FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Lineup Has Been Announced!
More than 70 Boats On Display
The flags are up and The Tahoe Yacht Club Foudation’s Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance is excited to announce that more than 70 of the finest and rarest wooden boats in the world will be on display August 8th & 9th and Obexer’s Boat Company in Homewood, California.
“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.”

The recent announcement that the Marque Class for the 2015 Concours will feature Vintage V-12s is another first for the Tahoe Concours organizers, and we look forward to the wide range of rare V-12 based engines that emerge for the show in 2015. Each and every one is truly a work of art and timeless engineering, evoking memories of the golden age of boating, and boat racing from the early 1900’s to the later technology used in marine applications. – Texx
In addition to the boats on display in the harbor for the 2014 show, the two-day Concours offers vendor booth displays, a Wine Village, food-and-drink court with live music, and private VIP Sponsor Lounge.

About the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance:
The Concours d’Elegance, begun in 1982 by Tahoe Yacht Club, has grown from an informal gathering of club members’ wooden boats to one of the most prestigious judged showings of vintage water craft in the nation.
The Foundation was created in 1994 with the specific purpose of continuing the club’s dedication to expanding boating education and opportunities on Lake Tahoe by hosting the Concours d’Elegance show and accompanying events of Wooden Boat Week. As an IRS 501(c)(3) charitable foundation, TYCF is able to solicit corporate and personal sponsorships for the event with proceeds granted back to Lake Tahoe Basin non-profit organizations. The show – sponsors, exhibitors and attendees – is open to the public.
