More than 300 new and more than 60 brokerage powerboats are being moved into Ego Alley and St. Mary's Cove today in historic downtown Annapolis for the U.S. Powerboat Show, which opens Thursday.

The in-water show, now in its 44th year, draws nearly 40,000 visitors and includes a variety of vessels: small ski boats, center consoles, express cruisers and luxury motoryachts.

On land, hundreds of exhibitors will display all types of boating services and products, including boat gear, clothing, accessories, electronics, life rafts, navigational aids, radios, water sports equipment and fishing gear. There are quality items, such as outdoor apparel, shoes, hats and waterfront lifestyle goods, at boat show prices.

"The boats range from 8-foot inflatables to 70-foot bluewater cruisers," Annapolis Boat Shows president and general manager Paul Jacobs said in a statement. "We have a huge assortment of every boat style imaginable; tug trawlers, Down East and picnic-style boats, weekend cruisers, not to mention a large selection of center consoles, ski boats and fishing platforms."
