Keen interest from the Middle East’s rich people is predicted at the 20th Dubai International Boat Show where major luxury brands and equipment will be showcased. The show runs from March 13 to 17 at the Dubai International Marine Club.

With the number of HNWIs in the region continuously rising, organisers say they expect more than 25,000 visitors. Some early birds already have been spotted around the Dubai Marina during the past weeks. A great example is the super-yacht with an Australian flag Dubai Chronicle’s editor saw and the pictures of which complement the article.

Year after year, the boat show attracts an audience of HNWIs. They visit the show to see exhibiting companies’ new super yachts, watercrafts and related equipment. They also like the social networking with   other boat enthusiasts who are attracted to the show’s additional luxury offerings, such as the Supercars.

The Dubai International Boat Show celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Last year  the event recorded its biggest sale. A 40-metre Sunseeker super yacht was sold for AED 100 million. Additionally, exhibitors reported excellent sales with smaller boats, mid-range yachts and super yachts.

For the third year in a row, luxury car brand Mercedes-Benz and elite watchmaker Officine Panerai have confirmed they will act as supporting sponsors of the show.

Amongst the line-up of Mercedes-Benz vehicles to be showcased this year will be  SLS AMG Roadster and the  new M-Class.

The Dubai International Boat Show will bring together many of the yachting and boating world’s most famous and prestigious names. Among these, a record number of 11 Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss) members, the most respected and exclusive superyacht association globally. Among the prized names, Abeking& Rasmussen, AMELS, Benetti, CRN, Feadship, Fincantieri, Heesen Yachts, Lurssen, Oceanco, San Lorenzo, and Trinity Yachts, have all confirmed their participation at the 20th anniversary edition of the show and will showcase their latest yacht models and designs.

Leading marine equipment companies such as Exalto Emirates, Elcome, Gulf Development Systems, Japan Marine, MTU and Yamaha are also investing heavily in the Dubai International Boat Show due to increased demand from regional boat builders, and the latest international marine technologywill be showcased by specialist exhibitors from the national pavilions of Australia, France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Turkey and South Korea among others.
