The annual summer San Diego International Boat Show with more than 175 motorboats and sailboats on display comes to Spanish Landing Park on Thursday for four days.

The range of boats this year will be from entry-level family cruisers at 30 feet to luxury yachts over 100 feet. Also on display are 100 exhibits with the latest marine accessories, services and electronics.

Boaters can sharpen their skills at workshops and seminars presented by experts. There’s also entertainment and a floating tiki bar.

The show is expected to draw attendees from as far away as Los Angeles, the Inland Empire, Arizona and Nevada.

The show is open from noon to 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $15.

Parking is available at the nearby Sheraton Hotel and the San Diego International Airport’s long-term lot at 2015 North Harbor Drive.
