2017 Dates and Marque Class Announced
The 45th Annual Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance will take place August 11 & 12th, 2017. The show will return to historic Obexer’s Boat Company for the 4th consecutive year on the west shore of Lake Tahoe in Homewood, CA. Wooden Boat week will begin with the Opening Night Gala on August 10th. Show and Social Function tickets will go on sale later this month!
2017 will feature another outstanding Marque Class hosting the world’s best antique and classic Utility boats from various manufacturers. First introduced after the Great Depression in the early 1930s, utility boats overtook runabouts in popularity after World War II. They are what most of us grew up around… being ideal for fishing and fast enough for water skiing. The open concept was perfect for piling in family and friends.
What defines a Utility? It must have one or both of two defining characteristics: An engine box in place of hatches and/or the absence of defined cockpits.
