The Dubai International Boat Show is happening at Dubai Canal, Jumeriah and it kicks off on February 26
1. INSANE boats and yachts
You can get up close and personal with some of the world’s most exclusive yachts, this is an opportunity that doesn’t roll around too often, so live a little and grab it!
Look out for the beautifully designed Princess F62, the mega Sirena 64 and for a super yacht check out the Majesty 140. These are yacht GOALS.
2. Epic sea toys
Far from the humble jet ski, catch the world’s ultimate sea toys in action.
Ever heard of the Awake Ravik? This is an electric surfboard and it looks like so much fun. The show will also display Seabobs, Seacrafts, Iguana yachts and Sharkbanzs (arm bands that deter sharks). These promise to be water vehicles unlike you’ve seen before.
You can also catch the UAE Aquabike championship – these jet-ski competitors are INCREDIBLY talented and watching this stuff live is genuinely thrilling.
3. Dubai Fishing Competition
Dubai is a known fishing hub with some royals (ehem, Dubai’s Crown Prince HH Sheikh Hamdan) known as fishing enthusiasts who display impressive catches regularly. Now you can catch it all in action, as the region’s finest anglers go head-to-head using a rod and reel or a handline, while fishing from a boat.
With serious prize money up for grabs, this gets competitive!
4. Dive Mena EXPO
If you love to dive, you’ll love this. An EXPO for the diving community is taking place where you can meet diving expats and experts from all around the world, and whether you’re a regular diver or new to the sport, there’s loads to learn here.
Catch top speaker Ali Bin Thalith, who was awarded ‘international photographer of the year’ in 2018 by HIPA. He will be giving his insights into underwater photography along with sharing his passion for conversing marine environment.
5. The flying yacht
If you visited the show last year, you’ll remember this. The FOILER prototype was on display in 2018 and its preproduction will be on display at the show this year.
ENATA, a UAE based company is creating this slick revolutionary vehicle that literally makes passengers feel like they’re flying, thanks to its unique design. 1,000 hours of testing and the FOILER is ready to show in the UAE. Don’t miss this!
