The International Boat and Lifestyle Show starts in Durban today.
If you love boats and the call of the sea then don’t miss out on the International Boat and Lifestyle show in Durban. The two-part event, which promises to be fun for the whole family will take place at the Durban Marina on Wilson Wharf and includes a display of boats, luxury yachts and catamarans. While the lifestyle section of the event will cater for outdoor enthusiasts and fishing fanatics.
It’s going to be a cracker, with a huge range of incredible boats of all shapes and sizes, from one-man dinghies to island-hopping luxury catamarans, and everything in between. Our Lifestyle section will feature luxury vehicles, towcars, SUV’s and 4×4’s, caravans and outdoor equipment, with something for everyone!
There will be added attractions for all, from the kids play area, yummy foods in the catering court, free boat rides for kids and a whole lot more.
Co-organiser, Barry Meehan says the vessels are not just from Durban, Cape Town, and Knysna but have also been imported from Australia.
“The boats are collectively valued at R80-million to R100-million this year – which is a record for us. This event is firmly entrenched as one of the key events of the July holiday season for the city, it showcases Durban’s unique outdoor lifestyle,” he said.
Boating World – which has partnered with the event since its inception – will be exhibiting four of its own luxury collection.
