incredible vessels up close and in their element,” South West International Boat Show president Peter Bryant said in a statement. “Being able to see how a yacht or sailboat performs in water allows interested buyers to learn so much more about the vessel than seeing it on a trailer or showroom floor can ever do.”

Onshore, live music will provide entertainment. Children can participate in remote-control boat races, and more than 200 vendors will offer services and products for the boating and outdoor lifestyle, including fishing gear, engines, apparel and outdoor equipment.

The show also will feature marine electronics, sailing gear, accessories and hardware.

Show highlights will include on-water boat-handling lessons for all experience levels, taught by Coast Guard-licensed captains.

A seminar program, featuring free hourly seminars for boat show visitors, will be offered during all three days of the show. They cover a variety of topics, including visiting Mexico by private boat; financing a yacht; small-engine maintenance; understanding marine weather; and women on the water.

The event also offers the “Let the Fin Begin” Party on Sept. 24, sponsored by LandShark Lager.
