Newport International Boat Show Preview

Newport International Boat Show Preview

One of the largest boat shows in the United States, Newport International Boat Show (NIBS) is set within a historic area of Rhode Island. This year, it will take place from 15 – 18 September.

Featuring Boat Types from Inflatables to Trawlers

There are a range of exhibitors taking part in this year’s event, showcasing everything from inflatables to catamarans and trawlers. Key yacht industry players such as Beneteau, Burger, Williams Tenders and Princess will be at the show to display their latest products and offerings for boat owners.

Created for Sailing and Motor Yacht Lovers

The Newport Boat Show caters to both sailing and motor yacht enthusiasts, and its location across 13 acres of historic waterfront makes it one of the most beautiful shows in the yachting calendar. NIBS has over 600 exhibitors and is the largest in-water display in New England. The show also sets itself apart with its Newport for New Products Program, which displays new boats for sale and products on a global stage

Newport has a long connection with sailing and hosts many regattas throughout the year. The deep waters of the Narragansett Bay, excellent harbor and easy ocean access make Newport a yachting hub along the northeastern coast of the United States. There is much professional and recreational interest in sailing in the region, so it is an excellent opportunity for yacht brands to meet interested clients.
