Newport show accepting award entries

Posted on

Entries are still being accepted for the Newport International Boat Show’s “Newport for New Products” awards program. The program recognizes the best boat (sail and power) and the best product being introduced at the show for the coming model year.

Entries can be sent in until Sept. 14 to be eligible for judging Sept. 17.

The selection of Best New Sailboat, Best New Powerboat and Best New Boating Product are highlights of this year’s show, scheduled for Sept. 17-20 in Newport, R.I.

New divisions have been introduced in each of the main award categories. In the Best New Sailboat and Best New Powerboat categories, selections will be divided by boats under 30 feet and those 30 feet and over. In the Best New Boating Product category, separate divisions have been established for operational products, such as engines and navigation devices, and non-operational products, such as lighting and safety equipment.

Divisional winners will be recognized, and one main winner in each category will be announced.

In the past, as many as 60 products being launched at the show have taken part in the judging. In 2008, the Sea Spirit Passagemaker 60 motoryacht, the Santa Cruz 37 crossover sailboat, and the Paraloc Rigging Line took first honors in the competition.

To be eligible, the boat or product must have been introduced between April and September, prior to the show, and make its official debut at Newport. Foreign boats may have been launched earlier but will be making their U.S. debut in Newport.

Is the decision to move the Miami show to the Miami Marine Stadium a good one?
