Newport Charter Yacht Show

Newport Charter Yacht Show

If you can’t make it to the the 30th annual Newport Charter Yacht Show this week, do not despair. We were at the docks this weekend and grabbed a sneak peak of some of the 22 yachts on display at this exclusive show. Of course, while we had the camera out, we got a few other pics of boats in the harbor that were not necessarily there for the show. Enjoy the views!

Yacht charter professionals can check out the yachts in person in Newport Monday through Thursday (6/18 through 6/21, 2012). Among the featured events is the show’s annual culinary competition on Wednesday, featuring some of the top chefs from the world of luxury yachts.
