STUART — The 42nd annual Stuart Boat Show will take over the waterfront north of downtown Stuart this weekend, but some of the best parts of the show may be taking place on land.

AllSports Productions, the company that operates the show for the Marine Industries Association of the Treasure Coast, announced it has assembled the largest lineup of boating seminars in the history of the well-attended affair.

Show-goers will be able to meet more than 190 exhibitors distributed across the show’s footprint along Dixie Highway northwest of the old Roosevelt Bridge, and see more than $100 million of inventory of new and pre-owned boats of all sizes from paddleboards and jet skis to offshore fishing machines and trawler yachts.

There will be floating docks connecting three marinas along the show’s waterfront and numerous food and beverage vendors throughout the show to provide refreshments for attendees.

But each day, inside the designated seminar areas, will be six boating seminars or kids fishing clinics.
