The German boating extravaganza is well underway and we have snapped some of the hottest new boats at Boot Düsseldorf 2016

Boot Dusseldorf 2016With an expected audience of more than 200,000 people, the 2016 Boot Düsseldorf Boat Show is on a scale that few shows can match.

This nine-day event is one of the biggest in Europe, so we’ve sent Hugo Andreae and Jack Haines across the Channel to get the inside story on this year’s show, which features more than 1,800 exhibitors from 60 countries.

Key launches for 2016 include the hotly anticipated Axopar 37, Nimbus 405 Fly, Arcadia Sherpa, Steeler FF48, Drettman Explorer Yacht, Boarnstream Elegance 1200 and Delphia 1150 Voyage.

There’s no shortage of British representation either, with the Sunseeker Predator 57 fresh from its win at the 2016 Motor Boat Awards, and the worldwide debut of the Princess 30M.
