If you’re planning a trip to Europe after the holidays, or if you want to experience one of the finest boat shows in the civilized world, you might consider a stopover in Germany for the 51 edition of boot Dusseldorf January 18-26
Few, if any shows in the world can match boot Dusseldorf for variety or sheer size. The show spans 17 exhibition halls covering 2.3 million square feet. In addition to boats and yachts, it features engines and engine technology, equipment and accessories, services, canoes, kayaks, kitesurfing, rowing, diving, surfing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, SUP, fishing, maritime art, marinas, water sports facilities, beach resorts and charter.
The 2020 edition features numerous sailboat and powerboat premieres. The new Hall 1 will house medium-sized motor yachts with inboard engines, between 30 and about 60 feet in length. Exhibitors will include major manufacturers such as Jeanneau, Bénéteau, Bavaria, Sealine and Greenline. Dutch steel yachts like Linssen will also be there. Visitors will be able to see a range of medium-sized motor yachts that is unique at a trade fair anywhere in the world.
Hall 6 remains at the heart of luxury yachting at boot Düsseldorf. All distinguished superyacht builders will be on display. Following the tremendous success at boot 2019, the gallery of Hall 6 will be packed with shipyards whose yachts are too big for presentation at the show. Anyone looking for a berth at one of the exclusive superyacht marinas like Venezia or Porto Novi in Montenegro can book it on the gallery in Hall 6. Further top marinas are expected to present their services at boot 2020.
Hall 7a rounds off the luxury segment with the Superyacht Show and the exhibition boot Interior. The new “Superboat Hall” is the beginning of the luxury segment at boot Düsseldorf. A separate section of the Superyacht Show in Hall 7a will be dedicated to everything concerned with the interior of superyachts. Hall 5 will be dedicated to the recent trend of “shadow boats” and luxury tenders.
Boot Dusseldorf has a hands-on element that offers something for any watersports enthusiast of any age, from sailing and fishing, to diving and surfing and much more. As with the world’s great museums, it offers staggering variety, but it’s nearly impossible to cover in a day.
