The boat show is a collaborative effort by All Seasons Marine Works, Beacon Point Marine, Catalano and Sons, Diamond Marine, Harborside Yacht Sales, MarineMax and Norwest Marine. The group said after two successful years, it plans to make the show a regularly scheduled event each spring fro many years to come.

Power boat manufacturers that will be represented at the show include Azimut Yachts, Boston Whaler, Bristol Harbor, Chaparral, Chris Craft, Everglades, Grady White, Hydra Sport, Parker, Meridian Yachts, Monterey, Robalo, Sailfish, Sea Fox, Sea Ray, Sea Hunt and Steigercraft. More than 80 boats ranging from 22 to 52 feet in length will be available, including both new and pre-owned brokerage boats.
