The 41st Newport (R.I.) International Boat Show returns Sept. 15-18.

Traditionally the first national show of this season, this year’s event covers more than 13 acres along America’s Cup Avenue in Newport. More than 750 exhibitors are expected to display more than 600 boats, including express cruising yachts, racing sailboats, oceangoing trawlers and a multihull lagoon, plus Down East-style boats, sportfishing boats, runabouts, kayaks, canoes and inflatables.

In addition, there are engines, sails, equipment, safety products and electronics plus thousands of accessories and marine services, as well as seminars, demonstrations and workshops.

Newport For New Products — the official venue for U.S. debuts of new boats and boating products and an industry-wide initiative that recognizes the best boats and products being introduced for the 2012 model year — will once again be presented at the show. 

VIP Day is Sept. 15 with much of the industry press and the trade visiting the show and buyers being treated to special attention by the exhibitors. Special activities are planned and details are available on the show’s website.

This year’s show includes a free Saturday night party. Attendees can stay inside the gates at 6 p.m. and enjoy free pizza, beer and soft drinks at the Lats & Atts Cruiser Party.

Also, a new two-day ticket special will make the show a lower-cost weekend for avid boaters.
