Owners, captains and charter crews will proudly showcase what their yachts have to offer, and exhibitors and visitors include yacht builders, technical experts, industry professionals and investors from all over the world.
The organisers look to create a welcoming atmosphere with watersports demonstrations, competitions, boat rides and family activities focussing on marine conservation.

If you are attending the show or doing business in the area and want to extend your trip, the United Arab Emirates is a wonderful destination to charter a yacht.
A yacht charter vacation in the UAE
Enjoying an extensive Gulf coastline, yachting has been central to most of Dubai’s extensive development over the years and the city is known for its luxurious resorts, world-class shopping, and endless glitzy entertainment. A summary of Dubai would not be complete without a mention of the innovative and exciting architecture including the iconic Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building, the Palms Islands – the man-made palm-shaped archipelago and the World Islands – a similar project constructed in the shape of a world map.
Beyond Dubai, the UAE offers something for everyone. Abu Dhabi is home to many historical sites, such as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the largest mosques in the world, and the Yas Island Marina, which offers a wide range of watersports and recreational activities. The city also boasts many high-end resorts where visitors can indulge in luxurious spa treatments and fine dining.
Away from the man-made structures and skyscrapers, visitors looking for a change of pace should explore the natural beauty of the other emirates. Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah offer a perfect escape with rugged mountains and pristine beaches perfect for a spot for hiking and rock climbing, while the crystal-clear waters of Fujairah are perfect for snorkeling and diving. Both emirates are also known for their Bedouin culture and heritage with traditional markets, camel rides and desert safaris.
For those looking for a more active holiday, there is an array of options such as skiing and snowboarding at the Ski Dubai, hot air balloon rides and desert safaris and not forgetting the choice of world-renowned golf courses. Anchoring your luxury charter yacht just off the coast allows plenty of opportunity for water sports as many yachts have exciting collections of toys and expert crews.
The diverse emirates are a melting pot of differing cuisine, and visitors can experience traditional Arabian food at a Bedouin-style camp in the desert or enjoy a fine dining experience at one of the many top-rated international restaurants.
The UAE is a year-round destination, with warm temperatures even in the winter months. If you want to avoid the height of summer, the cooler months between October and April are the best time to visit while those who enjoy high temperatures will be comfortable in the hottest time of year from May to September.
There is a huge choice of luxury yachts for charter around Dubai and the UAE, whether you prefer a contemporary motor yacht or a more traditional sailing boat. Why not visit the Dubai International Boat Show for ideas and inspiration before making your final decision?
