Welcome to the 44th Annual Newport International Boat Show, one of the largest in-water boat shows in the country and the premier show in the northeast!
This prestigious event encompasses 13 acres of Newport’s famed waterfront with all makes and models of powerboats and sailboats ranging from 16 ft. to 85 ft. ---ready for boarding and review. On the land side, there’s a bountiful array of marine products and services to enhance the boating lifestyle. Domestic and international dealers and manufacturers will be on hand to provide you with valuable information and answers to all your questions. With numerous countries represented - it truly is an international event.
Nothing beats on the water, hands-on training to improve your boat handling skills or to learn new ones. This year, Newport International Boat Show (NIBS) has teamed up with Confident Captain/Ocean Pros to bring you a Boat Show experience like no other.
The Annual Newport For New Products Award program, now in its 9th season, recognizes the best new boat and boating product introductions for the 2015 model year, selected by industry experts and through a People’s Choice Award.
The Newport International Boat Show is proud to align with the Coast Guard Foundation as our 2014 charity of choice. This national non-profit organization supports the men and women of the U.S Coast Guard who risk their lives on the water every day for our safety.
