Yas Marina to Host Abu Dhabi’s First Used Boat Show

12th July 2015

Abu Dhabi, July 2015: This October, Yas Marina will host a first-of-its-kind Used Boat Show for second hand boats, pleasure crafts, jet-skis and watersport equipment. On October 9th and 10th, Yas Marina will invite boating and watersport enthusiasts to enjoy a weekend of browsing the show, live entertainment, workshops and activities whilst sampling the vast array of food and beverages on offer.

An event for all the family to enjoy, the Used Boat Show will offer something for everyone with a range of on land and on sea activities, giving boating enthusiasts and novices alike the chance to  experience ‘life on the water’ with friends and family.

Cedric Le Rest, General Manager of Yas Marina commented, ‘The launch of the Used Boat Show marks a really exciting step towards strengthening Abu Dhabi’s boating community. In recent times, the demand and interest from boat owners for such an event has really grown and we are responding to the gap in Abu Dhabi’s market with this initiative which will bring buyers, sellers and boating enthusiasts together.’

Used boat owners and brokers who wish to exhibit their boat or watercraft at the show are encouraged to book  their place before July 30th in order to exhibit free of charge and choose between Yas Marina’s ‘Boat Trailer’ and ‘On Water’ exhibitor packages. Boating retailers and brands looking to gain exposure through this event should also book their place before July 30th in order to enjoy discounted rates on a range of exhibition booths. A line up of first-class marine, boating and lifestyle brands will also exhibit their latest products over the weekend.

The Used Boat Show @ Yas Marina is open to the public with access free of charge. Visitors who purchase a boat during the show will receive one month free berthing at Yas Marina, valid from October 10th to November 10th, 2015.

The Yas Marina Used Boat Show is supported by Boat Trader UAE magazine; the UAE’s leading resource to buy, sell, and rent new and used boats and watersport equipment.

The Yas Marina Used Boat Show is also supported by Time Out Abu Dhabi. In a city as cosmopolitan as Abu Dhabi, with new openings every week, people need more than Google to make the most of what’s going on. Since 2002, Time Out Abu Dhabi has been the go-to playbook for both the savvy resident and the first-time visitor, the spirited hipster and the hard-to-please sophisticate. Each week in print and 24 hours a day on the web, lively features drill deep into trends and happenings (or deflate the hype), while easily browsable sections covering 11 categories and hundreds of events offer compact, muscular reviews and pithy, opinionated listings.
