The only event of its kind in the region, the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show brings together sellers and buyers of pre-owned yachts from around the region for a one stop-shop, providing yachting enthusiasts value and choice in a fun-filled family setting featuring entertainment for adults and kids alike.

“Based on the high turnout and success of last year’s show, along with the increased demand we have seen by buyers and interest from sponsors leading up to this year’s event, we expect this year’s event to be even bigger and better,” Mustafa Al Hashimi, Club Manager of the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club, said on his expectations for this year’s show.

“We are accommodating this growth in demand by increasing the space available for boats on water and land to over 75 this year. This may go up further still depending on demand. The marina related retail area has also been significantly expanded, seeing an increase of 20 per cent, covering everything from navigation units to boat engines.”

“After seeing how successful the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat show was last year, we knew immediately that we had to make this a mainstay in Dubai’s annual events calendar. Our three year commitment reiterates our belief that the Pre-Owned Boat Show is not just an excellent opportunity to purchase affordable vessels and equipment but is also increasing accessibility to this wondering pastime. It’s truly a celebration of life on the water for the entire family all enjoyed on the beautiful edges of Dubai Creek,” Midex Airlines Director-General Jassim Al Bastaki said.

Combining great deals on pre-owned vessels of all sizes (from 27 feet up to 165 feet) from world renowned manufacturers, alongside leading marine traders covering finance, insurance, accessories, maintenance services and supplies, the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show offers absolutely everything an aspiring or current boat owner could possibly need in one convenient location.
