The Barcelona International Boat Show was held October 10 – 14, 2018, and Canadian Yachting Onboard was there for you. Over 250 exhibitors displayed 700 boats, including an impressive display of 165 large boats in the water.
This year, the show incorporated the first Nautic Tech International Forum, showcasing thirty startups from around the world.
One highlight of the show was E2SOL, a European company specializing in high tech military grade solar systems. Readers will be most interested in PowerDocks, the world’s first commercially available line of solar electric docks called Blue Isles™.
