Dubai, UAE: Much more than an unmissable shop window for superyachts and marine products from all corners of the globe, the 25th Dubai International Boat Show hoists all-round family entertainment to the top of its final day programme tomorrow (Saturday).
From gravity defying stunts by daredevil water sport display teams to once-in-lifetime free sailing experiences as well as a dedicated Kids Arena, Dubai International Marine Club (DIMC) is the weekend ticket for visitors of all ages and all tastes in marine life, beachside activities and a bumper package of other attractions and activities.
The appearance of a super luxury yacht, longer than an average Premier League football pitch is wide, a sight to behold for buyers and young people alike on a leisurely stroll through a bountiful marina.
Others will find irresistible appeal in a range of submersibles, including a live demonstration of the Seabreacher, a dolphin shaped watercraft with a fully retractable snorkel, which sends pilot and a passenger into 360 degree barrel rolls, and has them leaping from the water like a well-trained porpoise in a marina show.
Also vying for attention are a splendid range of the latest water sport toys, while car lovers will also find much to their liking, with the supercar promenade showcasing a prized cluster of dream machines, including a Bentley Continental GT, McLaren 570 GT, Maserati Levante, Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4, Aston Martin DB11 and a Lamborghini Huracán.
Add in a marine art gallery, a Project Earth Pavilion offering prizes for fun displays to promote environmental awareness, a wide range of nautical fashion wear, jewellery, and plentiful food and beverage options, the 25th Dubai International Boat Show is a must attend for the family.
Getting in is easier than ever this year, with free visitor parking at Skydive Dubai and Nakheel’s multi-storey car park on Palm Jumeirah, with shuttle buses at both locations for the short journey to DIMC, as well as a regular water taxi service taking passengers directly to the venue.
