Organizers said the seventh China (Xiamen) International Boat Show attracted 18,000 professional merchants and the equivalent of more than $40 million was spent at the four-day event.

The show, which wrapped up Nov. 10, was hosted by Xiamen Road & Bridge Marina Co. Ltd. and concluded on Xiamen Wuyuan Bay Yacht Harbor, Music Island.

More than 200 brands from more than 20 countries and regions, including Italy, the UK, France, Germany, the United States and Taiwan, were on display, according to show organizers.

This year's show, operating for the first time under the simple theme of “experience,” showcased a virtual flotilla of luxury yachts to visitors during the entire day, organizers said. It also included events focused on yachting, sailing and teenager OP sailing, as well as other boating and aquatic-related activities, including seven Aquashows.

As important supporting events to the show, the First Cross-strait Boat Development Summit Forum hosted a Media Group Yachting afternoon tea themed ”I'm enjoying boating in Xiamen” and the 10th China Club Cup Sailing Challenge.

Organizers said the Xiamen show ranks among the top three boat shows in China.
