Boot Dusseldorf, the 48th International Boat Show, will open this Saturday and continue through Jan. 29 at the fairgrounds in Dusseldorf, Germany. 

Organisers said the event will reflect the international market with a broad range of boats, yachts and water sports equipment.

About 1,800 exhibitors from 60 countries will participate in boot 2017 in 2.3 million square feet. All 17 exhibition halls will be occupied, providing a complete overview of the world market for water sports. Irish exhibitors, MGM Boats will be on the Jeanneau, Lagoon (Hall 15 A44) and Aquador stands. Bobby Nash of Latitude from Kinsale, among several others Irish firms, will also be at the massive show.

Organisers said more than 50 percent of the exhibitors come from European countries (especially from the Netherlands, Italy, France and Great Britain) and overseas.

Market leaders Jeanneau, Beneteau, Bavaria and Hanse will be represented again, highlighting interesting advances in their development operations. Other exhibitors will include Hallberg Rassy, Dufour, X Yachts, Oyster CNB and Swan.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
