One of the biggest and most exciting boat shows of the year will take place in Newport, Rhode Island in September.

Known as the “kickoff” to the fall boat show season, the Newport International Boat Show will take place this year from Sept. 13 to 16. The show is the largest boat show in New England. Visitors come from around the globe to see the latest boats and products from hundreds of manufacturers and dealers, including dozens debuting for the first time in the United States.

The show is held along 13 acres of historic and beautiful Newport Harbor, allowing visitors to enjoy all that Newport has to offer while also checking out some of the best new powerboats and sailboats in the world.

New England Boston Whaler dealers will, of course, be at this year’s show with a wide selection of exceptional Whalers. Whaler will be represented by such New England dealers as MarineMax Russo, MarineMax Rhode Island and Silver Spring Marine, all at Dock S-1E.

Besides the wide selection of boats and products on display, there will be plenty for boaters to see and do at the show. Attendees can take a wide variety of courses, workshops and seminars to learn boating skills.
