IF YOU HARBOR A PASSION FOR BOATING, THERE’S ONLY ONE PLACE TO BE….
The Newport International Boat Show encompasses 13 acres of historic Newport Harbor allowing you to enjoy everything the City-by-the-Sea has to offer while experiencing a full range of powerboats and sailboats from both domestic and international companies - many making their official debut in Newport! Visitors will also find an extensive array of marine equipment, services and accessories to round out the boat show experience.
So whether you’re in the market for a center console - perfect for a harbor cruise and a fun-filled day of fishing, or a yacht with all the luxuries you can imagine for an extended voyage, the Newport International Boat Show has it all! Come see, feel and test the merchandise and talk to the experts who can answer all your important questions. With over 600 exhibitors, you many need more than one day to see everything!
Special events and opportunities for the whole family include our At- The- Helm Training program where experienced boaters and novices alike can learn boat handling or brush up on known skills with a certified captain at the helm of either a powerboat or sailboat, and the Newport For New Products – People’s Choice Award where you can cast your vote for the best new boat in the show. Educational seminars presented by the very best in their field are offered all four days of the event. (Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available on our website).
When the sun goes down, stroll the city’s cobblestone streets, shop in specialty boutiques and dine at some of the finest restaurants in New England. The Newport Boat Show is a ‘must see’ this September!
