Boot 2017

Nov 20, 2016

More than 360 manufacturers of sailing boats and yachts, multihull boats, catamarans, day sailer boats and dinghies will present their products at boot Düsseldorf, 48th International Boat Show, to be held from January 21 – 29, 2017 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Halls 14 – 17 will be transformed into an enormous sailing center, making boot the most important platform worldwide for the presentation of all classes and kinds of sailing. 


“Nothing will be left to be desired in our sailing halls. A very wide range of boats will be on show and we will even be able to record further growth in the multihull and day sailer sectors. As a passionate sailor, I am already looking forward to the active and exciting sailing atmosphere in the halls”, said boot 2017 Director PetrosMichelidakis.


The market leaders Jeanneau, Bénéteau, Bavaria and Hanse will be represented again, highlighting interesting advances in their development operations. Other exhibitors will include Hallberg Rassy, Dufour, X Yachts, Oyster CNB and Swan. A detailed list of all the exhibitors and the boats they will be presenting at boot 2017 is online at


“boot is not just a platform for boats and yachts. It has also been committed to promoting sailing for many years now,” added PetrosMichelidakis. Düsseldorf sailor ConstanzeStolz is an excellent example –

she is training to take part in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo in the 470 class and boot Düsseldorf is one of her supporters and sponsors.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
