The 2014 China (Xiamen) International Boat Show is scheduled to be staged in Xiamen from November 7th to 10th this year.
   
The annual China (Xiamen) International Boat Show (CXIBS), one of the largest boat shows in China, is scheduled to be staged again in Xiamen from November 7th to 10th this year.
 
As one of the three professional boat shows in China, the Xiamen International Boat Show became a member of the International Federation of Boat Show Organizers (IFBSO) in 2012, which makes it the second in China and the 6th in Asian countries to be a member of IFBSO.

Exhibiting more than 300 yachts and boats from about 160 exhibitors from around the world, the boat show lived up to its reputation as the No.1 water yacht exhibition in China in 2013. By the final day of the show, 40 boats had been sold, 30% of which were purchased by Fujian buyers, and the total transactions reached RMB200 million during the event. 
 

Music Island in Wuyuan Bay
  
The 7th Xiamen International Boat Show will have 4 new highlights this year, as follows:

1. New location for more sea-friendly experiences   
 
The boat show will be relocated to an isolated artificial islet – Music Island - at Wuyuan Bay. The Music Island was created with construction waste during the reconstruction of Wuyuan Bay, covering an area of about 63,400 square meters. It has pleasant surroundings, such as a mangrove, black swans and beautiful bridges.

The new location will be connected to the yacht berths in Wuyuan Bay Marina by a floating bridge.

2. More experiential activities   
 
The organizers will arrange at least 10 main activities to help the public have a closer experience with the yachts and enjoy the joyful lifestyle brought by the yachts.

The activities will include experiential yacht cruises, yacht test rides and competitions involving canoes, kayaks and sailing boats. A special interactive experiential area will be set up on Music Island.

The 10th China Club Cup Sailing Challenge Match will be held during the 7th boat show.

3. Uninhabited islet tourism  
 
Xiamen will promote uninhabited islet tourism during the boat show this year. The city has 17 uninhabited islets with each covering an area of over 500 square meters. More professional exhibitors will be invited to provide more uninhabited islet travel options.

4. More yacht brands  
 
The organizers will select more overseas yacht brands to broaden the horizon for visitors. International renowned yacht makers such as Azimut, Sunseeker, Princess, Ferretti, Lagoon, Beneteau, Feedship, Sunreef, Jeanneau, Regal, Sessa, Majesty, Brunswick, Absolute, Sealine, Rodman and a dozen domestic yacht manufacturers will show off their yachts and boats of various sizes at the show.

A series of yacht seminars, promotions and summits will be held during the fair.
