The “Newport for New Products” program features all the newest products to see, test, inspect and buy, debuted in Newport for the first time this season. Being the first major event of the fall boat show season, manufacturers have long made Newport the place to launch their newest boats and products.

The Newport International Boat Show recognizes three winning categories from magazines such as Cruising World, Sailing World, and Yachting: Boats Under 30’, Boats 30’ and Over for both power and sail, as well as the Best Product used for boat operation and/or boating safety. Over 750 manufacturers, reps and dealers- both domestic and international- will be featured at the 42nd annual Newport International Boat Show.

This is just another event that will lose attendance if tolls get slapped up on Rt 24 just something to think about folks, new tolls on that Bridge or highway is going to take something out of everyones pocket

Yeah I'm sure a toll will stop alot of people from spending 100 grand on a new boat.....the extra $4 will put it over budget......pay for what you use, real simple, negotiate a new rate for both bridges for Newport County residents and stop crying
