NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – If you’re looking to beat the wintertime blues all you’ve got to do is head over to the¬†Javits Center where the 107th annual New York Boat Show is making waves through this weekend.

The event showcases everything from luxury motor yachts and sport fishers to performance boats, fishing and watersports gear, boating clubs and vacations, marine electronics, and thousands of boating accessories.

1010 WINS’ John Montone reports there are watercraft available to fit any budget.

This year’s “Queen of the Show” is a $1.2 million, 54-foot, 1,200 horsepower Sea Ray 540 Sundancer. The vessel is equipped with side-to-side docking navigation.

Boat Show Manager John Pritko tells Montone the boat rivals an Upper East Side penthouse with its walnut floors, teak doors and granite counters.

The show will be in town through Sunday.

Tickets are $14 for adults; children 15 and under get in for free.
