The 34th annual Suncoast Boat Show in Sarasota takes place Friday, April 15 to Sunday, April 17 at Marina Jack in downtown Sarasota. Hundreds of exhibitors will showcase an outstanding selection of boats, ranging from motor yachts and fishing boats to cruisers, runabouts and personal watercraft. 

This year's show, which will be the largest it has ever been in terms of the number of boats and exhibitors, will feature an impressive collection of new boats and motor yachts never before seen on the Gulf Coast, including the Carver 37 and 40, Cobalt 40, Galeon 50, Hatteras 45, Ocean Alexander 85, Protector 30, Sea Hunter 32 and 37, Viking 75, and the Wajer & Wajer 38, among many other new and brokerage boats. The largest yacht on display will be a 101-foot Hargrave motor yacht on display with Galati Yacht Sales.

"This market attracts many buyers looking for new boats and the Suncoast Boat Show delivers a great selection," said Chris Fleming, exhibitor sales development with Show Management, the company that owns and produces the show. "Over the last several years, it has earned a reputation as the leading boutique boat show on the Gulf Coast."
