Boating is one of the most popular outdoor activities in Malta, and over the last few number of years, Malta has seen massive expansion in the marine sector and is now in fact a yachting hub in the Mediterranean. After all, owning a boat gives you the freedom to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the island and undoubtedly, residing on an island facilitates boat ownership.

The Valletta Boat Show, an annual event held over the span of four days, is a remarkable celebration and showcase event which transforms the location into a nautical paradise.

This year, the 8th Edition of the Valletta Boat Show was no different. It included the best that the local yachting scene has to offer. Quite a varied list of exhibitors were present at the recently renovated Dock 1 in Cospicua. Since its first ever show in 2007, the Valletta Boat Show has increased rapidly in its popularity, making it one, if not, the biggest boating event that the country has to offer.

This edition of the Boat Show saw weather covering the four seasons in four days, with rain, wind, warm and sunny days throughout the whole show. However people were not disheartened by the unstable weather and many visitors gathered around the yachts on show and the exhibitors. The atmosphere was an exciting one too, with the whole Dock offering a various array of atmosphere, setting off a cosmopolitan vibe at the launch party, a buzzing one with all the excitement and also a lively atmosphere with the families that attended, mostly on the Sunday afternoon.

A number of events were held over the span of the four days, such as the opening ceremony, product launches, boat exhibitions and a cocktail reception. In fact, the Boat Show exclusively hosted the Chaudron 45 G-Edition, a boat built exclusively for Fabrizio Giugiaro by Chaudron and was in the water for the first time ever in Malta during the Boat Show.
