BOOT 2020 PreviewWith almost 250,000 visitors, boot Düsseldorf is the world's largest boat and water sports fair and it’s getting close and tickets are now online. With 17 packed buildings, here’s some of what the show holds for 2020.

Motor yachts between 30 and 60 feet long in hall 1

The new hall 1 in Düsseldorf is bright and well-lit providing exhibitors with an excellent setting to present their products and services. At boot, it will become the home for medium-sized motor yachts between 30 and approximately 60 feet long (10 to 20 metres) that have inboard motors. The exhibitors here will include such major manufacturers as Jeanneau, Bénéteau, Bavaria, Sealine or Greenline.

visitors will be able to see a wide range of medium-sized motor yachts that is unique under the same roof anywhere in the world. These yachts, which are particularly popular with families, combine great fun with comfort and the feeling of being able to enjoy the flair of a home of one’s own when on holiday.

BOOT 2020 PreviewHalls 5, 6 and 7: sheer luxury with tenders and superyachts
NEW: superboats in Hall 5 

Hall 5 at boot is devoted to the growing segment of luxury tenders, chase boats and shadow boats. The term “superboats” covers everything that is luxurious, fast, innovative and elegant. Such exclusive brands as Sacs, Wally, Frauscher, DeAntonio, Boesch, Fjord, Windy and Van Dutch will be presenting the latest developments in this segment. Chase and Shadow boats become very trendy, not only for superyacht owners. The luxurious equipment of such a boat can be designed entirely according to the wishes of the owner. This means that individually designed surroundings are guaranteed even when an excursion is made with friends to go fishing or to visit a gorgeous secluded bay.
Hall 6 remains the centrepiece of the luxury segment at boot, as in the past. The leading shipyards in the superyacht industry are on board here, exhibiting their streamlined top-of-the line products. Anyone who would then like to book his berth at one of the exclusive superyacht marinas like Venice or Porto Novi in Montenegro as well can do this directly on the gallery in hall 6. Hall 7a rounds off the luxury segment at boot with the superyacht show.

BOOT 2020 PreviewSailing in Halls 15 to 17: sailing is the soul of water sports

Sailing is the water sport! Sailing was the first way that people travelled along rivers and across oceans: the first known picture of a ship with sails is on an Egyptian drawing from Luxor that goes back to the period around 5000 BC!

From 2020 onwards, three halls are the home of sailing at boot Düsseldorf. The major players in this sector will be there too: The Bénéteau Group, Hanse, Bavaria, Hallberg Rassy and other well known ship yards for bigger sailing yachts like Oyster, CNB and Nautors Swan are on board again.

Together with the manufacturers of such innovative new boats as Bente, they will paint a diverse picture of a progressive sailing community with plenty of international flair. Spiced by the appearances of globally renowned sailing figures like Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, such up-and-coming young sailors as Laura Dekker with her new sailing project for young people and blue water sailing experts like Sönke Roever in the “Sailing Center”, the sailing halls reflect a lively and very emotional community. In co-operation with its media partner, the German publisher SVG Verlag, boot is launching the “Start Sailing” campaign (Hall 15). Newcomers and anyone else who is interested can benefit from the know-how provided by the experts here.

Halls 9, 10 and 11: huge selection of RIBs, dinghies, accessories, inboard motors and equipment.

Plus there’s much more in terms of accessories and gear that just doesn’t get to this side of the Atlantic.
Accessories, inboard motors and equipment are concentrated in halls 9 and 10 as well as part of hall 11.

Halls 13 and 14: “Travel World” highlights the most beautiful holiday destinations by lakes and oceans

The water tourism halls 13 and 14 with “Travel World” are right next to the diving halls. Chartering agencies, marinas, houseboat providers as well as hotels, cruise companies and water sports regions are there to help visitors decide where to spend their next holiday by and on the water. A varied program including tips about holiday destinations, charter and houseboat holidays will be presented on the “Travel World” stage. These halls are the holiday and tourism centre at boot.

The wide range of different destinations is supplemented by hotels that offer water sports activities in all their possible forms. There can be no doubt that even people who have not been actively involved in sports up to now will be inspired and encouraged here to enjoy their holiday by the water. Travel has developed into a particular highlight at boot and takes up a large proportion of the space in Halls 11 to 14 in the meantime: from diving hotspots to holidays by, on or in the water.

Free arrival and departure with public transport 
The most relaxing trip to boot is by public transport. And with the online-ticket it is also free of charge. This applies to travel to and from the Düsseldorf exhibition grounds by Rheinbahn in the tariff zone of the Rhine-Ruhr public transport system (VRR, 2nd class, in surcharge-free trains in price level D).
