Newport International Boat Show kicks off tomorrow

The Newport International Boat Show (NIBS) will kick off tomorrow. The four day event will include a series of seminars and other activities to entertain and inform guests in addition to a multitude of exhibitors and yachts on display.

The Show will also be hosting โ€˜At the Helmโ€™ courses this year, offering hands-on training by professional instructors for boaters of all levels, as well as the โ€˜Newport for New Productsโ€™ awards. The competition will see a panel of marine-industry experts judge best new powerboat and sailboat, best new navigation product, and best new product for boat operation, maintenance, and safety.

The largest superyacht on display will be the 37.18 metre Zeepaard (ex. Axantha) built by the French shipyard JFA Chantier Naval in 2003, as well as the 38.40 metre sailing yacht Gloria, built by the Jongert shipyard in 1986. Both yachts are currently for sale, with Zeepaard asking $9,950,000, and Gloria $5,950,000.

The Show will open its doors at 10am, and will be held until the 20th September in Newport Harbor.
