New boat debuts and product unveilings launch the 2018 Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show Thursday, April 19 through Sunday, April 22 at the Craneway Pavilion and Marina Bay Yacht Harbor in Richmond, CA. Each year thousands of boating enthusiasts anticipate new products as the show continues to attract new exhibitors from around the world.
“I think everyone will be wowed by this year’s new boats and gear,” said West Coast Sailing’s Vice President of Sales, Chris Brown. “The Pacific Boat Show is our favorite show on the West Coast because the timing is perfect to kick off the boating season and San Francisco Bay is an inspiring backdrop for a truly exhilarating show.”
New sail and power boats on display include Beneteau Yachts, Catalina, Corsair Catamaran, Cruisers Yachts, Dehler Yachts, Hanse Yachts, Jeanneau, Riviera, Silver Seas Yachts, Tiara Yachts, and more. Three notable boat debuts:
- Jeanneau America’s Sun Odyssey 440 – fresh from the drawing boards of Philippe Briand and Jean-Marc Piaton, this new generation of Sun Odysseys reflects on-board harmony with a comfortable ergonomic design–from the walk-around decks to the split rigging and gentle companionw On display in the marina.
- The New 49’ Princess Presented by Silver Seas Yachts – combining the latest IPS pod drive system with a modified deep-V hull to provide ease of handling, she is an inspirational boat. With a twin helm seat, convertible L-shaped sofa and generous seating aft, great lighting and a great below deck, the Princess 49 is a boat to tour. On display in the marina.
- The RS Zest Presented by West Coast Sailing – a simple and user-friendly boat and almost maintenance free due to the rotomolded polyethylene construction.
