The 11th annual San Diego Sunroad Boat Show returns to Harbor Island's East End, Jan. 23-26, with about 185 boats of all sizes on display on both land and water. This Boat Show is now the largest on the West Coast. With everything from trailerable and inflatable boats, to kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, even sail and powerboats.

Show hours are noon to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

It's a great chance to tour both new and used power and sailboats in every price range, style, and size. 

One of this year's highlights is a sleek gray-hulled Italian-built 82-foot Pershing motoryacht capable of cruising at 50 knots and is being called  "a missile disguised as a yacht,"  

During the show, the pavilion will host seminars on subjects including boating in Mexico, presented by representatives from the Mexican Marinas Association,  visual distress signals, anchoring tips and techniques and offshore sail repair. Check the show website for details.

The show also offers tented exhibits featuring over 100 vendors offering widely ranging marine services and equipment, electronics, nautical products, boating supplies, and accessories.

Show tickets are $15, with children 12 and under free. Active-duty military, police, EMTs and fire personnel with ID are free Thursday and Friday.

Paid parking is available adjacent to the marina on Harbor Island Drive. Several vendors will offer varied food menus. Nearby, Island Prime/C Level Lounge and Coasterra Restaurant provide alternate dining options.
