The 36th annual Lido Boat Show, which organizers said has more boats in the water than any other fall show on the West Coast, returns this week to Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach, Calif.

Exhibited will be more than 200 pleasure boats, including brand-new models and brokerage yachts ranging from less than 20 feet to 100 feet. A large selection of 35- to 65-footers will be on display.

“We’re expecting this to be the largest fall show we’ve had in almost a decade,” show producer Duncan McIntosh said in a statement. “We built more dock space than we have in a long time.”

The 2014 iteration of the Lido Boat Show, which runs Thursday through Sunday, will offer more than 400,000 square feet of floating dock exhibits and boardwalk displays and a huge selection of boating accessories, electronics, gear and services.

The Monte Carlo MC4 will make its North American debut at the show.
