26-30 March 2019, Salmiya, Kuwait
Kuwait is one of the largest leisure boating markets in the Gulf, with an estimated 15,000 registered leisure boats according to the Kuwaiti government. The boat ownership ratio is estimated at one boat for every 44 Kuwaiti nationals and expatriates with higher incomes. The market is almost exclusively an imported one for small boats and yachts with a small network of boat distributors associated with all of the major Gulf boat builders, European and US yards. The boating season in Kuwait is from April to September, the opposite of that to the lower Gulf states such as the UAE, Qatar and Oman.
