Lake Tahoe’s Concours d’Elegance is now in its 45th year, this event, presented by Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation, Inc., has become the most prestigious vintage boat show in the United States, offering the opportunity for the public and collectors alike to appreciate these classic treasures.
Many of the 75-plus vessels in the marina for show at Obexer’s Boat Company, Homewood California, date back to the early 1900s, designed for the elite who had a taste for the finer things in life. Today, they range in value from $25,000 to several million dollars.
The Lake Tahoe Concours is the heart of wooden boat week which begins on August 10th with a variety of activities including opening night dinner/dance, men’s grill, ladies’ luncheon, wine tasting, Sponsor’s Dinner, Woody Over the Bottom, and Mahogany Magic.
Each year, it is Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation’s goal to be able to realize a surplus from the Concours and these events to carry out its mission of helping preserve the environment and history of the Lake Tahoe basin.
Thus far, TYCF has been able to award over $300,000 in grants to a variety maritime-related, charitable and cultural organizations including, but not limited to the Tahoe Maritime Museum, Boys’ and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe, North Lake Tahoe Arts, North Lake Library, California Sate Parks Foundation, Thunderbird Lodge Preservation Society, North Lake Tahoe Historical Society and many more.
