The South West International Boat Show introduces a new fall show coming this September to Texas. Southwest International Boat Show

For the first time, the South West International Boat Show, the largest in-water boat show in the Southwest, and the premier sail and power show for new and pre-owned vessels, will hold a fall show September 23-25, 2016, at South Shore Harbour Marina on Clear Lake, League City, Texas, located between Houston and the beaches of Galveston Island.

Like the annual Spring show, the fall event will feature boats ranging in size from 10ft. to more than 100ft, both freshwater and saltwater, ready for boarding and viewing, with end of season specials and dealer incentive programs available on many models.

“This is a perfect time to see these incredible vessels up close and in their element,” President of the South West International Boat Show Peter Bryant says. “Being able to see how a yacht or sailboat performs in water allows interested buyers to learn so much more about the vessel than seeing it on a trailer or showroom floor can ever do.”


Onshore, live music will provide entertainment, children of all ages can participate in remote control boat races and more than 200 vendors will offer a variety of services and products for the boating and outdoor lifestyle, including fishing gear, engines, apparel and outdoor equipment, in addition to a full range of marine electronics, sailing gear, accessories and hardware from top industry names. Dealers and manufacturers will also be on hand to provide valuable information and answer any questions.

Show highlights include on-water boat handling lessons for all experience levels, taught by US Coast Guard licensed captains.

Once again a comprehensive seminar program, featuring FREE hourly seminars for Boat Show attendees will be offered across the three days of the Show. These entertaining and educational seminars are hosted by industry experts, authors and world travelers, and cover a wide variety of topics from visiting Mexico by private boat, financing your yacht, small engine maintenance, understanding marine weather and women on the water.


The event also offers the “Let the Fin Begin” Party on September 24th, 2016, sponsored by LandShark Lager.
