Croatia Online - Split Boat Show April 2007
Croatia Online will be based at the Boat Show for most of the time, on the stand of one of our associates, Marina Facility Solutions Ltd (MFS). MFS will be exhibiting the normal wide range of marina equipment as well as the very latest designs for electricity and water pedestals. Check out their website http://www.marinafacilitysolutions.com/ for more information on what they do.
Some Facts and Figures On the Boat Show
It started in 1999 so this is the ninth boat show, increasing exponentially in size every year.
It’s on between 14th and 22nd April 2007
Last year, exhibitors from 18 countries exhibited over 400 vessels on 120,000 sq meters of space and attracted 50,000 visitors
From memory, last year’s entrance price was about £5 and shouldn’t be increasing significantly this year. Look at the website http://www.croatiaboatshow.com/ for more information.
If you like boats then its something to build a trip to Split around though don’t expect the sort of entertainment you’d find at the London Boat Show. Also don’t expect quite the number, size and opulence of superyachts that you would find at more established shows. This side of the show is expanding but it will be a while before it can compete with London and elsewhere in this respect.
If you’re in the neighbourhood, please come and see us. Otherwise we’ll be posting the latest Boat Show news here on Croatia Online.
It’s also the week that Time Out’s new Magazine for Visitors to Croatia will be on the news stands so that will add to the excitement.
