In its tenth season, and in partnership with leading national marine publications Cruising World, Sailing World and Yachting, NFNP is a highlight of the industry, helping to publicize what's new and exciting for boaters. NFNP is open to domestic and foreign products launched after April 1, 2015 that will make their official boat show debut at Newport. Foreign boats and products that have been shown and sold outside the U.S. are still eligible. Industry experts judge the entries on the basis of innovation, value to the consumer, safety and aesthetics. Individuals who attend the show on Thursday, September 17th will receive a voting card upon entry and cards returned that evening will be tallied. The People's Choice Award will be announced along with the other winners on Friday morning, September 18. One "People's Choice" voter will be selected randomly and receive a $150 Newport Restaurant Group gift card.
