JUNE 23-26 NEWPORT


NEWPORT CHARTER YACHT SHOW The Newport Charter Yacht Show is a showcase of luxury charter yachts alongside a display of ancillary goods and services for the charter industry. This four-day event is dedicated exclusively to yacht charter professionals—agents, owners, brokers and captains—in the dynamic, picturesque setting of Newport, Rhode Island. The Newport Charter Yacht Show is produced by Newport Exhibition Group (NEG), a division of Newport Harbor Corporation. NEG also produces the prestigious Newport International Boat Show taking place annually in September.

LOCATION


THE CITY BY THE SEA Newport is famously referred to as “America’s First Resort” and “The Yachting Capital of the World.” With a large, sheltered harbor within Narragansett Bay, Newport offers easy access to the Cape and Islands and is one of the primary destinations for cruising, racing and chartering during the summer months. Situated directly between New York City and Boston, Newport draws visitors from one of the wealthiest population corridors in the world.


FACILITY The Newport Yachting Center Marina is able to accommodate vessels up to 225’, with long side tie runs, high-volume fueling, single- and multi-phase power, CATV, WiFi, and water, as well as a wide range of technical repair and support services and easy access to adjacent downtown Newport.


FEATURES & ELEMENTS


THE CHARTER YACHT LIFESTYLE The core focus of this event pivots around a world-class display of luxury yachts (70’ – 200’+) available for Charter as well as the services and amenities available to support yachts and their crew. While vessels on display represent primarily the Charter Yacht industry, we also believe that the mix of on-land exhibitors offers value for the captains and crew, and enhances the experience for the potential Charter guest. Only exhibitors who fit within the positioning of the event and whose products and services complement the Charter Yacht lifestyle are invited to exhibit. Potential categories on display at the show’s upland area may include: Superyacht Industry Builders, Shipyards, Brokerage, Engines, Electronics, Communications & Accessories Products Cars, Private Aircraft, Jewelry, Wine, Watches, Art, Clothing Destinations Private Clubs, Resorts, Real Estate Services Interior Design, Yacht Management, Wealth Management


CAPTAINS & CREW Superyacht captains are influential in determining all aspects of yacht operations, destination cruising and vessel management. Therefore, a Captain & Crew component of the event will include educational seminars and competitions geared specifically towards the workforce of these large vessels.

FORUMS & SEMINARS Industry experts will address topics specific to the Charter Yacht industry, including new products and technologies, changes in maritime law, charterfriendly resorts and enchanting destinations.


SUPPORTING EVENTS & VENUES Beyond the core focus of the Charter Yachts, participants will have access to local amenities such as fine dining, lodging, entertainment and a host of support services all within walking distance of the Newport Yachting Center. The Rhode Island Department of Tourism will host a Familiarization Tour (FAM Tour) for show participants during the event. A professional guide will educate brokers and agents on the many hidden gems and fun activities that Newport County and the surrounding areas have to offer, including historic landmarks, wine vineyards, a golf course, luxury day spa, polo match, museums and more. Tourism specialists from other New England states will also be on-hand to highlight their unique amenities. An on-water excursion around Newport Harbor will be available for all those interested.
