Barcelona International Boat Show
26-30 September 2012
The Barcelona International Boat Show is back this year with some important novelties.
In its 51st edition, the Barcelona Boat Show has changed dates and instead of being held in November as usual, this year it will be from 26 to 30 September, in order to take advantage of the daylight hours that we still have this month. This information is important to understand the second-and foremost-novelty, the Boat Show this year will take place entirely in the Port Vell area.
The Barcelona International Boat Show 2012, one of the most important ones in the world, will feature four thematic areas (Fun Beach, Espai del Mar, the Village and Traditional Marina) where there will be a large number of recreational, sportive and informative activities, as well as performances, exhibitions, quizzes, parties, etc.. and even a boat parade through the Port Vell.
About 200 boats will be moored at Port Vell in Barcelona and will be able to be visited. Thanks to the change that the organizers have done, who have reduced the minimum length to participate down to 8 meters, the floating exhibition will be wider.
All the latest innovations of the nautical sector in Barcelona
One of the main objectives of the Barcelona Boat Show is to dynamize commercial activity within the marine sector and to generate more business, which is why the Boat Show will present new products with the latest technologies such as 3D cartographic maps, boats with hydraulic platforms, low consumption engines or control-keychain to control the electrical system.
Always with the fun factor of the sea on mind, the Barcelona Boat Show wants to promote recreational crafts and has also created a space for fun. Taking advantage of the good weather that there is usually still in September ,there will be many activities in the water: sailing, paddle-surfing, kayaking, etc. … as well as out of the water: wooden craft workshops and seafaring customs, navigation school days in the Maritime Action Ship, etc..
