There is a new, central point of contact for all beginners in watersports in hall 14 of boot Düsseldorf: the "Starter World". In addition to lots of information on where, when and how you can succumb to the fascination of watersports, the motorboat simulator in particular attracts visitors to this new information area.
With virtual reality glasses in front of your eyes and a steering wheel and throttles in your hands, you can simulate your first ride up the river Rhine in the Starter World towards the Düsseldorf exhibition centre. You are guaranteed to stay dry during this boating pleasure, but you are on your way in full colour and 3D.
Expert advice at the stand
All newcomers on board will find valuable advice and information on all aspects of boating. Find out whether you are a sailor or rather a motorboat driver; what costs you have to reckon with when chartering or buying a boat; what possibilities there are to spend your leisure time and holidays with your family, alone or with friends on the water. "boot Düsseldorf is the ideal platform to get started in boating, as you can look at all the boats in the other halls and book trips or charter a yacht directly here at the show," enthuses organiser Lars Thierling.
All kinds of issues and questions newcomers to boating might have are also dealt with in the short expert lectures which are on the agenda of the stand's information stage all day long. From learning how to drive and boat licences to questions of equipment, safety on the water and insurance as well as how to trailer boats by car and the most beautiful watersports destinations near and far, which are suitable for beginners, many practical questions will be answered competently and entertainingly by the experts from the industry.
