From March 3-6, 2022, Crocus Expo hosted the Moscow Boat Show International Exhibition of Boats and Yachts.
The project launched the yacht season for the 15th time, bringing together industry experts and professionals, yachting fans, fans of water-motor vehicles and media representatives.

The spring exhibition is an ideal start to the yachting season: exhibitors get the opportunity to present their products profitably and assess their demand in the market, identify promising sales channels and find new customers, conduct a lot of direct negotiations and conclude profitable contracts in a short time.
Yachts and boats, components, equipment and other integral components of the world of water-motor technology – all this could be seen at the "Moscow Boat Show 2022".
