Boot Düsseldorf is the world’s largest yacht and watersports show. From 20th to 28th January 2024, marine companies will display their products and network with potential customers and other industry professionals. 

While all 16 halls and their 1500 exhibitors will have something on offer that is of interest for all Islander Magazine readers, we decided to list the ones that will be most of interest for Industry Professionals and Yacht Crew. 

HALL 7a Superyachts

This is the hall where you’ll find the latest superyacht yacht designs and shipyards that offer 33m+ luxury yachts. Being on their home turf, Deutsche Yachten will have a big presence and hold great social events. Pantaenius, Ocean Independence and Drettmann -who are opening an office in Mallorca soon- will be there as well as Reckmann, Robbe & Berking, Sevenstar Yacht Transport, Silent Yachts, Sunreef, and many more. 

HALL 16 Sail Yachts

Sailing (Pocket) Superyacht brands such as Oyster, CNB, Nautor Swan, Solaris, Gunboat and Contest can be found in hall 16. Oyster will be present with their award-winning Oyster 565, CNB will be promoting their new CNB78 which is pictured on this edition’s cover. At the time of writing Nautor Swan has not confirmed which yachts they will have on display. In previous years, they displayed 2 in their smaller range. 

HALL 6 Motor Yachts

Luxury motor yachts up to approx. 33 meters will drop anchor in hall 6. Most of the big brands will be present: Sunseeker, Azimut, Bluegame, Absolute, Sirena, Fairline, Ferretti, Explorer, Pearl, Princess, Wally and more. 

HALL 10 Blue Innovation and Technical Accessories

In partnership with Boot Düsseldorf and European Boating Industry (EBI), Palma-based Yachting Ventures invites startups to participate in a pitching competition, taking place on Tuesday, 23rd January from 13:30. The competition aims to foster industry innovators while connecting startups with others within the industry. During the competition, a group of five startups will present their products and solutions to a panel of industry experts who are seeking to invest in innovative products and solutions. The winning startup will receive a free stand at Boot Düsseldorf 2025 and other benefits.

Hall 5 Super Boats

This hall is filled with the finest day cruising power boats. Brands like Boesch, Pardo, Capelli, De Antonio, Fjord, Frauscher, Nautor Swan’s Shadow and Nerea are represented here. As a yachting industry professional these are great products to know about. Some of them will appeal to many superyacht owners. Others are more accessible through the shared ownership or club programs they offer.

Hall 9 RIB’s

International manufacturers including 3D Tender, Lomac Nautica, Northstar, Pischel Bootsbau, Tiger Marine, Williams Jet Tender, and Z-Nautic Zodiac Bombard, to name but a few, can be found in hall 9. 

Other halls are fun to visit for anyone passionate about watersports. When you need a break from professional networking. There is always something fun to go and see in hall 7 where artists display their (maritime) art. Dream away about your next holiday in hall 13 where tourist centers from Mallorca, Egypt, Croatia, the Bay of Lübeck and Turkey will showcase typical national and regional characteristics. 

Of course bratwurst and pretzels can be found outside in the rain and cold!
