Next week, you may see more mega-yachts than usual in Newport Harbor. That’s because the exclusive Newport Charter Yacht Show is happening Monday through Thursday, June 17 – 20, 2013.

The 31st edition of the event, which takes place at the Newport Yachting Center, will be showcasing over two dozen world-class luxury yachts from around the globe, ranging in size from 80 feet up to the super yacht size of 150 to 225+ feet. There will also be ancillary goods and services on display, informative seminars, lively “yacht hops” and an exquisite culinary competition.

Unfortunately, you will have to admire the glamorous yachts from afar if you’re not in the biz. The four-day show – the only one of its kind in the U.S. – caters exclusively to charter industry professionals, including agents, owners, brokers and captains.
