The most highly-anticipated yacht show in the UAE, the Dubai International Boat Show returns to Dubai Harbour once again for its 32nd event filled with some of the yachting industry's most spectacular charter yachts.

Taking over the pontoons of Dubai Harbour over five days in March, the Dubai International Boat Show, also known as DIBS, annually attracts more than 25,000 visitors to discover a curated display of some of the most indulgent luxury yacht charters on the yacht rentals market, and pick up some of the latest innovative products from hundreds of exhibitors.

Annually attracting some of the world's biggest and most well-known shipyards such as Princess, Sanlorenzo and Azimut, the Dubai-based event comfortably accommodates superyachts measuring up to 160m (525ft), meaning Superyacht Avenue is guaranteed to provide some exciting ideas for your next Dubai yacht charter.

If you're looking for inspiration on what type of superyacht you'd like to charter next for a family event, or even an indulgent corporate yacht charter experience, this exclusive area of the show is an absolute must. 

In addition to the Superyacht Avenue, the pontoons around Dubai Harbour offer invaluable insight into the latest motor yachts from across the globe, with brokers and representatives of the shipyards all close at hand, ready to provide guided tours and answer any queries you may have.

Along with ongoing watersports demonstrations in the marina itself, the Dive Pool allows charter guests to take a close look at the latest water toys and learn how to get the best experience when using them during a Middle East yacht charter.
