“The 2016 show will provide an excellent opportunity for boaters and those interested in the boating lifestyle to learn more about the industries newest boats and accessories, in the best retail environment of the year,” says Show Manager, Eric Nicholl. “The West Coast offers unparalleled boating experiences, and we are pleased to provide attendees with all of the information and gear required in navigating the beautiful coastlines, lakes and rivers.”

New for this year is The Lower Deck, the show’s central socializing hub, and best place for guests to  plan their show experience. From navigating the exciting lineup of the newest and most innovative boats and accessory displays, or selecting which of the 100+ entertaining and informative seminars to take in, The Lower Deck is the best meeting point to map out the day, spend time with friends and draft memorable boating excursions. The Lower Deck social atmosphere will be solidified by the presence of the highly anticipated feature guest and iconic actor, Ted Lange. Hailed as “the world’s most famous bartender”, Lange, an American actor, director and screenwriter is best known for his role as Isaac Washington, in the 1970s hit TV series, The Love Boat. Lange will be onsite socializing with boat-lovers, entertaining guests and talking about his signature cocktail “The Isaac.”
