49 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE
AUGUST 11 – 12, 2023
SHOW YOUR BOAT
Showcase your boat among some of the most well-preserved and restored boats in the world at North America’s premier wooden boat show! Each year the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance features more than 60 classic watercrafts. The Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation’s goal is to always have the best boats in the world, and only the finest boats that measure up to Concours‘ meticulous quality standards will be accepted into the show. Admission into Concours is a benchmark for wooden boat owners but classic fiberglass boats can also be entered. With continuously growing interest in participation in the show and a limited number of berths at Obexer’s Marina, we encourage you to register early.
2023 Class Structure – COMING SOON
Boats may be entered as Judged or Non-Judged “display-only.” Repeat Judged entries are to be judged a maximum of three (3) consecutive years. Also, the Selection Committee shall determine final placement of entries within the Class Structure above.
THE MARQUE CLASS
All different types of boats are displayed at the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance, but it’s the featured Marque Class that makes each Concours extraordinary. A Marque Class is selected every year by a panel of nationally recognized classic boat experts and judges to exhibit at the show. Each individual Marque Class is designed to bring a unique element and theme to the show and to ensure boating enthusiasts a new educational and viewing experience year after year.
2023 Marque Class – Boats of the 60s
Fins, hardtops, American V8 engines… modern Atomic Age styling will be on prominent display in the Obexer’s marina in 2023! 1960s Italian Riva boats and maybe a few wood-deck flatbottom go-fast boats as well. If you have a prime example from 1960-1969 submit an application. Of course all marques will be represented as well.
