Newport Charter Yacht Show 2023
19th — 22nd June 2023
Newport, Rhode Island is known for many things, not the least of which are plentiful coastal areas and easy access to the ocean, making it the perfect setting for the Newport Charter Yacht Show presented by The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation.
Since its inception over 35 years ago, the four-day event, scheduled for Monday, June 19 through Thursday, June 22, has grown into New England’s marquee trade show for brokers, agents, managers, captains, and crews whose livelihoods depend on the luxury charter yacht industry.
It is staged not in a hotel ballroom but at Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard, which owns and produces the Show at its 10-acre waterfront facility in the heart of downtown Newport. Networking gatherings, educational seminars, and special events all take place dockside and aboard 17 registered (to date) yachts that serve as platforms for adventure during New England’s high summer charter season.
“Newport has long been the gateway to New England, especially for yachtsmen and yachtswomen,” said Show Director Veronica Brown, “and it is the goal of the Show to highlight for the attendees all there is to see and do in this part of the country while the participating charter yachts reveal what they, specifically, can offer that is unique and different for charter guests.”
