The Newport International Boat Show will feature new sailboats and powerboats, and thousands of products and services from both domestic and international exhibitors.
Multiple waterfront facilities along America's Cup Avenue host the Show including Newport Yachting Center, Oldport Marine, Bannister's Wharf and Bowen's Wharf. All Show sites are accessible by land or by water taxi service.
Also, being the first major show of the Fall boat show season, manufacturers have long made Newport the place to launch their new boats and boating products. Together with Cruising World, Sailing World and MotorBoating magazines, the Show recognizes boats in divisions Under 30' and 30' and Over, as well as products used for boat operation or for boating safety... before the event in a special magazine insert, during the Show with special identification and activities, and gives awards for "Best New Powerboat", "Best New Sailboat" and "Best New Boating Product". If you're debuting a new boat or boating product, debut it in Newport, or if want to see the latest, be sure to come to the Show.
