Dubai International Boat Show, one of the most prestigious and influential yacht shows in the world, has opened its doors at Dubai Harbour on March 1, 2023.

The event brings together the biggest names in the marine industry and showcases the latest and most innovative products and technologies in the world of boating and yachting.

With a stunning display of luxury yachts, powerboats and marine equipment, the Dubai International Boat Show is a must-attend event for boating enthusiasts and industry professionals.

With over 1,000 exhibiting companies and brands from more than 60 countries, the 29th edition of the Middle East’s largest maritime show is in full swing from March 1 to 5.

The event has garnered recognition for its ability to unite global leaders in the leisure yachting industry, cementing its reputation as a platform for networking, innovation, and industry insights.

Beyond its impressive showcase of marine products and services, the show is also highlighting the Dubai’s position as a world-class destination to hold the mega events.

As Dubai continues to establish itself as one of the top ten nautical hubs in the world, the event is a testament to the Middle East’s growing influence in the marine leisure industry.

Sheikh Ahmed tours boat show

Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Media Council toured the show, accompanied by several dignitaries. Those in attendance included Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director General of Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism and Dubai World Trade Centre Authority, and Saeed Mohammed Hareb, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council.

During the visit, Sheikh Ahmed toured the Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation pavilion, where he was briefed on the Marine Craft Smart Inspection Project.

The project allows clients to have their marine crafts inspected and checked online, with Dubai Maritime City Authority inspectors able to check the crafts at the client’s location without needing to bring them to the Authority’s building.

Using virtual communication between the client and inspector, key parts of the marine craft are photographed and checked for compliance with safety and security standards to ensure client safety during use.

He also visited the stands of Dubai Police and Gulfcraft to view the eagerly anticipated Majesty 111, which is being launched at the Dubai International Boat Show. In addition, Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed stopped by the Al Rayyan Marine stand.

Luxury superyachts

Dubai International Boat Show presents luxury superyachts and the most exceptional leisure crafts worldwide, offering buyers, sellers, and boating enthusiasts a glimpse of the latest and best offerings in the market.

The show’s reputation has grown significantly, becoming one of the most sought-after maritime events in the region, showcasing opulent yachts and boats and highlighting the skills of craftsmen from around the globe. This presents boating enthusiasts with a chance to keep abreast of the latest developments and trends in the industry.
