IFP Group (International Fairs and Promotions) hosted a press conference today

President of Sea Pros sarl, Mr. Mounir Douaidy, General Manager of Solidere, and Mr. Mohammad
Chehab, CEO of Chehab Marine ltd., in the presence of partners, sponsors and media representatives.
“Since its inception, Beirut Boat has been an added value to Lebanon’s tourism sector given that marine
leisure is one of the cornerstones of the tourism industry, and a major source of tourism receipts.
Lebanese beaches attract large numbers of boating and maritime enthusiasts, particularly those from
Arab countries that spend their seasonal or annual holidays in Lebanese marinas”, commented Mr. Aoun.
The West Yacht Harbor in Beirut receives around 216 yachts and boats of all sizes. The completion of the
project of the Eastern Marina on the waterfront is in line with the master plan, which will be completed
by the end of 2020 to accommodate more than 135 yachts of 16 to 30 meters and will have a positive
impact on both tourism and economic sectors in Beirut.
Beirut Boat is Lebanon’s most luxurious event that captures the essence of high living from every angle.
This year, with the support of the Lebanese Boat Dealers Association, the show is bringing forward cutting-­?
edge boats, yachts and super yachts of world-­?renowned brands. Beirut Boat will also showcase the finest
of luxury cars, watches, accessories, and other high-­?end products, not to mention water sports gear and
equipment that complement the marine lifestyle.
Beirut Boat’s visitors will be treated to a unique and engaging experience that includes a rich
entertainment program featuring live music, performances, and an exceptional flyboarding show. Visitors
can enjoy mingling at the lounges, and explore boats, yachts and various products on display at both Le
Yacht Club area and the Pier area that will be connected by a floating bridge to ensure easy and smooth
access. The show is expected to attract thousands of maritime enthusiasts, elite society figures, lifestyle
gurus, VIPs, and high-­?earning individuals.
