297Days 19Hours 07Minutes 03Seconds

Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show wraps up 2024 and looks forward to 2025.

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. 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 3rd Annual CYBA produced boat show is set for May 15 – 18, 2025. In what seems a long time from now, opening day will be upon us before we know it. The continued success of your association’s boat show will rest heavily on those already involved, but it must be said that any help, support and assistance from the CYBA membership will be the overall push to greater success. Should you wish to comment or provide any additional support to the 2025 show, you are more than welcome to do so by emailing or calling CYBA President and Boat Show Chairman, Mark P. White. Markpwhite@cyba.info or 310-968-9376.
