Dusseldorf Boat Show
A group of us attended this show in January.
It is, in our opinion, one of the better shows available to the public with halls of (respectively) motor boats, yachts, canoes and sea kayaks, engines, accessories and ribs. The show covered some 7/8 halls each several times the size of a football pitch. It costs E10 to get in and we flew from the Isle of Man, via Manchester to Dusseldorf AND return for £148 each.
Here are some pix:
1 and 2 diesel outboards. Only 50hp at the moment but larger promised.
