…not exactly, yet not too far from the truth. Between March 6th and 9th 2014 Austria welcomes one of the most important and most influential boat fairs in Central and Eastern Europe.
It is the Austrian Boat Show also known as Boot Tulln 2014 where some 350 exhibitors from nautical sector are going to show their latest inventions and products.
Fascination by water sports inspired the organizers to pay special attention to manufacturers of sporting sailing and motor vessels, turbo-jet water scooters, nature friendly electric vessels, sporty catamarans, kayaks, canoes, stand-up-paddling boards, surfboards, scuba diving gear, sailing gear and clothes and many more.
The organizers did not forget that a large number of charter clients comes from Central and Eastern Europe so a special section is dedicated to them.
Tourist and travel section of the fair will be presenting major charter companies and fleets, sailing schools, marinas and sailing destinations as well as the most attractive diving spots, diving schools, kite and wind surfing spots and schools, travel and accommodation offer.
Additionally, Boot Tulln 2014 will give the excellent opportunity for all those who consider purchase, refit, maintenance or investment in nautical infrastructure at the Mediterranean. Some regulations regarding tax system and legislative that concern coastline construction building were recently changed, especially in Croatia.
Leisure sailing fans will be able to observe the latest offer from renowned shipyards such as Bavaria, Beneteau, Dufour, Hanse or Elan as well as less known but equally interesting such as Alubat Ovni, Brenta, J-Boats, Ege Yat and many more.
Among motor yachts, Bayliner, Cranchi, Galeon, Menorquin, Regal and many more confirmed their appearance.
The 42nd edition of the fair will be held from March 6th to 9th on the banks of Europe’s longest river Danube.

Parents of kids aging between 6 and 15 will have to pay 2 € if they wanted to show their children ‘big boats’.
