Newport Charter Yacht Show under new ownership
by Malcolm MacLean
The Newport Charter Yacht Show (NCYS) has been acquired by the Newport Harbor Corporation (NHC), continuing a tradition of showcasing luxury charter yachts ranging from 24m in length up to the superyacht size of 68m.
Yachts from around the globe will glide into the spotlight at the Newport Yachting Center and elsewhere on the Newport Harbor waterfront from June 18-22, 2012. NHC is the parent company of Newport Exhibition Group which produces and manages multiple industry events, including the Newport International Boat Show, held at the Newport Yachting Centre each year
‘This will be the third consecutive year that the Newport Charter Yacht Show will be held at the Newport Yachting Centre but the first time it will be a part of the NHC family,’ says Tom DeLotto, director of Newport Exhibition Group, adding that the five-day show has been in existence for 30 years and is one of only a handful of significant charter yacht shows held around the world.
‘The Newport Charter Yacht Show has a solid foundation and will synergize perfectly with our company’s expertise in the yachting industry. Our 2012 show will pivot around a world-class display of luxury yachts available for charter as well as the services and amenities available to support yachts and their crews.’
