Several thousand visitors was attracted to the opening day of the annual Limassol boat show on Thursday at the Marina of the main port city of Cyprus.
The visitors had the opportunity to view a wide range of the latest products and services offered by more than 120 exhibitors from six countries — Cyprus, Greece, Russia, Britain, Israel and Lebanon.
The organizers said they expected 25,000 visitors by the end of the show on Sunday.
“This show is intended for people who want to see impressive boats and get to know about services and boat equipment, sea sports, recreational fishing and diving,” said Aristos Aristeidou, one of the show organizers.
Apart from viewing new boats, visitors also had the opportunity to attend seminars and see the presentation of new products in the sectors of yachting and boating.
The opening day of the show was covered by media specializing in boating, including a yachting publication Yacht Way.
The magazine’s editor Daniel Counio said to Xinhua,”The yacht industry in China is developing fast. We have seen a great expansion in the last 10 years, with new boats constructed there and boat shows in different parts of the country. The yacht industry in China will certainly get bigger.”
