Newport Shipyard has acquired the Newport Charter Yacht Show, which previously was owned by Newport Exhibition Group.

Dates for the 2016 show are June 21-24. The event brings together charter yacht brokers, media and other industry guests for a look at yachts available for charter during the summer season in New England and Maine.

“We felt Newport Shipyard was the natural fit for the long-term growth of the show,” Nancy Piffard, show director of Newport Exhibition Group, stated in a press release. “The amount of dock space, services and amenities that Newport shipyard offers lends itself to the larger-yacht industry.”
