San Diego yacht show set for September

YachtFest 2009, scheduled for Sept. 16-20 at the Island Palms Hotel and Marina in San Diego, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

Presented by San Diego Marine Exchange, the show will feature more than $60 million worth of boats, yacht, superyachts and luxury cars. Attendees can also check out the latest in yachting products and gain exclusive access to luxury goods.

With San Diego recently dubbed the "new superyacht capital" by CNN, and new and improved megayacht facilities, as well as the wave of affluence in the city - YachtFest organizers anticipate greater interest in builder, charter, fractional and brokerage yachts.

"YachtFest is the foremost place in the Western United States to buy, sell or charter one of these premium yachts; not to mention one of the classiest venues to step aboard a glamorous first-class superyacht," said Doug Sharp of Sharp Design and chairman of the YachtFest Board.
