For Immediate Release

2025 Northern California Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show

June 7, 2024

The California Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA) announces the 2025 show will be held May 15 – 18, 2024

Sunday May 19th concluded the final day of the CYBA Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show at Westpoint Harbor in Redwood City, California. In its second year of CYBA production, the show is gaining traction and in a much better position to be a main stay for the Northern California boating industry, California and the CYBA membership. The association is looking forward to its third show year in May of 2025.

This year, the show featured vessels of all types, including sail, power and electric. Several of the dealers took advantage of the show to debut certain models to the public for the very first time. Booth exhibits offered vendors from up and down the state that of course included many of the local vendors known to the Nor Cal boaters and enthusiasts alike.

The grand opening of the onsite Club at Westpoint and the restaurant Hurrica provided relaxing over the water views to those that took advantage of the facilities. Not only during the show but many exhibitors and patrons alike were seen dining and conversing long after show hours. A change to the position of the booth exhibitor tents was received with great reviews. Given last year’s weather and the location of them then, the south side of the marina proved to be more aesthetic and integrated as more of a part of the show’s entrance; more so being on hard and stable grounds the area was prepared for any weather issues faced. The rain experienced last year never came. In fact, all four days of the show were treated to the beautiful Mediterranean weather that Westpoint Harbor is known for.

Show Manager Jim Behun started the opening day of the show providing a substantial amount of knowledgeable information while being interviewed by NBC Bay Area News. Jim walked the crew around the docks while giving information on many of the boats they passed. The segment aired during the show’s morning and repeated several times during the day during other program segments. The link was shared and did very well on all the social media applications where it was viewed. 

Overall success of this year’s show was based upon the efforts put forward by the CYBA show manager Jim Behun, Boat Show Chairman Mark P. White and his committee along with the help and support of the Sausalito Boat Show Manager, Mitch Perkins. DeeDee Taft of Spin Communications proved to be an invaluable source of assistance in all her promotions, and the CYBA looks forward to having both her and Mitch involved again in 2025.
