The Southern California Boat Show will debut on Thursday in San Pedro, Calif., featuring hundreds of boats at Cabrillo Way Marina, which underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation.

The four-day show will continue through Sunday. It will feature nearly 200 boats, ranging from entry-level family cruisers to yachts, and marine accessories.

Owned and produced by The Duncan McIntosh Co., the show also will feature a kids’ zone, seminars and on-water lessons for beginning sailors. San Pedro Brewing Co. will host a craft beer garden, and the show will have food trucks offering gourmet tacos, sushi, deli items and Mediterranean fare.

MarineMax San Diego will display the award-winning Aquila 44 power catamaran at the show. The Aquila 44 was named Best New Multihull 40-49 Feet in the Active Interest Media Marine Group Editors’ Choice Awards, which annually recognize boatbuilding achievement in several categories.

Along with the Aquila 44, MarineMax will display a new Azimut 60 Flybridge, an Azimut Magellano 53 and a Galeon 445 HTS.
