Although some visitors noticed an apparent lack of quantity – the visitors could not have been described as “arriving in droves” – Informa stressed that the show “has become known for its quality: quality products, quality exhibitors and quality visitors”.
Many exhibitors told the organisers they had made good contacts and sales leads, and local yacht dealer Lee Marine was reported as making several sales at the show, including a Jeanneau 53 sailing yacht.
“The display of boats in the marina is exceptional. The boat line-up is of the highest quality and the average boat size has increased, too,” said Andy Dowden, Pimex show director. The largest boat in the show was a 92-foot yacht from Persching.
