(I-Newswire) February 5, 2010 - Kicking off on Thursday 8 April, this year's Gibraltar International Boat Show intends to leave the previous in the shade with the help of a Government-backed 'Experience Zone'. Lying adjacent to the Ocean Village and Marina Bay complex, this sizeable Arena will give everyone a chance to try their hand at a range of both water- and land-based pursuits.

John Wood, Boat Show Organiser, comments, "Whilst the very nature of the event guarantees that the spotlight undoubtedly falls on the attendant yachts, we're also mindful that every visitor - old and young - wants to participate in the Show. Sports enthusiasts are in for a real treat at the Experience Zone as we have a full spectrum of activities from a climbing wall to a golf showcase, tennis lessons to rowing machines and from sailing boats to kayaks. We're thrilled that the Government is backing this Zone and together we are committed to making the 2010 Show truly memorable."

Turning attention back to the business of boats, Sunseeker has once again made a strong commitment to the Show. Their Costa del Sol dealership, headed up by Dominic Byrne, will be exhibiting nine yachts ranging from 34 to a sizeable 90 feet. With several other manufacturers signed-up, the Gibraltar International Boat Show is set to have over 20 million euros-worth of ready-to-buy boats - the perfect opportunity for visitors to start the Mediterranean season afloat.

The market leader in marine fuel, Shell Gibraltar, has also pledged allegiance to the 2010 Gibraltar International Boat Show by way of a sponsorship deal. Having served customers on the Rock for over 80 years, Shell Gibraltar is a part of the fabric of the local yachting industry supplying low-cost petrol and diesel as well as their first-rate lubricant products to vessels up to megayacht size. They're very welcome onboard with the Show for the second year running.

The Gibraltar International Boat Show will see wide range of exhibitors from the premium yacht brands through to marine electronics and property developers each benefitting from a cross-section of visitors from the UK, Spain, Portugal, Morocco and, of course, Gibraltar itself. This year, in line with demand, the Show has expanded and will be staged in two locations interconnected by a marina walkway - Ocean Village's Leisure Island and the Exhibition Arena - giving the visitors a more comprehensive experience.

Meanwhile all of the dining and leisure facilities of award-winning Ocean Village marina will be throwing their doors open to the attendant public. The marina hosts some of the best bars, restaurants and shops found in Gibraltar. Ocean Village is within easy walking distance of the border with Spain and boasts over 800 car parking spaces.

If you want to benefit from exhibiting at one of Europe's most attractive locations for business and high net worth individuals contact the Boat Show Team.
