The St. Petersburg Power and Sailboat Show, the largest in-water boat show on Florida's Gulf Coast, is set to take place Dec. 3-6 at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts Mahaffey Theater Yacht Basin and Albert Whitted Park in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Entering its 38th year, the boat show offers four days of family fun and will feature a display of powerboats, sailboats and the latest marine electronics and accessories.

Here are the top 10 new boats by size that will be on display at this year's show:

76 Monte Carlo, Viage Group; 75 Viking Motor Yacht, Galati Yacht Sales; 75 Prestige, Galati Yacht Sales; 65 Maritimo, Galati Yacht Sales; 62 Viking, Galati Yacht Sales;

Organizers also will offer A Night in the Lap of Luxury, during which couples can stay aboard a 50-foot sailboat for a night during the show. Disembarking from the boat show, guests will enjoy a private sunset cruise for two overlooking the Tampa Bay skyline and a toast to the special event with their favorite wine or champagne and a basket full of gourmet treats.

After the sunset cruise, the yacht will berth at the Vinoy Marina, where the lucky couples will have access to all amenities at the Vinoy Renaissance Resort. On the following morning, the captain will return to the boat to comfortably cruise back to the boat show.
