One of the largest in-water boat shows in the country, the show will host nearly 750 exhibitors from around the world with boats of every type and style from 15 to 85 feet, plus accessories, equipment, electronics, gear and services for boaters.
Expected to draw tens of thousands to Newport, the event will showcase new products and boat models unveiled for the first time and announce the winners of the Newport For New Products program, which recognizes the best new powerboat, sailboat and boating product introductions for the 2014 model year.
Visitors also will be able to attend the third annual Cruisers Party, hosted by Cruising Outpost, and get out on the water with Discover Boating and a hands-on skills training program.
Show hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 12-14; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 15. Online tickets are available through the show’s website. Tickets for Sept. 12, VIP Day, are $27 in advance and $30 on the day of the show.
