Boot Dusseldorf is renowned for being the world’s biggest boat and water sports trade fair, and SmartYacht is looking forward to the 48th edition. Every year since 1969, Boot Dusseldorf has welcomed the most prestigious shipyards, brokerages, charter companies and yachting enthusiasts. It’s a fantastic opportunity to network and find out the latest innovations and developments in sailing.
This year, the event once again takes place at the huge indoor exhibition site Messe, near Dusseldorf Airport. It takes place from 21st to 29th January 2017 when exhibitors and visitors from around 60 countries will gather to view boat premieres, new water sports gear, equipment and maritime services. Boot Dusseldorf has firmly established itself as the indoor venue to see magnificent flagship superyachts from the world’s best shipbuilders such as Sunseeker and Princess. Unlike many arenas, Messe can fit in large vessels and there is a great focus on luxury yachts, including sailing yachts, motor yachts and catamarans.
Halls 6 and 7 will be completely dedicated to yachts and yacht service agencies and companies. SmartYacht is honoured to be in attendance in Dusseldorf once again after our successful presence at last year’s Boat Show. Fractional yacht ownership has really taken off in recent years as people realise they can attain a luxury lifestyle without the huge expenditure of time and money. Fractional yacht ownership can save up to 75% on purchase and maintenance costs of a yacht, while delivering all of the benefits of independent ownership. We’ll be located in Hall 7a, stand G02, where we’ll be happy to show you how yacht co-ownership can be exclusive without being elitist.
Besides our fractional yacht ownership services, visitors will be treated to a plethora of maritime display and services within the 17 halls of Boot Dusseldorf. Over 1,800 exhibitors will be showcasing everything from diving equipment and jet skis to tempting holiday ideas. Many of the displays are interactive and allow for sea trials in specially built water tanks with wind machines providing just the right amount of breeze. The 9-day event is enjoyable for all the family, not just industry insiders and sailors, and children will love the sailing and diving halls, not to mention the new Surfers Village in Hall 2.
If there is only one boat show you attend in 2017, make it Boot Dusseldorf. It’s the premier watersports show in the world, attracting around a quarter of a million visitors. SmartYacht has no doubt it will attract a similar number of maritime enthusiasts this year and our staff are excited to present our yacht co-ownership scheme, which makes yacht ownership more accessible.
