The nautical world anchors in the Barcelona Boat Show

Oct 13, 2021

Wings, less consumption and a more sustainable design and materials are the trends of the nearly one hundred novelties the international marine industry will present in Barcelona. 

From the 12th to the 17th of October, Port Vell in Barcelona will host the Barcelona International Boat Show of year 2021, consolidating as an international reference for the nautical industry. Also, 15 models will be competing to become the Best European Boat of the year. 

Amongst the new boats we will be able to see we focus on the Italians Absolute Navetta 58 and Arcadia Sherpa 60, the German Bavaria Vida 33 and Bavaria SR 41, the French Bénéteau GT 36 HB or Bénéteau GT 41 and the Spanish Astilux Alexa 37 and Astilux 900 SD. 

The Absolute Navetta 58 is a new incorporation by Absolute Yachts. If you like watching The Boat Show on Nautical Channel, you might remember the Absolute Navetta 64 from the same shipyard: 


Day cruisers with open, wide terraces and platforms on the laterals that increase the space of leisure are the main trend of the biggest yacht brands this year. However, sustainable options are also in the eye of nautical enthusiasts as they present less fuel consumption and better electrical efficiency. We will be able to see eight new trends in motorization, 3 of them with electric propulsion systems from Yamaha, Vetus and Bellmarine-Transfluid
