Concours to Showcase upto 70 Classic Beauties at New West Shore Home


Up to 70 classic wooden boats, many dating back to the 1920s and '30s, will be on display this summer when the 42nd annual Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance , presented by Tahoe Luxury Properties and Niello Porsche, opens to the public at its new location on Tahoe's West Shore. After 20 years on the north shore, the show moves to Obexer's Boat Company in Homewood, California, the birthplace of wooden boats on Lake Tahoe, for the August 8-9, 2014, show.

"The history of Obexer's, founded in 1911 and the first wooden boat dealership on Lake Tahoe, is as classic as the boats themselves," according to Tahoe Yacht Club President David Olson.

"In bringing the show back to the West Shore, however, we wanted to ensure that we could continue to host as many boats as our guests have come to expect in recent years," Olson said.  "We are thrilled to have worked out a plan with Obexer's management to accomplish that goal while also having even more space for our vendors and sponsors."

In addition to the boats on display in the harbor, the two-day Concours offers vendor booth displays, a Wine Village, food-and-drink court with live music, and private VIP Sponsor Lounge.

After 20 years at Sierra Boat Company, the 44th annual Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance will not be held at the Carnelian Bay, Calif., facility as originally announced, according to Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation, sponsors of the prestigious wooden boat show.

In response to feedback from previous VIP sponsors, the VIP Reserved Section for the 2011 Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance Wooden Boat Show, August 12-13, in Carnelian Bay, Calif., has been relocated to the pavilion entertainment area adjacent the food court and main stage.

Now the show’s generous sponsors and personal supporters can sit and relax in VIP style on the main floor while enjoying all the action of live bands, deejays, vendors and spectacular entertainment. And did we mention you won’t have to negotiate steep stairs this year, not to mention you’ll be just a few paces from the docks where some of the most pristine wooden crafts in all of North America will be on display for your viewing pleasure.

We value show sponsors – both corporate and individual donors – and we hope you continue to support this great maritime event. For more information on personal donations and sponsorships, contact Liquid Blue Events at 775-851-4444 or click on the sponsorship tab above.
