“I come to the Dubai International Boat Show each year and really enjoy the event. There are some very impressive yachts on display this year. I think the Dubai Boat Show is much better than the Abu Dhabi Boat Show as there is a better offering once you are in.”

Ahmed, Emirati, Abu Dhabi

“We first visited Dubai for the Boat Show 6 years ago and this is out first time back. We are here with our 3 children and parents and love that there is something to do for the whole family. The kids were entertained, and we managed to get on several yachts.”

Lucas & Eva, International visitor, Poland

“We have been coming to Dubai for the Boat Show for 6 years now and really enjoy the event. We come to look for new parts for our boat and the inside area of the exhibition is great for this.”

Basil & Brenda Jones, America, Abu Dhabi Residents

“This is my first to time visit Dubai International Boat Show and I have really enjoyed the day. I have come for an afternoon out with friends and to look around but it’s been nice to chill at the Nikki Beach lounge."

Matthew Henri, New Zealand, Dubai resident

“I heard about the Boat Show from a friend of mine and I came to see what’s going on and I was not disappointed. The music, the vibe, the boats and the toys are all expected however, the supercars and the Mercedes Benz stand, that I did not expect to see at a Boat Show.”

Sally, Lebanese, Sharjah resident

“I am here to see the superyachts, this is my second time visiting the show and it is very nice. I like the speed boats as well and the sea toys stands. The quality of the show seems to improve year on year, and I look forward to the new Dubai Harbor location.”

Zak, Lebanese, Dubai resident
