The show will feature Gulf Coast dealers who will display hundreds of boats, including personal watercraft, center consoles, cruisers, sportfishing boats and motoryachts.

The show also offers a selection of paddleboards, canoes and kayaks. Exhibit tents will feature marine electronics, products and accessories. The show also will have on-site restaurants and free downtown parking.

"We are proud to be a part of Sarasota's boating and downtown community," Show Management vice president of consumer marketing Brett Keating said in a statement.

"For more than 33 years, the show has offered a great place on the water to get together with friends and enjoy a bit of the boating lifestyle, all while shopping and comparing notable brands side by side in one convenient location,” Keating said.

Marina Jack offers fresh seafood and other dining specialties at its recently renovated on-site restaurants, which feature panoramic views of the marina, downtown, Sarasota Bay, Big Pass and the Gulf of Mexico.
