Industry Relevance 

Hamburg ancora YACHTFESTIVAL is a leading annual yacht show held at the Ancora Marina in Neustadt in Holstein, Germany. Since its debut in 2010, the event has become an important meeting place for yachting enthusiasts and those looking to gain a comprehensive overview of the market. It traditionally opens the entire yachting season and is the first place where many buyers will be able to see new yacht and boat models. 

Over 200 yachts will be presented in the water, allowing for a comprehensive experience. Not to forget that there will be around 90 pagodas and 1500 square metres of exhibition space available for exhibitors to showcase their latest accessories, equipment, tools and clothing. 

The Ancora Marina is the perfect host for the event and sets the tone for the entire festival. You’re able to experience this exclusive and modern 5* marina with over 1,400 berths, a luxury hotel, and private beach in its entirety. The location in the middle of the water sports area of Lübeck Bay in Schleswig-Holstein – another reason that makes Hamburg ancora YACHTFESTIVAL the place to be. As an exhibitor, you benefit from the fact that the metropolitan region of Hamburg has over 60,000 water sports enthusiasts spread across multiple clubs. They have vast purchasing power.

The festival offers an exciting entertainment programme running under its new motto “More Yacht, More Life”. Alongside the in-water boat show, there will be boat-related events, including workshops, demonstrations, competitions and live music performances. There will also be three dedicated stages for lectures by circumnavigators, visual presentations, and detailed reports on regatta sailing.

One of the festival's key advantages is its overall affordability. Yachts can reach the event on their own keel, and you don’t even have to think about logistics thanks to the large logistics and service package on-site. This makes the festival attractive to interested parties, who retain control and have the possibility to design slots themselves.

It's the perfect place for water sports enthusiasts, families, couples, and singles to come together and experience great food, fun activities and water sports demonstrations. 

One of the main attractions is the festival's very own beach, where visitors can test out stand-up paddleboards and e-boards or simply relax in a lounge chair and soak up the sun while taking in the stunning sea views. We need to highlight that the Ancora Marina has one of the best beaches on the entire shoreline, which makes attendance truly unforgettable. Completing the atmosphere is excellent live music you can enjoy while sipping on a glass of wine and eating delicious culinary delights.
