Kuwait opens the calendar for the region’s annual shows with its settled early February dates.
The 4th Edition of the KUWAIT YACHT SHOW 2016 runs from 1st till 4th February at Marina Crescent.
Being well placed so early in the year we can once again expect a number of regional and Middle East premieres and launches. Year by year, the Kuwait Yacht Show grows in size and stature. In just three years it has already made an indelible mark on the region’s marine scene.
The market is almost exclusively an imported one for small boats and yachts with a small network of boat distributors associated with all of the major Gulf boat builders and European and US shipyards.
About The Venue

The development extends along the sea front to include a walking pathway and three additional retail developments known as Marina Waves, Marina Waterfront and Marina Walk, which provide its customers with prime views of the Gulf. The Marina houses the Marina Yacht Club, an exclusive serviced club with space for 144 berths. Overlooking the Yacht Club is Marina Hotel, a prestigious 5-star hotel situated directly on the beach with ready access to the Marina Mall and Marina Crescent. The Marina also includes the Salwa Sabah Al Ahmed Ball Room as a multi-functional ballroom.
