Since the realisation of Jachthaven De Rotterdamsche Admiraliteit in 2014, harbour master André Eleveld has allowed this location to grow into a marina with 100 permanent berths and 25 places for passers-by. This April the marina is transformed into an exclusive location. The most prestigious yachts are presented during the first Rotterdam Boat Show.
This bustling spot, directly connected with the Maas-river, lends itself extremely well to a luxurious maritime event, aimed at the higher segment. Together with Aad Timmerman, André Eleveld took on the organisation of this unique event, because it fits so well with Rotterdam and the port of Rotterdam. Aad Timmerman explains: “Rotterdam as one of the biggest port cities in the world is missing a luxury Boat Show.”
During the first edition of the Rotterdam Boat Show Rapsody Yachts, Princess, Zeelander, Mulder and Rotterdam-based Salut Boats show their newest boats, sloops, and luxury yachts. Besides viewing, it is also possible to test a number of tenders in the Oude Haven or on the Maas. The location can accommodate 500 people per day.
The visitors will also enjoy gastronomic catering. Provided by exclusive caterer Vanderloo on the Kooren Terminal. The terminal is a floating pontoon of 80 meters long. There will be a Champagne bar, a walking dinner and snacks and drinks are served on the terraces.
