The 52nd Newport International Boat Show took place September 14-17, 2023, at the Newport Yachting Center in downtown Newport, Rhode Island. One of the largest in-water events in the country, its expanded footprint encompassed more than 15 acres on both land and water and hosted hundreds of exhibitors, dealers and manufacturers, with new powerboats and sailboats ranging from 15- to 90-feet, plus an extensive selection of marine equipment, services and accessories for boaters.
This year’s show included a diverse line-up of 12 new boats and 20 products making their U.S. debut. Industry experts judged each entry on opening day and awards were given in several categories. Fourteen of the new products were designated as “green” entries for their environmentally conscious design, and several entries were highlighted for accessibility features. Next year’s show will take place Sept. 12-15, 2024. For more information and a list of this year’s award winners, visit www.newportboatshow.com.
