Modern Meets Tradition at The Newport International Boat Show
The Newport International Boat Show runs September 17-20 and covers 13 acres of Newport’s waterfront with powerboats and sailboats ranging from 16 ft. to 100 ft. These boats are ready and waiting for you to come aboard and take a look around. On the land side, there’s a huge variety of marine products and services to enhance your boating lifestyle. Historic Bowen’s Wharf is part of this exciting event, offering in-water basin and land displays featuring Hinckley, Hunt and other Down East-style boats. More interested in Cape Cod craftsmanship? The Monomy First Light 26’, by Pease Boatworks in Chatham MA, is a streamlined gem of a power boat that we will feature both on land and sea here at Bowen’s Wharf.
The Monomy First Light ’26 couples Pease Boatworks’ 25 years of custom boat building experience with the desire to offer a traditionally handsome wooden vessel. Many people believe that a wooden built boat is the finest, and therefore integrating modern technology with classic aesthetics provides the best boat money can buy. There will be dealers and manufactures on hand to be contacted directly if interested in purchase, and admission to view these boats during the boat show, on site at Bowen’s Wharf, is free!n
