Barcelona International Boat Show 2018


The most innovative and entrepreneurial year

Innovation, technology and entrepreneurship are the main pillars of the 57th Barcelona International Boat Show, which will be held from 10 to 14 October at Port Vell in the Catalan capital. The Show will be 8% bigger in comparison with the previous year, with more display cases, boats, spaces and activities enabling visitors to find out more about the future of sailing and enjoy the world of navigation. In addition, the Boat Show will display more than 120 new products related to boats, engines and electronics, revealing how the world’s leading major brands are committing to the incorporation of technology to increase the performances of their sailing boats, yachts, speedboats and engines. These new products include a dozen models nominated for Best European Boat of the Year.

The event seeks to introduce the nautical world to more enthusiasts by encouraging sport-related sailing

An extensive programme of activities and experiences to promote sailing will be another of the great attractions of this year’s Boat Show. Thus, Fira de Barcelona’s Show launches a new slogan, ‘Fans of the sea’, seeking to target new audiences. It will also offer various experiences to enable visitors to enjoy the sea. Thus, in the Fun Beach Area there will be a testing area for light sailing, kayak and paddle surfing sessions, while there will be a further Barcelona SUP Festival, a meeting place for paddle surfers who will perform this activity in the Port Vell’s waters, and the second Barcelona Paddle Race, an open-sea competition departing from the show venue and finishing in Badalona. Together with the above, the Traditional Marina area hosting an exhibition of classic boats with workshops and activities for the whole family and the Noche de la Náutica, with live music, fashion shows and tastings, will complement the attractive schedule of activities.
