First Taiwan International Boat Show announced


Organized by Bureau of Foreign Trade, MOEA and Kaohsiung City Government, implemented by TAITRA and supported by Taiwan Yacht Industry Association (TYIA), the first Taiwan International Boat Show will be held from Thursday, May 8 until Sunday, May 11, 2014, at the newly inaugurated Kaohsiung Exhibition Center.

The history of Taiwan's yacht manufacturing industry can be traced back to the 1960s. Over the past five decades, the industry at first flourished, then internationalized during the 80s, before experiencing a rapid decline in the 90s. Now, following industrial transformation and the development of proprietary brands in Taiwan, the exquisite craftsmanship, high level of customization and superiority of Taiwan's yacht industry has once again gained recognition from global buyers. As the capital of Taiwan's yacht industry, Kaohsiung was chosen as the city to organize the 2014 Taiwan International Boat Show.

The 2014 Taiwan International Boat Show is the only professional exhibition of yachts, yacht-related equipment and the marine industry in Taiwan; it is also the only indoor boat exhibition in Asia that showcases a variety of powerboats, vessels, accessories, maintenance services, water recreational activities, tourism and other related products and services.

As the first Taiwan International Boat Show, TYIA appeals to all its members to attend the event. The most spectacular yachts and vessels of this exhibition will be displayed in the columnless, 18 meter lofted south hall of the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center. The world's tenth largest yacht manufacturer, Horizon, will exhibit three luxury yachts, the 110-foot RP series – which is also the largest yacht on display at this exhibition – as well as an 88-foot and a 56-foot yacht.
