In less than a month, the Newport Yachting Center will once again dress the city’s waterfront in couture yacht fashion as it hosts the annual Newport Charter Yacht Show. Scheduled from June 17 to June 20, the event is the only one of its kind in the U.S. and features a collection of world-class luxury charter yachts – from 80 feet up to the super yacht size of 150-225+ feet – showcasing their glamorous offerings to hundreds of attending charter yacht professionals in search of the perfect size and fit for their clients. In its 31st year and only its second under management of Newport Exhibition Group, the show already has 30% more registered yachts and vendors than at this time last year.
