The Durban International Boat & Lifestyle Show is a must see for all Durbanites and visitors who enjoy our incredible balmy weather and laid-back lifestyle.
“Everything from one-man dinghies to island hopping luxury catamarans and power boats will be on exhibition along with marine accessories and fishing gear,” promises show organizer, Barry Meehan. “Sailing schools; sailing and boating magazines will also feature strongly, as well as sailing and adventure books for your leisure reading. The show will be complemented by a huge lifestyle section featuring rugged off road vehicles, caravans, trailers and much more.”
For more than just boating enthusiasts, the Show is an ideal day out with loads of activities for all ages, including the kids. There is a sit-down food court, plus a new onsite beer garden where you can relax and take in the passing activity in the harbor. Visitors can also look forward to spot prizes and hosts of show giveaways.
