The Newport International Boat Show will be held Sept. 11-14 at the Newport waterfront in Rhode Island.

One of the four largest in-water boat shows in the country, the Newport show features power and sail. The show will be spread out across 15 acres along America's Cup Avenue, stretching from the Newport Yachting Center to Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina.

More than 850 exhibitors with more than 700 boats ranging in size from 16 feet to 100 feet will be on display, along with kayaks, inflatables, equipment and accessories of all types. The show also includes PassageMaker magazine's TrawlerPort, a special section located at Newport Harbor Hotel & Marina highlighting trawlers in all sizes and style.

New this year is Multihull magazine's "Multihull Lagoon" featuring a full display of sail and power multihull yachts. Plus, services such as financing, insurance, storage, surveying, repair and maintenance will be offered throughout the show. There will also be demonstrations, seminars and workshops with children's activities all four days.

Producers of the Newport International Boat Show and publishers of Cruising World, Power Cruising and Sailing World magazines will once again present "Newport for New Products,” the official venue for U.S. debuts of all new boats and boating products.
