The First Cochin International Boat Show to be held from September 26

The first Cochin International Boat Show (CIBS) will be held from September 26 to 28, 2018 at KTDC’s Bolgatty Palace Event Centre, here. It will be inaugurated by Alphons Kannanthanam, Union Minister of State for Tourism.

The organisers said that there is no shortage of opportunities to enjoy Kerala’s coastal or inland waterways. As an industry event, the CIBS 2018 reflects the tremendous enthusiasm that Kerala have for spending time in and around the water. With many types of boats on display, and all the gear to go along with them, the Cochin International Boat Show 2018 leaves no doubt about the many ways individuals and families can do so.

They added that CIBS will be a path breaking event within the Indian sub-continent region, with many of the leading International brands being represented through their Indian dealers and exhibiting alongside the leading yacht brands including Princess, Marina, Bayliner, ClassNK and many indigenous boat manufacturers from Kerala too! The CIBS event means that, especially for local boat builders, there is an opportunity for launch of their latest models while many other brands will use this event for their national debuts.

Apart from the boat suppliers, the exhibitors will include a full range of other stakeholders in the recreational & leisure boating market. These include marinas, engines, navigational and other systems and equipment, and other supply and service providers. The CIBS event is not just about boats and yachts, but is strongly promoted as an event which covers all water sports and activities that can happen in the State.  In addition to mainstream craft such as trailer boats, sports boats and luxury sailing and motor yachts and superyachts, CIBS also includes waterskiing and wakeboarding, kayaking, scuba diving, fishing and more.

Many locals are ready to enjoy recreational time on the water each year, and with KRML now focussing on developing the Ernakulam District’s inland boating and marine facilities into a world class facility. Well-equipped marinas and marine recreational and sports activities need to be encouraged by the Government, so there’s high-quality infrastructure in place for boaters and marine enthusiasts of all persuasions. Kerala is fast becoming a well-established first-choice destination for cruising and inshore watersports for the local and international visitors.
