In a statement, organisers said: “The deferment is made in consideration of the evolving regulations and logistics on the movement of yachts internationally, and our continued commitment to provide the maximum diversity and choice of global brands to our regional customers.”

“We look forward to your continued support and welcoming you to our new home at Dubai Harbour next year.”

The event will relocate to the new 1,100-berth marina at the region’s largest waterfront community, Dubai Harbour.

Dubai Harbour features a myriad of facilities and services that includes a state-of-the-art Harbour Master building with a complete array of yachting services, a helipad, crew facility, two fuel stations, a storage facility, a superyacht bunkering facility and pump-out services.

The marina will be one of the few in the world to host superyachts up to 160 metres in length.


Major exhibitors were quick to lend their support to the rescheduling of this major international show.

“Diversity of choice for visitors and safety are always the key considerations for Gulf Craft, so we fully support the decision to postpone the Dubai International Boat Show,” said Abeer Alshaali, Acting CEO, Gulf Craft.

“While we were looking forward to taking part in this leading industry event, we respect and value the focus of the authorities in ensuring the wellbeing of all participants, visitors and staff.”

“We are delighted that the organisers of Dubai Boat Show consulted us on the global leisure yachting developments,” said Michael Breman, Sales Director at Lürssen Yachts.

“It is the best decision for yacht builders globally for the event to take place at a more opportune time.”
