Classic Yacht Parade
The Classic Yacht Parade is one of the most appealing and exciting events on the very busy harbor in Newport, RI. On moving display around the harbor is a beautiful collection of over 50 classic yachts, both sail and power, that represent the very best of classic yacht design and construction. The yachts will be vying to win the coveted Classic Yacht Parade awards including “Best Sail”, “Best Power”, “Most Patriotic” and “Best Costumes”. There are many wonderful vantage points to view this procession of spectacular yachts in their own element, including the Goat Island Marina dock, Bowen’s Wharf, Bannister’s Wharf, The Newport Yachting Center dock, King’s Park Pier and the Alofsin Piers and Sail Newport Waterfront Center at Fort Adams. This is an opportunity for boat lovers as well as for anyone who appreciates beauty, craftsmanship and splendor.
