The LA Harbor Boat Show Returns to San Pedro
New and Brokerage Boats will Dock at the Cabrillo Way Marina in Los Angeles Harbor
September 20-23, 2018
LOS ANGELES (August 9, 2018) – San Pedro will again host The LA Harbor Boat Show, the annual in-water maritime event that celebrates the Southern California boating lifestyle. Taking place Thursday, September 20 through Sunday, September 23 at Cabrillo Way Marina (2845 Miner St., Berth 43, San Pedro, CA 90731), the LA Harbor Boat Show will showcase scores of dealers, vessel types, new and brokerage models and exhibitors; plus, attendees can take advantage of boater education and live entertainment.
From trawlers, cruisers and sportfishers to sailboats, catamarans and motoryachts to tenders and paddle craft such as kayaks and paddleboards, The LA Harbor Boat Show will have it all and host more than 60 exhibitors with specialties across the entire maritime gamut: sailing lessons, guided cruising trips to Mexico, outboard motors, onboard accessories, marine financing, yacht brokerage services and more.
Los Angeles Harbor serves more than 22 million local customers yearly and reaches an upward of $300 billion in annual trade. The iconic Ports O’ Call Village is currently undergoing a $100 million renovation, adding a new element to one of the busiest container ports in the world. When completed, the new “San Pedro Public Market” will feature dining, shopping and entertainment, all set to the industrial backdrop of one of the world’s busiest shipping ports.
A central point in the Los Angeles coastline, LA Harbor is also the closest point to Catalina and is easily accessible from throughout the Southland. “Whether you’re coming from Inland Empire, Ventura County or Orange County, reaching LA Harbor is about an hour’s drive,” says Show Manager Tim Baker.
During the weekend, Cabrillo Way Marina doubles in size, its docks filled with boats at various price points and geared toward every boater’s experience level. “Dealers are on deck and are ready to play matchmaker between boat and buyer,” says Baker. “Plus, expanding from 2017, we have more than 32,000 square feet of dock space, shuttle service, and ample parking for our guests.”
“This is an exciting time for LA Harbor,” says Baker. “Along with the notoriety of Los Angeles Harbor, it also features a water depth of 53 feet, creating an in-water playground of the best yachts and biggest vessels showcased on the West Coast.”
