Lake Tahoe Concours to showcase up to 70 classic beauties at new home on West Shore

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 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.

Boat entry applications for TYCF’s Lake Tahoe Concours, along with tickets for the show and accompanying Wooden Boat Week events are available online at
