The Barcelona Salon Nautico is regarded as one of the top three boat shows in Europe in terms of both quality and attendance figures. Salon Nautico has the best setting in the Mediterranean, with many restaurants, a nautical atmosphere and an outstanding location close to the sea which make this a unique exhibition. The boat show also features the Excellence Fair, which is included in the boat show admission price. The Excellence Fair celebrates the glamour and luxury sector of cars, jewellery and works of art. Other boat show activities include the Boat Parade sea flotilla and more.
