By Katia Damborsky

The UAE’s premier boating event will be returning in mid March, showcasing a stellar fleet of yachts and luxury lifestyle goods for the 28th edition at the brand new Dubai Harbour. The 2021 edition is a replacement to the 2020 event, which was postponed twice in 2020 due to COVID-19.

Promising five days of boating action, the 2020 Dubai International Boat Show is one of the highlights of the yachting calendar for the UAE and wider Middle Eastern region. The event attracts visitors from around the globe, and aims to strengthen Dubai’s status as a superyacht hub.

The event was formerly held along the Dubai Canal. However this year, the show is expected to take place at the brand new Dubai Harbour.

This show location is expected to showcase close to 500 boats, split between the marina and a dedicated on-land exhibition area.

The fleet of yachts

The Dubai International Boat Show plays host to an incredible variety of vessels every year. The 2020 line-up will be no different, with a huge spectrum of boats on display, ranging from sparkling superyachts and tenders to sleek pleasure cruisers and fishing boats.

On top of this, there will also be a selection of cutting-edge watercraft that highlight the latest in modern technology.

Alongside the yachts, esteemed shipyards from all over the world will be on hand to exhibit their latest models, unveil concepts and provide details and information about their yachts.

Water toys

The Dubai International Boat Show (or DIBS) places a heavy focus on water accessories, including state-of-the-art gadgets and the latest water toys.

A dedicated lagoon will allow show-goers to trial these toys for themselves, while thrilling watertoy competitions will put on spectacular entertainment for attendees.

What’s more, there is even expected to be a dive pool in the centre of the show, allowing anyone with an interest in scuba to take to the waters in a safe and controlled environment.

Luxury retail

No boat show would be complete without a selection of exhibitors showing off the finest in luxury lifestyle offerings.

This year, there is expected to be thousands of exhibitors from across the globe, providing everything from maritime products to jewellery, footwear and swimwear. Those with an interest in cars are in luck, as DIBS 2020 will be hosting another prestige showcase of supercars.

Away from the excitement of the show, there will be plenty of social activities to take part in, including DJ sets, cocktail soirees and relaxed pop-up events.
