You can choose to take a ride during the show, or upgrade for the exclusive experience of being part of the show in the Roar Off.

The Star Dust

The Star Dust is a beautifully restored 27-foot, 1934 custom Chris-Craft runabout. She was used extensively by Meeks Bay Resort to take visitors for rides around the Lake in the 1930s & 1940s. After years of private ownership she was donated to Tahoe Maritime Museum, now Tahoe Maritime Center, in 2004 and then put back into active service as the museum’s ride boat in 2013.

Rides at the Concours

The Star Dust will be hosting half hour rides during the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance. The boat seats up to six people.
