Will Boot Düsseldorf 2024 Meet Your Expectations

Boot Düsseldorf 2024

Let’s Meet at Boot Düsseldorf 2024

I’ve been there many times before. Although it’s a 200 km trip for me to get there it’s feasable in one day.

It provides an excellent chance to witness various Rigid Inflatable Boats in person.

After all the Düsseldorf International Boat Show, in Germay, also known as “boot Düsseldorf”, is a significant global event for boat enthusiasts and watersports fanatics.

Presented below is the map. Is it too small? Obtain the larger version here.

Miami Boat Show Dates

The Miami Boat Show is open from February 15 till 19 in 2023, is truly a huge event showing the best boats around. The organizers call it “The Ultimate Boater’s Destination”. That’s quite a statement.

The owner is the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA). Their members manufacture an estimated 80% of marine products used in North America.

I wonder if – and how many – Rigid Inflatable Boat brands are on display. Let me know!

I”ve collected some RIB videos in Miami here. Quite some very well-known brands.

The Boatlife Boatshow 2023 is just around the corner. Four days of quality time in three halls.

“Arguably the biggest part of the show, expect to see over 100 powerboat and RIBs at the show, the majority in the sub 40 ft market and many, many trailerable boats.”

If you’re looking for a RIB I have an article for you that tells you in 10 thoughts what to consider. And find out here if a Rigid Inflatable Boat is really safe.
