The Newport International Boat Show on historic Newport Harbor in Rhode Island marks the start of the fall boat show season, and it is one of the largest in-water boat shows in the country.

The 46th annual event, which ended Sunday, was the biggest Newport show since 2009. On display were sailboats, powerboats, marine equipment, services and accessories for boaters from 603 exhibitors across the world.
