The sixth China (Xiamen) International Boat Show will be held Nov. 8-11 at Xiamen Marina in Wuyuwan Bay.

With its 300-berth capacity, the marina has one of the largest maritime boat exhibition sites in China, show organizers said.

The show will have three sections. An indoor section, in Blocks 4 to 6 of the marina and covering 5,000 square meters, will house exhibits of technical equipment and a yacht club. An outdoor area, located at Coastal Square in the marina and covering 20,000 square meters, will showcase yachts, sailboats and parts and services. An on-water area, which has numerous berths covering 30,000 square meters, will be dedicated to sailboats, yachts and test drives of some of the boats on display.

The China Association of the National Shipbuilding Association is organizing the show. Besides the boat exhibits, high-end luxury-branded goods will be on display, including helicopters and cars. There also will be a bonded warehouse for the storage of professional equipment.
