Boat Show - Barcelona 2013 Preview

In view of recent economic patterns in the last two years the Barcelona boat show has reinvented itself.  An important move was made last year when the Spanish show changed its dates from November to late September.  For this year edition the show signals another important change that of moving all the exhibition in Port Vell, the harbour of main city Barcelona where most of the nautical stuff happens.  Starting on the 24 and ending the 29 of September that will be five days of showcasing the latest new models from most of the renowned European and US builders, and most important also seeing these in the waters.  The Spanish yards like Astondoa, and Rodman will showcase what they showed in Cannes. An important new model is surely the new Astondoa 63 Top Deck, and interesting concept from designer Luiz de Basto, and the largest Spanish boat building company.
