The organiser of the Valencia Boat Show 2016 has announced that the show will take place in the Marina Real Juan Carlos I. The 7-day event is set to start from October 31.

One of the reasons for the change is due to the large number of boats that will be exhibited on the water.

Visitors can now take part in sea trials and on water boat tests prior appointment. Sea trials are scheduled from October 31st to November 1st.

“We needed more space on the water for easy boat manoeuvre and space for the exhibitors,” explains the event organiser in a statement.

In addition, the new venue provides a wider exhibition space on the actual dockside allowing for the increase in size and distribution of stands at actual sea level.

In addition to be held at a new venue, this year’s show welcomes

European boatbuilders including Azimut, Bavaria, Bénéteau, Hanse and Jeanneau, to name a few.


At least 50 new boats will be on display at the show

These boat brands will have on display a wide range of new boats including the latest 2016 designs that have just been unveiled at the Cannes Boat Show.

The show organisers have said that at least 50 new boats will be on display.

Also attending the show are companies like Helimotor and Staynautica with a fleet of Sacs and Starfisher motorboats.

Engine marine manufacturers including Volvo Penta, Yanmar, Pasch y Cía and Sole Diésel have also confirmed that they will be present at the Valencia Boat Show.

Running to its sixth edition, the Valencia Boat Show aims to become a benchmark exhibition for the marine industry in Spain.

Following the show’s steady growth over the past several editions, the 2016 Valencia Boat Show is back with a new format tailored to the major European boat builders and their sales network in the Spanish market.

The Valencia Boat Show is organised by the Valencia-based Union of Nautical Companies (Union the Empresas Nauticas, UEN) since 2009.
