Croatia Online - Split Boat Show April 2007

Spring is here and it’s time for the Split Boat Show again. Hopefully the work on Split’s Riva should be finished by the 14th April 2007, when the show opens, and Dalmatia’s capital will be fit to welcome its visitors. At the moment there’s a flurry of activity to get everything ready but progress seems to be good.

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 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 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.

Opening hours for the show are 10am to 7pm except on the first and last days. The show opens on 14th April (noon to 7 pm) and closes on 22nd April (10am to 6pm). To avoid disappointment in the event that some of the exhibitors pack up early, try and get their in the morning of the last day.

Could we have some photos of the new Riva once it's finished?
