Over 250,000 visitors attended the Düsseldorf International Boat Show, more commonly known as Boot Düsseldorf, to see the 2000+ exhibitors at the world’s largest boat show for motor boats and water sports between 18-26 January. Boot Düsseldorf is a truly international show with visitors representing 106 countries (24% from outside Germany) coming from as far afield as the USA and Canada, as well as The Netherlands, Belgium, UK, Switzerland, Italy and France. Over the nine days, 36,185 people visited the combined exhibitor display area for Simrad®, B&G, Lowrance and C-MAP, up on last year’s numbers with an increased level of engagement and an ‘average dwell time’ of 14m 13s. Navico brands Lowrance, Simrad® and B&G were all showcasing new ‘hero’ products for the first-time in Europe.
- Lowrance’s Hook Reveal with Autotuning Sonar and now FishReveal™ making the fish easier to see on one screen.
- The new Halo 20/20+ radar that delivers a full 360-degree sweep every second, giving an almost real-time view at close range, invaluable in busy harbours.
- Simrad® NSO evo3S the ultimate glass bridge system gives stunning clarity, faster processor and total control of the vessel’s onboard electronics and systems, at a single touch
- B&G’s Zeus3S Glass Helm multifunction display system, offering unbeatable speed and performance for larger sailing yachts
There were a number of world premieres by our Volume Boat Builder partners including the impressive Sunseeker Manhattan 68 (housing Simrad® NSO evo3S); the Axopar A37 model and the Brabus Shadow 900 both fitted with custom Simrad® dashboard.
It was also a German premiere for the Fjord 38XP model (Simrad®), the Dehler 30 OD (B&G Triton and Zeus³) and X-Yachts X4.0 (B&G), plus many more, ensuring the show lived up to its reputation as the platform for boat premieres.
