San Diego show lures yachts

ADVERTISEMENT

The 10th annual San Diego International Boat Show will include superyachts for the first time, thanks to a newly-formed partnership with two superyacht groups: the US Superyacht Association and the San Diego Superyacht Association.

 

 

New superyacht-related events this year include a golf tournament, an America’s Cup captain’s briefing and a VIP cocktail party. The events are for owners, captains and crew.  

 

 

“In recent years, we’ve been successful in achieving our goal to attract as many large yachts as possible to San Diego Bay,” said Kate Pearson, president of the San Diego Superyacht Association. “These vessels not only bring prestige to our region but each one generates a considerable economic impact to the many businesses, large and small, that provide marine-related products and services on a year-round basis.”

 

 

The show, set for June 20-23, takes place at the San Diego Sheraton Hotel & Marina and Spanish Landing Park. It is owned and produced by the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
