Dubai International Boat Show 2019 Review

Published 6th March 2019

The BGB team recently visited this year’s Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS), as the exhibition marked its 27th year of showcasing the latest state-of-the-art technology, engineering and luxury yachts.

As such a well-established show, DIBS continues to draw in a constant flow of professionals and fans visiting to catch a glimpse of superyacht launches, demonstrations and live shows. Amidst the action taking place, much conversation was centered around emerging trends surrounding yacht lighting.

With summer now on the horizon, thoughts turn to late night sailing trips and cruises on the water with friends – a picture that was widely demonstrated during this year’s DIBS, with countless yachts on the marina proudly displaying their lighting to fellow owners and distributors. Popular for its aesthetic appeal, buyers and visitors alike were in awe of the impressive light show taking centre stage each evening as the sun went down.

The sleek and stylish lighting on offer fast became one of the most talked-about features showcased on the fleet of boats sat in the marina, highlighting the value of the global underwater lighting market.

Not just for fans of the luxury yachting market, DIBS is frequented by fishing hobbyists looking for the latest nautical gadgets. Among the various boat accessories on offer, boating enthusiasts and professionals took interest in the value of lighting for fishing purposes. Noticing this gap in the market, our Submersible Induction Lighting System (SILS) was designed to not only cater to large superyachts, but also small fishing vehicles.

A regular barrier for many fishermen, or boat owners who enjoy a recreational fishing trip, is visibility at night. Underwater lighting however, is a permanent solution to their needs enabling these boat owners to fish into the night as well as making other fishing vehicles aware of their presence.
