From today and until 28 January, Düsseldorf welcomes yachting enthusiasts from all over the world to visit Europe's largest boat show, Boot Dusseldorf 2018.

The boat show will take place in 17 exhibition halls. Like in previous years, more than 200,000 visitors are expected. Here it will be possible to see, test and purchase new products from the world of kiting, surfing, diving, fishing, and, of course, yachts and boats.

This year, the organizers of the show have prepared a nice surprise for diving enthusiasts - a new full-fledged diving center, where it will be possible to communicate with like-minded people and to test-drive the newly developed equipment.

Besides, those who want to try their hand at surfing or kayaking in a huge swimming pool, and the youngest ones can go sailing on «Optimist class yachts». The exhibition pavilions will present exciting new rides and modern boat simulators.

Winners of international regattas, round-the-world sailors, windsurfing legends, extreme photographers and other interesting people will share their experience with visitors at special thematic sessions.

Boot Dusseldorf 2018 will bring together a record 43 premieres of the yachting industry for the show. Some of the most striking and anticipated of these among the powerboats will be the shipyard's S-Class 24.66-metre Sportbridge flagship Princess S78, the stylish sport cruiser Fairline Targa 43 Open, a roomy, faithful style of the legendary brand Riva 90′, as well as the smallest and largest yacht in the Predator series from Sunseeker.

The sailing segment will also be delighted with interesting new products such as 13.98m Bavaria C45 with «superyacht character» and «true ocean cruiser» Kraken 50.

The biggest exhibit at the show will be Princess 35M, which last year starred in a unique reality short film.
