18 February 2010: LOS ANGELES, CA — Some of the boating industry’s most exciting innovations are being unveiled at the 54th Annual Los Angeles Boat Show beginning Thursday, February 18, through Sunday, February 21, 2010, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Among the exciting innovations on display is the Kona Concept Catamaran Deck Kit, a zero emission solar electric boat that has the speed, range and sea-worthy attributes that allow cruising between harbors in the open ocean, as well as protected waters. The award-winning boat can be assembled at home in less than a day.

Sponsored by the Automobile Club of Southern California, the official water craft insurance provider, the annual event is one of the largest and most prestigious boat shows in the western United States, having drawn nearly 4 million attendees from across the nation over the last 53 years, to view the most spectacular array of boats and marine accessories available under one roof.

“This year’s show will display millions of dollars worth of new water craft and products. Everything from affordable family-oriented boats, to the most luxurious motor yachts and finely crafted sailing vessels,” said Dave Geoffroy, Executive Director of the Southern California Marine Association (SCMA), the show’s organizers. “The new four-day format also promises to be jam-packed with fun and activities for the whole family?all at a new low price.”
