YachtFest San Diego starts Thursday

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, YachtFest San Diego, which runs Thursday through Sunday, will feature more than $60 million worth of yachts, along with specialized planes, cars and luxury accessories at San Diego's Shelter Island.

Presented by San Diego Marine Exchange, the show will feature more than 34 yachts - ranging from 48 to 156 feet - including YachtFest's 2008 "Best in Show" winner Piano Bar, a 156-foot superyacht built by Picchiotti.

"Like 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,' attendees will get to tour superyachts featuring toys and accessories like Jacuzzis, entertainment centers, marble and fine art, scuba gear, kayaks and more," said Doug Sharp, of Sharp Design and YachtFest Board Chair, in a statement. "This year's YachtFest will have an outstanding display of quality boats known for their aesthetic and technical design, as well as a high level of craftsmanship."

YachtFest sponsors include San Diego Marine Exchange, Landmark Aviation, Sharp Design, Fraser Yachts Worldwide, Driscoll Boat Works, Wright & L'Estrange, Marine Group Boat Works, Bartell Hotels, Shelter Island Marina, Knight & Carver, Mercedes-Benz and Port of San Diego.
