The Southern California Boat Show, which made its debut last fall, is returning to offer sailboats and powerboats, accessories, electronics, engines, gear and services.

The four-day Sept. 28-Oct. 1 event will feature Los Angeles gourmet food trucks, a beer garden and daily interactive seminars on a variety of topics.

Boat offerings will include trawlers, cruisers, sportfishing models, sailboats, catamarans, motoryachts, dockage, tenders and paddleboards.

The SoCal Boat Show has expanded its exhibitor base and educational roster by accommodating more than 60 exhibitors.

“The SoCal Boat Show is an all-in-one event for any present or future boat owner,” show CEO Duncan McIntosh said in a statement. “In addition to growing the number of boats and increased bulk dry land space to 32,000 square feet, we also added personalized concierge services, including a guest dock and water taxis for this year’s show.”

Los Angeles Harbor is one of the busiest container ports in the world, serving more than 22 million local customers yearly and reaching upwards of $300 billion in annual trade.

“Along with the notoriety of Los Angeles Harbor, it also features a water depth of 53 feet, creating an in-water playground of the best yachts and biggest vessels showcased on the West Coast,” McIntosh said.
