In the wake of the ongoing COVID situation around the world, industry leaders YANMAR Marine International (YMI) will this week be showcasing their latest engines and technology to an expected audience of 30,000 visitors on two stands (B11 and B22) at the new Virtual Nautic, an online version of the Paris Boat Show.
Described as Europe’s largest virtual boat show, the interactive Virtual Nautic on 12th and 13th March is free of charge for visitors, bringing together over 1000 professionals from the global boating industry and featuring 150 booths.
YMI joins with the strengthened YANMAR France regional office to exhibit a range of products in Hall 4, with separate dedicated stands catering specifically for visitors interested in either powerboats or sailboats. Displaying its complete line-up of common rail marine diesel engines spanning a range of 10hp to 640 hp, YANMAR will also use the platform to introduce the new 6LF marine diesel engines, which have just started shipping to customers, and the next-generation YANMAR VC20 Vessel Control System.
Sander Gesink, Marketing Manager, YANMAR Marine International, said: “Virtual Nautic is a major opportunity for YANMAR to connect with the boating community and introduce visitors to our full range of engines and solutions. With an innovative and interactive environment to recreate a ‘real’ show, we are particularly looking forward to the experience and the opportunity to chat with people about the features and benefits of our products as anticipation builds for the new boating season. We would like to invite everyone to register now and schedule an appointment with us.“
The fullest range available on the market today, YANMAR’s new-generation engines suit a wide variety of vessels from sailboats, multihulls, superyacht tenders and motorboats to fast sports craft and wake boats. The engines feature the renowned YANMAR reliability and durability, plus exceptional acceleration, fuel efficiency, quiet and virtually smoke and odor-free operation, low vibration and smooth-running performance.
