The 14th Croatia Boat Show, which is to be held in the Dalmatian city of Split from 17 to 22 April, will this year offer a range of new innovations by hosting three exhibitions in one.
Croatia Boat Show (CBS), Nauticus Show and Split Auto Show will take place simultaneously during the five day event in Split.
The biggest nautical event in the region will present the latest models of yachts and sailing boats, and a variety of marine equipment and engines.
"As every year, all of the strongest brands will exhibit in Split, Feretti, Pershing, Princess, Fairline, Sunseeker, Sea Ray Group, Beneteau, Jeanneau, Hans and others will come again. Despite the crisis, the show will be bigger than last year," said CBS director Vicenco Blagaic at a press conference held today (Fri) in Split.
The Nauticus Show will present charter companies, brokers, used boats, marinas, repairers, wineries and restaurants, whilst there will also be something for car lovers as a special area will be dedicated to the Split Auto Show. Robert Sormaz, technical director of the show says cars have been part of the boat show previously but not in the same capacity as this year where they will get a special dedicated area, adding that Croatian exhibitors will get the opportunity to present their products free of charge at the show.
