Boat Show Season 2017 - Coming Up
Boat Show Season 2017
Owning a yacht almost always leaves you wanting another. It is contagious and many are bitten by the 3 footitis around this time of year. After summer many realise that the kids are bigger and the crew needs more space. It is time to start planning which boat shows to visit.
Open Yard - Orust, Sweden. 25-27th of August.
One of our favourites of course. It is the largest sailboat show in Scandinavia. There will be a large number of exhibitors for boats and accessories. There will be more sailing yachts at Open Yard 2017 than ever before. Boats from at least nine different nations will be exhibited. Some of the exhibitors that have signed up for 2017 are X-Yachts, Najad, Linjett, Regina, Faurby, Hallberg-Rassy, Haber, J/Boats, CR Yachts, MF boat, Moody, Discovery, Delphia, Sirius, Finn Flyer, Nauticat, Maxi Yachts, Sweden Yachts and others. There will be several premieres. Read more here.
