Newport International Boat Show
The Newport International Boat Show (NIBS), one of the largest and most prestigious boat shows in the country, spans over thirteen acres of historic downtown Newport, Rhode Island.
Walk the docks and view a spectacular display of shiny new sailboats and powerboats, some making their first-ever debut in the United States. On the land side, you’ll find hundreds of marine products, services, and accessories to enhance the boating lifestyle. Also on deck are educational seminars, in-water boating courses, and daily giveaways.
The Boat Show’s September dates and stunning location are added benefits to your visit. Set amongst grand coastal scenery, national historic sites, trendy boutiques, and world-class restaurants, it’s easy to pair your passion for boating with the experience of Newport and the beauty of fall in New England.
Join our Hylas Team at one of the premier shows of the season! This year we will be showcasing the new Hylas H57, marking the yacht's first-ever boat show debut. Private tours and demonstration sails are available.
