The number of exhibitors registered for the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show is 15% higher compared to the same time last year, showing a real increase in interest. The 2012 event will be the first edition to take place at the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam.
In addition to a new location, the event will also see a new concept focused on three nautical theme worlds (luxury, recreational and active) in which the participating boats will be exhibited. From Tuesday 4 to Sunday 9 September 2012, over 250 exhibitors from the Netherlands and abroad will showcase their latest designs and nautical products within the framework of an exciting activity programme on and around the water.
Registration 15% higher than last year
It is not only the regular participants that are positive about the new location and course being taken by the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show. The exhibitor list already includes around 30 companies that will be taking part for the first time or returning after a period of absence.
“We now have 147 confirmed exhibitor registrations with 194 boats,” says Farouk Nefzi, director of HISWA Multimedia. “This is 15% more than at the same time last year, which is a great result considering the difficult economic conditions.”
The 194 yachts registered for the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show include 30 Dutch, European or global premieres, such as the following motorboats: the Tenderline G7 (Tenderline), Marex 320 Aft Cabin Cruiser (Marex/De Boarnstream), Sturier 620 (Jachtwerf Volharding), Maremiss 63 (Hofstra Jachtbouw), Mulder 73 Flybridge and 72 Convertible (Mulder Shipyard), Swift Trawler 48 (Bénéteau), Contest 52MC (Contest Yachts), Smalland Tempo (Smalland Maritiem), Jetten 44 Sedan (Jetten Yachting), Vivante 55 HT (Vivante Yachts), Williams Dieseljet 565 (Delta Watersport) and Thomasz Tristan 50 (Thomasz Yachts).
New sailboats include the Sense 46 (Bénéteau), Contest 72CS (Contest Yachts), Oyster 725 (Oyster Marine) and Bavaria Vision 46 (Bavaria). A surefire crowd puller will be the clipper Stad Amsterdam, which will be moored at the outdoor quay during the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show as a hospitality ship for the city council.
The construction of a breakwater by the NDSM wharf is currently underway. It will provide the necessary protection for the new, permanent marina that will be built after the breakwater is completed. Amsterdam Marina will be the new home base of the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show, featuring berths for passing vessels in summer and permanent berths during the rest of the year.
Due for completion in 2013, the permanent facilities on the quay include the HISWA Nautical Centre which will accommodate various businesses such as the HISWA Group. The upcoming edition of the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show will make use of the new marina and temporary facilities created for the event on the quay.
