Newport Charter Yacht Show 2021, June 21 -24

Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard, located in the heart of Newport, hosts the only crewed charter show in the United States. The show features luxury sailing and motor vessels from 60 to over 200 feet. This year’s show will be held from June 21-24 and is open to charter yacht brokers, charter managers, and industry professionals.

Registration is open at:

“Every June we look forward to welcoming charter and industry professionals, captains, crew and show sponsors to Newport for the Charter Show just as summer is getting into full swing,” said Eli Dana, general manager of Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard. “This year’s show will be a bit different with fewer yachts participating due to many being booked solid for 2021 and several  yachts also taking an extra week or two of charters in the Bahamas before heading to New England for the summer,” explained Dana. “We’ll have a more relaxed atmosphere with a charter yacht showroom feel which will be fun a bit more casual than our usual format,” he continued. “We are also waiving the yacht registration fee to encourage more yachts to participate even if it’s for only a day or two.” Click here for the Show schedule:

“The Newport Charter Yacht Show is a very important event for Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard and the charter industry as a whole, and we’re excited for another great event with a bit of a modified format to match the participation and excitement surrounding this year’s Show,” continued Brown. “All captains and crew in the marina will be invited to participate in the social events to kick-off summer 2021 in style like we always do.”
