The 110th annual New York Boat Show opened Wednesday at the Javits Center and runs through Sunday.

Having moved from its prior dates right around New Year’s Day, the show returned to its original time slot in late January this year.

"Kids love to wander around and check out the boats. It's super, super fun. There's tons and tons of activities for them, as well. Dora the Explorer will be here, they can build a toy boat, so it's a family outing," Carrie Waible of the Progressive Insurance New York Boat Show told NY1.

Trade Only Today will be reporting from the show.
