If you would try to find information about the show on the internet you may be misled with several versions of the date and venue of the show. Can one exhibition – Istanbul International Boat Show – take its place in several venues at the different time?

Yes, of course! This point was proved by organizers that took a simple and elegant decision – they divided show in two parts.

The first one takes place in spring (April-May period) at the Golden Horn, historical centre of Istanbul. One can see here old and relatively old yachts. Some are very affordable to any yachtsmen, others are playing a role of historical attraction.

The second part of the show takes place in fall, in Pendik – a town that is situated very close to Istambul. The best old exhibits as well as all the novelties of the year are transported here to Marinturk marina. The yachtsman that wants to purchase new and chic vehicle should definitely come here.

Istanbul International Boat Show is slightly similar to Chinese shows. Everybody comes there from all over the region to look at the large amount of yachts. There is a delightful ambience that makes everyone forget about crisis and problems. You can easily find an affordable yacht of high quality here. The technical characteristics of such a boa can be very similar to those of European and American boats. Independent of when you decided to visit Istanbul International Boat Show – in spring or in fall – you will not be disappointed.
