The Dusseldorf boat show opens next Saturday and runs till the following Sunday week.

J/Boats will have the newly launched J/45 showing, and Grand Soleil will have the newly launched Grand Soleil 40. Both boats will be very popular at the show, and Irish visitors wishing to view these are advised to book their slots beforehand to ensure they get to see them.

J/Boats also have the very popular J112e and J/99 models on their stand.

Mark Mansfield is the Irish agent for Key Yachting, which has the UK and Irish agencies for both brands. Appointments can be booked through him at [email protected]

In addition to these two brands, Key Yachting are also the agent for the Tofinou brand of high-class daysailers. They will have their Tofinou 9.7 at the show.

The Dusseldorf boat show is the largest in the world and has not been held, due to Covid, since 2020. There are easy direct connections from Dublin to Dusseldorf with Aer Lingus and Eurowings, and also through Amsterdam, with a train to Dusseldorf. With delivery now a year or so, many premium new boat models like J/Boats and Grand Soleil need to be ordered shortly for 2024 delivery, so the Dusseldorf show is well positioned for potential owners to view models available.

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.
