The 47th Annual Newport International Boat Show will take place September 14 through 17, 2017 at the Newport Yachting Center in downtown Newport, Rhode Island, show organizers announced Tuesday.
The Newport International Boat Show encompasses over 13 acres and will host hundreds of exhibitors from around the world with new powerboats and sailboats ranging from 15 to 90 feet, plus a variety of accessories, equipment, electronics, gear and services for boaters.
In addition to the boats, products and services, there will be a number of events to educate and entertain visitors. Education opportunities include the CruiserPort University seminar series presented by PassageMaker, Sail, Soundings and Power & Motoryacht magazines. This year’s program "CruiserPort University The Bluewater Edition" is geared toward sailors and powerboaters looking to make offshore ocean passages.
The Newport For New Products program provides attendees with the opportunity to view boats and products making their debut in the U.S. Each NFNP entry is judged by a panel of experts and awards are given for best new powerboat; sailboat; navigation product; and boating operation, maintenance or safety product, at a ceremony on Friday, September 15.
