There will be a very varied line up of vessels from luxury yachts to small pleasure boats exhibited along with all the accompanying equipment, components, and services. Water sport toys of all shapes and sizes will be on show and there will also be experts showing off their special finance and insurance deals.

A special zone has been set aside for high-end luxury lifestyle brands, which also includes cars and helicopters. There are bonded warehouses on both land and water for professional equipment. 

It would seem that every need and taste has been catered for and this should, indeed, be a memorable event.
