  • The Valencian boat show brings together the main brands in the sector and offers five days to experience the sea, from 28 October to 1 November at La Marina de València.

Five days, nearly a hundred exhibitors, more than 70 dry and afloat boats and a full schedule of activities. The Valencia Boat Show, València’s boat show, celebrates its 14th edition from 28 October to 1 November at La Marina de València, with a powerful selection of new products from the sector’s leading brands and 20% new exhibitors.

The presentation of the event was held this morning in the presence of the director of the Valencia Boat Show, Eduardo Gil, the deputy general manager of La Marina de València, Evarist Caselles and the director of the Tourism Centre of the Valencia Provincial Council, Xavi Pasqual, among others.

“With the current situation of the economy and the supply chain, it is an achievement that we are presenting this show today with the same numbers and data of previous editions, which encourages us to be very optimistic. I think this comes from a great joint effort of the organisation, which this year has the incorporation of Feria Valencia with La Marina de Valencia, which is the best setting for this event and the momentum of the sector, through the Union of Nautical Companies. We also have 20% of new exhibitors, which reinforces us as an attractive event for the sector at a national level. Once again we will have a part open to the public with a battery of activities, and a professional part dedicated to the marketing of purely nautical products,” said the director of the Valencia Boat Show, Eduardo Gil.

“The Marina is the space in which we want to highlight the value of sailing and the sea, which is precisely the origin of these facilities, which are here to make more sailing and more sea. La Marina de València, Feria Valencia and the Valencia Boat Show, hand in hand with the institutions, work together to bring sailing to the public, for which we have the support of València Turisme de la Diputació de València”, said the deputy general manager of La Marina de València, Evarist Caselles.

In 14 editions, the Valencian show has managed to consolidate itself as one of the main nautical events in the country, and a powerful generator of business for the territory, proving to be a show for decision making and sales.

Great successes and novelties of the year
The Valencia Boat Show will be attended by the main brands and shipyards, which will present a selection of new boats, including the year’s greatest successes and new products. The exhibition will be complemented by a full programme of activities to bring the sea closer to the general public.

Visitors will be able to find boats of between 4 and 16 metres in length and with prices ranging from 9,500 to 1,786,000 euros, as well as a wide range of complements, engines, sails, rigging, services, moorings and accessories.

As every year, the event will also feature the leading brands of marine engines: Man, Yanmar, Suzuki Marine, FRT Iveco, Solé Diesel, Scania, Mitsubishi, Mercury.

The only show with sea trials
One of the great attractions of this boat show is the possibility for interested buyers to try out the boats at sea, thanks to the exceptional conditions of La Marina de València and its sheet of water, which make it a unique event.

Sailing towards sustainability
Innovation and sustainability will once again take centre stage at La Marina de València, with numerous proposals for boats and electric motors, solutions and accessories focused on generating a lower environmental impact.

Five days to experience the sea
Sailing through the interior of the historic port of Valencia, taking a ride on a jet ski, discovering the parts of a boat, enjoying the new experience of cycling on the water, or listening to the protagonists of an ocean race are just some of the activities that the event has prepared for lovers of the sea and all those who want to discover its exciting sports.

Three zones and a route
The Valencian boat show has a unique route that allows visitors to progressively immerse themselves in the world of the sea and its sports.

The first part, Discover sailing, is free to enter and brings together exhibitors of clothing, accessories, yacht clubs and marinas, as well as boat hire companies, sailing clubs and water sports, which will allow visitors to take their first steps into the world of the sea.

The Vive la nautica area is also free of charge and has an exhibition aimed at visitors who are familiar with water sports but have not yet taken the step of buying a boat.

For those already initiated and those interested in buying a sailing or motor boat, the Passion for sailing area brings together the exhibition of boats from the most important brands on the national and international scene, as well as engines, electronics, fittings, sails, marinas and other services.

The Valencia Boat Show has been created and promoted by the Unión de Empresas Náuticas (UEN), and is organised by Feria Valencia, and La Marina de València. It has MAPFRE as official insurer, Renfe as official transport, and the sponsorship of Valencia Mar, Helly Hansen and Nautical Channel. It is also grateful for the institutional support of Turisme Comunitat Valenciana, València Turisme (Diputació de València), and Ajuntament de València through the Concejalía de Turismo and Visit Valencia.
