Bright sun over the Hamburg ancora yacht festival

Three days at the sea, and the water enthusiast knows again what really counts: the 5-star ancora Marina in Neustadt/Holstein presented itself for the Hamburg ancora Yachtfestival at its best last weekend, attracting 15,572 visitors to the exhibition grounds from Friday, 12th to Sunday, 14th May. Over the three sunny days the excitement for this year’s water sports season rose amongst the public and exhibitors alike. Dealers and yacht representatives were delighted with the highly interested visitors exploring the yachts, many qualified questions were answered by exhibitors in the pagodas tents and the lectures on the two stages were just as busy as the fun sports trials offered on the beach.

HAMBURG ancora YACHTFESTIVAL - Boat Show of E-Motions

Great experiences, great feelings, great variety! Water sports open the door to a comprehensive experience of nature: nowhere is the confrontation with the elements more immediate, the beauty of the coasts and the colors of the sea more visible, and the forces of wind and waves more tangible than at sea. On a yacht, new horizons open up and yet the focus is on the essential: the moment! The start of the 2023 water sports season again awakens all these emotions, and the Hamburg ancora Yacht Festival invites you to experience the variety of pleasures at the ancora Marina in Neustadt/Holstein from May 12 to 14. Here, the possibilities of vacation and leisure can be experienced directly at and on the water - whether in a small boat or on a luxurious yacht, under sail or under motor.
