BIOGRAD NA MORU - With less than 2 weeks to go, the 25th anniversary show again will will break all records with more exhibitors, vessesls and premieres than ever!

More than 50 new vessels have been added in water, and more than 30 on land, expanding the total to about 400 vessels up to 24 meters. A 5th Exhibition Hall E has been added the north marina, as well as floating exhibition stands on the pontoon bridge linking Marina Kornati North to Marina Kornati West.

From its humble beginnings as a springtime open house, the show has developed a loyal following to become Central Europe’s leading show, and one of the most important in Europe, serving the many nations that gravitate to the Croatian Adriatic. Unique to the world, each of the past 25 years has resulted in a record show except for 2020, when a near record show was one of only 3 shows held in Europe during the start of the pandemic.

The Biograd Boat Show experience!

The show’s success is the unique formula created by the Organizer Ilirija d.d. who combined their impressive Marina Kornati, Ilirija hotels, restaurants, and entertainment facilities into an attractive “Boat Show Experience” package. When the sun sets, the exhibiting stops and the party begins, with a legendary entertainment program that spills into the town center.  Combined with Biograd’s spectacular setting, the show is truly unique in the world.
