The 32nd annual Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota, Fla., will take place April 25-27 at Marina Jack, which is at 2 Marina Plaza in downtown Sarasota.

Gulf Coast dealers will display hundreds of boats, including personal watercraft, center consoles, cruisers, sportfishers and motoryachts. The display will include the largest yacht ever displayed at the show, the 110-foot Broward motoryacht Entrepreneur, which will be available for sale and charter.

For those looking for a smaller, more affordable way to get out on the water, the show brings a great selection of paddleboards, canoes and kayaks. In addition, exhibit tents will enhance the show experience with a full range of marine electronics, products and accessories.

With onsite restaurants, plenty of downtown parking and convenient access, the show is one of the Gulf Coast's premier boating events.

"Boaters from around the region have enjoyed this annual event for more than 30 years," Steve Sheer, director of advertising, sponsorships and promotions at Show Management, the company that manages and produces the show, said in a statement. “The show offers a great place to get together with friends by the water and enjoy a bit of the boating lifestyle, all while shopping and comparing their favorite brands side by side."
