The 42nd annual Newport Boat Show will return May 14-17 to Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach, Calif.

The Newport show is one of the largest in-water collections of big boats and yachts west of the Mississippi River. Show-goers will be able to step aboard and compare the features of more than 200 boats, including brand-new models and ocean-tested brokerage yachts that come pre-loaded with sought-after amenities.

Located at Lido Marina Village, this year’s event will offer more than 400,000 square feet of floating dock exhibits and boardwalk displays and a selection of boating accessories, electronics, gear and services.

“We’re seeing the biggest increase in new models and production-boat inventory coming to California than at any time during the past decade,” show producer Duncan McIntosh told the Log, a California boating and fishing publication owned by the Duncan McIntosh Co. “Many, if not most of these, will be coming to the May show.”

Visit the Log for a sneak peek at some of the West Coast model debuts slated to be on display.
