South West International Boat Show
News Release
Friday, January 13, 2012

Kick off the 2012 boating season in Texas at the South West International Boat Show…

South Shore Harbour Marina will once again play host to the largest and most exciting in-water boat show to come to Houston and the Lone Star State – the South West International Boat Show.

For 2012 the organizers are excited to announce two major partnerships; GEICO, the Presenter and Title Sponsor of the event and the endorsement of Sail America as part of the prestigious Sail America Boat Show program – making the event the largest in-water power and sailboat show in Texas!

GEICO’s presence at the show will include the Miss GEICO Racing Team, led by Throttle Man, Scotty Begovich, who will be signing autographs and available for photographs. GEICO will be exhibiting two of their offshore powerboats, the CAVEMAN and Miss GEICO - which is one of the fastest offshore powerboats in the world.

Sail America’s endorsement provides the opportunity to expand the display of sailboats already at the show, which currently number over 40 vessels and include Jeanneau, Beneteau, Lagoon, Catalina, Hunter and Leopard, as well introduce the new “Sail America Village” with a full range of marine electronics, products and accessories. Sail America will also offer a comprehensive seminar program taking place at the South Shore Harbour Resort Hotel, interactive demos, and free Discover Sailing sailboat rides.

Also new for 2012 are the “Best in Show Awards” which are designed to recognize exhibitors for marketing excellence in presenting their products and services at the Boat Show.

Over 400 boats will be on display, both in-water and onshore, bay boats, ski boats, sailboats, sportfish, powerboats and luxury yachts, with many ready to demo. Add to this the latest water toys, a wide variety of products and services for the recreational boating lifestyle and more, along with live music and good food, and you are assured of plenty of fun for the whole family!

Come and experience the difference of an OUTDOOR Boat Show!
