What to Expect at the 2018 Concours d’Elegance

Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance returns this year with an event favorite! In celebration of the show’s 46th year, the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation, in conjunction with Tahoe Luxury Properties, is excited to announce the return of one of the most popular Marque Classes, Original Tahoe Boats.

North America’s premier wooden boat show will be held at the historic Obexer’s Boat Company in Homewood, California August 10 and 11, 2018. Tickets are available for purchase today.

Although there was never an indigenous boat building industry on Lake Tahoe, it has been a center of recreational boating since the late 19th century and many of the boats that were delivered new to Tahoe have survived in such caring hands. In many cases, the boats have remained in the same families for generations. Others have changed hands over the years but have been kept at Lake Tahoe.

Each year, a Marque Class is selected by a panel of nationally recognized classic boat experts and judges to exhibit at the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance. Each individual Marque Class is designed to bring a unique element and theme to the show and ensures boating enthusiasts a new educational and viewing experience year after year.

The last featured Original Tahoe Boats as the Marque Class was in 2004, and it was the largest Marque Class in the Concours' history.

It is sure to be a terrific and nostalgic event at Obexer’s this year!
