Newport Beach, CA — The 37th annual Lido Boat Show – the biggest fall boat show in the West – opens Thursday, Sept. 17 at Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach and runs through Sept. 20. Along with the West’s biggest array of large yachts, the Lido Boat Show will present a wide selection of mid-sized boats, more than 200 powerboats and sailboats and provide visitors a first glance at some of the newest boats on the market.

Guests will not want to miss the new Azimut 53 Magellano as it makes its West Coast debut at the show. Described as a boat for cruisers, the Magellano 53 features spacious living spaces to allow for the upmost in cruising comfort. Three cabins, ample storage space, comfortable seating areas, a large cockpit and a hydraulic swim platform are also found on this luxurious cruising vessel that boasts sleek lines and the elegance of Italian style.

Alexander Marine will have the latest 72-foot motoryacht from Ocean Alexander on display at the show, along with the Pursuit 365si. The 72-foot Ocean Alexander 2016 model features expansive spaces and large windows throughout that give the boat a light and bright interior. The boat deck provides room for a tender in addition to a full-service bar, generous seating and a fully equipped helm station featuring Garmin electronics with helm seat controls.
