The San Diego Sunroad Boat Show sailsback to San Diego this January 24-27, 2013. Hosted by the Sunroad Resort Marina on Harbor Island, the annual tradition will feature land and in-water exhibits for boaters of every age. It’s a party on San Diego Bay!
The biggest boat show in San Diego will be expanding this year with an in-water display of more than 100 new and pre-cruised sailboats and motor yachts, starting at 35-feet up to a 122-foot vessel, called the “Shogun,” the largest boat in the show.
Attendees will also be able to enjoy free boat rides – free sailing lessons by Seaforth Boat Rentals, free rides on a new line-up of inflatables by West Marine, and free rides on an 18-foot Electric Boat by San Diego Comfort Cruise.
In addition to the tremendous boats, ranging in massive size from 80- to 120-feet, there will also be a plethora of marine vendors and electronics with the latest nautical products and services, live music, as well as food and beverages for attendees to enjoy a day on San Diego Bay.
A variety of seminars will also take place throughout the weekend, including a course presented by Capt. Pat Rains on “Cruising Mexico 101 for Sail & Power.” Capt. Rains’ program will take place both Saturday and Sunday (time TBD), tied into the popular release of her new book of the same name.
And for the first time ever, there will be pet adoptions taking place throughout the show, hosted by the San Diego Humane Society, Thursday through Sunday (Jan. 24-27). Adopt-a-Dog and have him/her help you pick out your family boat!
