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.

2021 Marque Class – Boats of the 1960s

The 1960s started sixty years ago!… Hard to believe. What better year to celebrate the flashy, iconic 1960s boat marques. Fins were in – gullwing hardtop Chris-Craft Continentals, Century Coronados, big American V8 engines galore. Italian wooden Riva’s hit their prime by the late 1960s with Aquarama production at an all-time high. Boat manufacturers were using more automotive crossover parts than ever. For the first time 50 miles-per-hour was common in new pleasure boats, and could be had for a lower price than ever before. Utility boats focused more on water-skiing, and the cockpit style runabout configuration virtually disappeared. Small family outboard boats were wildly popular, especially on smaller lakes. If you have a special 1960s vintage boat, the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance is the place to show it in 2021!
