Boat show opens in Gibraltar in April

The 1st Gibraltar International Boat Show (GIBS) is to run from April 9-12 this year at Ocean Village Marina, Gibraltar’s largest residential and leisure complex. The inaugural four-day event will offer free access to the public, with the costs being met by the organisers, sponsors and the venue.

“A boat show is more a necessity than a luxury for Gibraltar due to its proximity to some of the finest cruising waters and marinas in southern Europe,” says John Wood, part of the boat show team.

Able to accommodate the largest superyachts, Ocean Village harbour is the starting point for high-profile events such as the Blue Water Round the World Rally and Rally Antigua. Gibraltar itself receives around 250 calls from cruise ships throughout the year.
