JANUARY 5, 2015
DATE, LOCATION AND MARQUE CLASS ANNOUNCED FOR 2015 LAKE TAHOE CONCOURS d'ELEGANCE

With great pleasure Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation announces the return of the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance to the historic Obexer’s Boat Company in Homewood, Calif., for its 43rd annual show on August 7-8, 2015.

“Based on last year’s impressive reviews, we’re thrilled to combine the rich history and open
shoreline vistas of Obexer’s with the country’s premier wooden boat show,” Foundation Chairman, Doug Ball said. “Skeptics questioned if it could be done. As the highest
attended show to date, last year’s maritime enthusiasts answered proudly. With ingenuity,
dedicated work, and a unified team of experts, we showcased more than 70 of the most prestigious wooden boats from all over the globe in the most remarkable and intimate of settings, and the results were magnificent. We have the right team in place to ensure an even more enjoyable, if not thunderous, show for 2015.”

This year’s show will roar to life with the Marque Class featuring “Vintage V-12 - powered Watercraft.” With Lake Tahoe boasting more V-12 powered runabouts in regular use than anywhere else in the world, the 43rd annual Concours is sure to please the senses with not only rumbling power but the awe-inspiring beauty synonymous with antique wooden boats.

V-12 engines have been powering exotic wooden boats since the dawn of the high speed runabout, and race boats as far back as World War I. From the smaller marine converted Lincoln Zephyr V-12s, a mere 267 cubic inches, up to the 2,000 cubic inch monster in big runabouts and race boats with such industry-recognized names as Liberty, Wright, Curtiss, Packard, Hispano-Suiza, Lycoming, Rolls-Royce, Allison, Kermath, and Scripps installed in big runabouts and race boats - is what tickles the senses – and the hearing – of gear-heads, engineers and artisans alike!

Hold onto your hats, bring the ear plugs if you must, and step into the rustic history of Homewood on Tahoe’s beautiful West Shore for the two-day show, Friday, Aug. 7, and Saturday, Aug. 8.   You will be rewarded with historic venues, breathtaking views, truly one-of-a kind dining and shopping experiences, not to mention the largest gathering of the most powerful and pristine watercraft gathered at the Concours d’Elegance.  It will simply take your breath – and potentially more – away.
