The Dubai International Boat Show
5th - 9th March 2013
The Dubai International Boat Show is a growing arena which showcases new luxury yachts for sale and for charter in the Gulf region. The Dubai Boat Show (DIBS) 2013 is already looking to be bigger than the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 shows. Superyacht exhibitors are lining up to bring their luxury yachts for display to some of the world’s most notable yacht enthusiasts. The DIBS is the largest exhibition of its kind in the Middle East and one of the fastest growing marine shows in the world. The show will take place at the Dubai International Marine Club located on the Dubai waterfront. The Dubai International Marine Club is a yacht club that is of the most elegant in the region.
The Dubai International Boat Show gets bigger and better every year as it gains in popularity!
Possibly the reason the DIBS is such a popular show is due to its location. The Middle East proudly boasts of the world’s highest level of investment in waterfront property and developments. With this level of development they have more people living and working on the coast than ever before, and these people want water toys, and this is an ideal opportunity to view new yachts for sale as well as charter yachts. Yachts are the ultimate water toys, and the Middle East has buyers for them. There are more wealthy people in the Middle East than anyplace else in the world. For this reason, exhibitors from all around the globe want to be a part of the Dubai International Boat Show, and especially those exhibiting expensive water toys and luxury mega yachts for sale.
The very extensive exhibitor list for the 2013 show includes yacht designers, builders, and shipyards, boat parts manufacturers and sellers, marine service providers, yachting equipment and tender sellers, and many more. To name just a few, Stealth (South Africa), Caterpillar (USA), Nautica (Italy), Zodiac International (France), Abel (USA), Royal Marine (UAE), Plastico (Ukraine), Designpropeller (Germany), Tohatsu (Japan), Icon Yachts (Netherlands), Fincantieri (Italy), Heesen Yachts (The Netherlands), Mengi Yay, Mural Yachts, Oceanco, Sunseeker, Trinity and Westport.

It provides an outstanding occasion to all its exhibitors from all over the world to expand their business and work with international companies.
