More than 5000 people have come this week to visit the Valencia Boat Show, which since the 31st of October, has been exhibiting a wide range of new boats, engines, accessories and nautical services. With just one day to go for the end of the show, the feelings of the exhibitors are positive despite the weather not being too favourable during the first three days. In addition, the boat show coincided today with the celebration of the 11th anniversary of Valencia Marina, for which entry was set at the affordable price of three euros.
“The weather logically favours a large turnout of visitors, and days like today are extremely positive. The first days we had many local visitors from Valencia, and yesterday and today we had visitors from Madrid and customers from Albacete, Murcia and Alicante,” said the representatives of Nuva Yachts, which this year is present with one of the most sought-after boats of the show, the M6 Open, the only Spanish boat nominated for the 2019 European boat of the year award. “This year is quieter, but the visitors are interesting,” said representatives of Clipper Marine, Bavaria’s distributor for Spain and Portugal.
Tomorrow will be the final day of the show, where visitors will have the last opportunity to try out the boats at sea before buying one, to purchase a jet ski, equip their boat with new sails, deck teak, electronics, engines, deck fittings or rigging, hire their insurance or purchase technical clothing or street wear from the main nautical brands, as well as costume jewellery and sunglasses with attractive discounts.
Programme of parallel activities
Included in the programme of parallel activities on the last day of the event is the talk on maritime rescue that will be given at 11 am by Ignacio Zafra, Chief Captain of the Maritime Service of the Guardia Civil in the event’s conference room. The Valencia Royal Yacht Club will also participate in the show with an exhibition of some of its Optimist class sailors, the youngest members of the club, opposite the Veles e Vents building, located in Valencia Marina.
In addition, the Business Association of Valencia Marina and València Turisme have a gastronomic plaza, “Del Tros al Plat”, where visitors can enjoy Valencian dining experiences in the sun overlooking the sea. And inside the Tinglado Nº2, Grupo La Reina offers a space to relax while enjoying a snack, lunch or just a coffee. Another option to make the most of the Valencian dock is to go sailing for half an hour in the Marina enjoying a drink and a snack for only ten euros.
A Sunday to enjoy the sea with the whole family, with alternatives for all pockets and types of sailing. This week, all things nautical are happening in Valencia Marina.
