About the Boat Show
The Dubai International Boat Show brings together prestigious high net-worth individuals from around the Middle East and the world to see the best that boat- and boat-supply-makers have to offer.
In the marina display, there are super yachts, big power boats and speed boats, sports and fishing boats.
In the outdoor display, visitors will find small- and medium-sized power boats for fishing and leisure as well as sailboats.
The indoor pavilion is where exhibitors offer all sorts of marine equipment for sale. You’ll find everything from interior designers for boats to lights and lighting to clothing to yacht charters. There are financial advisors to help you buy and insure a boat. There are also representatives from marinas and yachting destinations. And, of course, countless suppliers of everything from life vests to sound systems.
Something for Everyone
When you tire of dreaming of the super yacht lifestyle, there are plenty of other fun things to do.
Visitors can see – and participate in – diving exhibitions at the Dive Middle East Expo, which runs alongside the boat show at the Dubai International Marine Club in Mina Seyahi (“Pleasure Harbor”).
You can charter a fishing boat or enter an underwater photography contest.
You can watch daredevil stunt shows or check out sailboats.
And, there’s little chance you’ll go hungry with all the luxury food and beverage products at the show.
Beyond the Boats
You’ll want to check out the rest of Dubai before you leave the city of palm tree-shaped islands and sail-shaped skyscrapers where the average highs range from 65 degrees in January to 94 degrees in July and August.
You can spend the morning outdoors on the beach and the afternoon on the ski slopes – inside a mall.
Ski Dubai sits atop the Dubai Emirates Mall like a gigantic hovercraft. The indoor ski resort is the size of three football fields, has chair lifts and is covered with snow year-round. Ski passes are available for $50 to about $150.
You can spend the morning bartering for spices at an outdoor market and the afternoon looking for designer clothes in one of Dubai’s 95 shopping malls, including the world’s largest, the 12 million-sq. ft. Dubai Mall, which is more than twice as big as Minnesota’s Mall of America.
Dubai Fast Facts

- Oil made the city rich but it now constitutes less than 10 percent of the city’s economy. The rest is from real estate and tourism.
