Newport Beach, CA, May 10, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The 42nd annual Newport Boat Show — the show, presenting the largest collection of big yachts west of the Mississippi — will return to Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach May 14 to 17. This year’s event will offer more than 400,000 square feet of floating dock exhibits and boardwalk displays, plus a huge selection of boating accessories, electronics, gear and services.
The Newport Boat Show is California’s premier big boat and yacht show, presenting more boats in the water than any other event in the West. At the 2015 event, show-goers will be able to step aboard and compare the unique features of more than 200 pleasure boats — including brand-new models, as well as ocean-tested brokerage yachts that come pre-loaded with sought-after amenities.
“We’re seeing the biggest increase in new models and production boat inventory coming to California than at any time during the past decade,” said show producer Duncan McIntosh. “Many, if not, most of these will be coming to the May show.”
The 2015 Newport Boat Show will feature the newest vessels to reach the Western United States. Here are just a few standouts you’ll see at the show:
As the first Horizon V80 in the United States, the Horizon V80 cockpit motoryacht is a must see as it has been designed for the American market, specifically for West Coast boaters. Presented by Orange Coast Yachts, the Horizon V80 cockpit motoryacht is designed to entertain family and friends, whether on board or cruising the open ocean.
Mag Bay Yachts might be the new kid on the block but it is certainly making some big waves in the industry. The beautiful 33-foot center console combines the latest stepped hull technology with traditional yet striking lines. Mag Bay 33’s official debut will be at the Stan Miller Yachts display at the show.
Another welcomed addition to the show is the Bavaria 420 Virtess Coupe, a luxurious 44-foot coupe featuring abundant living space. This will be the first time a Bavaria yacht is on the West Coast, making the vessel a must see event for every boat owner. With three staterooms, a skylight, two heads, a fully equipped galley, an entertainment center, and innovative movable furniture in the cockpit, the Bavaria 420 Virtess Coupe provides classic lines, modernity and the utmost level of comfort.
The Canadian Electric Boat Company will have two of its electric boats on display, South Coast Yachts will be exhibiting six new Beneteaus and a Lagoon 450 catamaran.
Alexander Marine, as the new Pursuit dealer, will have three new Pursuits on display along with an Ocean Alexander 80.

Guests will also find a whole host of exhibitors both shoreside and in the water showcasing innovative products and services that make owning and operating a big boat more enjoyable.
Boating services will also be showcased at the annual show, including marine financing and insurance. Three standup paddleboard exhibitors will be on site — both on land and on water — for guests to ask questions and observe the latest boards.
