Germany's largest in-water boat show


More action, more programme, more maritime atmosphere – visit Germany's largest in-water boat show. There are more than 140 sailing yachts and power boats waiting for you at the 5 star ancora Marina in Neustadt/Holstein on the first weekend in June. Plus the opportunity to try out and maybe buy maritime equipment and accessories, or just to get all the information.

Join in the enthusiasm generated by so many hands-on activities and information events – perfectly tailored for active watersports enthusiasts, newcomers and youngsters. The HAMBURG ancora YACHTFESTIVAL gets under way, under the capable leadership of Hamburg Messe.

Warning about dubious address brokers

At present, dubious companies are trying to sell visitor lists to our exhibitors. In the mostly English-language e-mails, exhibitors are offered visitor lists of the trade fair on which they will be exhibiting. Directories with company names, contact persons and complete contact details are promised. Exhibitors should ignore the emails and qualify these dubious offers as spam.

Our official partner for catalog and media entries as well as digital marketing is Sutter Fair Business. All official service partners of the HMC can be found here.
