This past weekend Tahoe Luxury Properties returned as the presenting sponsor of the 48th Annual Lake Tahoe Concourse d'Elegance, North America’s premier wooden boat show. After a two-year hiatus, the event returned to Obexer's Marina, showcasing some of the most well-preserved and restored wooden boats in the world. The Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance is unrivaled in its exhibition and preservation of maritime tradition.
This two-day event is packed with fabulous food, delicious drinks, luxurious shopping of course the main attraction, the exquisite wooden boats. Boat owners from all over the country flocked to Lake Tahoe to proudly present their pristine works of art.
This year the show centered around 100 years of Chris-Craft Boats, with 40 of the 63 boats entered being Chris-Craft models. No boat was the same and each boasted impressive upgrades or exceptional restorations. From unique models like the 1990 24' Length 250hp 8- cylinder Mona Lee, which is one of only 16 ever made and the last known one to be in running condition, to the 1930 26' length 330hp 8-cylinder Gotta Woody that took home the People Choice award for its elegant look, stunning stain and fabulous name. The 1939 19' length 145hp 6-cylinder Annabelle claimed the "Best Chris-Craft of Show." With so many amazing boats it was hard to stand out making the 1934 27' length 250hp 8-cylinder Chris-Craft Stardust even more impressive. This one of a kind Chris-Craft was the proud winner of not 1 but 3 prestigious awards; "Overall Best Of Show - The Jordy Carlton Memorial", "Best Professional Restorer", and "Best Marque Class of Show".
Once again, we were proud to support the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation and this remarkable event that truly demonstrates that this event is more than just a show. It is a lifestyle.
