Dubai Golf's Pre-Owned Boat Show Opening Soon at Dubai Creek Marina

Dubai Golf has today announced a raft of family activities guests can enjoy at the forthcoming Pre-Owned Boat Show 2013, which runs from the 21 - 23rd November.

The event, held at the iconic Dubai Creek Marina, is free to enter and will see visitors and boating  enthusiasts of all ages from across the Middle East treated to rowing and stand-up paddle races, as well a special race featuring Dubai Surf Ski Club. Other facilities include the Fiesta Bodega Island, a Spanish themed food and beverage experience, as well as Kids Zone by Mumzworld which will feature dance classes, a bouncy castle, face painting, wall climbing and much more.

Commenting on the event, Abdullah Ali Al Noon, Marina Operations Manager - Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, said; "The 2012 Pre-Owned Boat Show  was a great success, with 29 yachts sold over the three days at an accumulated value of more than AED 9.5 million, but it is not just business as the event will have fun for the whole family. We welcomed 7,200 people to the event last year and look forward to even more visitors in 2013."

The event, now in its 4th year, is sponsored by MIDEX AIRLINES and is the only event of its type in the region, enabling boat buyers to effectively "buy and sail" on the same day thanks to direct access to sellers, financiers and insurers will be present on-site throughout the three days. It is open to buyers and sellers from across the Middle East.

Supported by event partner, Arabian Scandinavian Insurance Company (Ascana), the Pre-Owned Boat Show coincides with the 20th Anniversary of the Dubai Creek Golf Club - a major milestone in the history of the club - and will feature exhibitors including Mercedes, Arabian Yachts, Al Jeer Marina and JPS Yacht Services.

Mr Jassim Albastaki, Director General of MIDEX AIRLINES, said: "The 2013 Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show is just around the corner and the interest levels have been fantastic, from the public, exhibitors and boat buyers and sellers.  Owning a boat is more affordable than some people may think, so we encourage everyone to come down, see the boats and enjoy an activity filled three days."
