The Suncoast Boat Show opens Friday and runs through Sunday at Marina Jack’s in Sarasota, Fla.

Hundreds of exhibitors will showcase a variety of boats, from motoryachts and fishing boats to cruisers, runabouts and personal watercraft. Also on display at the show will be electronics and other equipment.

MarineMax announced it will debut the Sea Ray L590 and Galeon 420 Fly at the show.

“All Galeon Yachts combine old-world craftsmanship with today’s technologies, and the 420 Fly is no exception,” said MarineMax Venice store manager Aaron Kramer in a statement. “Guests of the Suncoast Boat Show will be able to be some of the first in North America to see her exceptional value.”

The Sea Ray L590 has been popular among show-goers, so MarineMax Sarasota store manager Jason LeFevre recommends making reservation to tour the yacht.

Hinckley Yachts will launch its Talaria 34 Runabout at the show, and will also display the Talaria 43 and the Picnic Boat MKIII.

Hunt Yachts will show its new 32 center console and the Harrier 25.
