The world’s largest boat and water sports fair, boot Düsseldorf, will be returning for its 51st edition this January. Nearly 2,000 exhibitors are expected to participate, including manufacturers of yachts, boats, canoes, kayaks, kitesurfing, surfing, wakeboarding, windsurfing as well as engine, equipment and accessory makers and even beach resorts and charter companies. On 27th November, 2019, boot Düsseldorf marked its 50th anniversary. At the first edition, people of Düsseldorf were excited to have their own boat show. Little could they have imagined that the show with just 116 exhibitors would grow into the world’s biggest boating exhibition.

Among the exhibitors at boot Düsseldorf 2020 is Pershing, who will showcase its TØ Project range of high-performance sports yachts. Aiming to “redefine the boundaries of the 25 – 40 metre market segment,” it is a result of the collaboration of De Simoni, Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Pershing’s engineering department. It preserves the Pershing ‘family feel’, attempts a new stylistic paradigm, and promises high performance in both speed and safety.
