Experience water sports
All in all, 127.300 visitors came to boot Düsseldorf 2016 by Wednesday. The trade fair continues to be open to all water sport enthusiasts, who are welcome to look around, shop, join in and inform themselves, until Sunday. Many of the visitors are trying diving out for the first time, 17-year-old Toni, for example, who is delighted: “Diving was simply awesome, it is so much fun.” Visitors of all ages are fascinated by the water sports on show at boot Düsseldorf. Jungmichel: “boot is an experience for one and all.”

Wide range of activities
Children are attracted by the World of Pirates, while teenagers and everyone else who is young at heart are keen to try wake- and skimboarding, kitesurfing, canoeing, diving or sailing. An extensive programme of presentations and discussion forums about such subjects as cruises, starting to drive motor boats without a licence, classic sailing boats and catamarans round off the range of activities available at boot Düsseldorf 2016. 1,800 exhibitors are presenting the same number of boats and yachts, including numerous worldwide premieres, and are therefore reflecting the entire world.
