All-Israel Yacht Show – 2012Всеизраильская выставка яхт 2012

Good news for yachtsmen! On 11 May, 2012 from 10 a.m. till 6 p.m. the unique event Herzlia Boat Show, an all-Israel water vehicles show, took place at Herzlia port.

The local department for tourist development in Herzlia and yacht club SEA-GAL organized the event. “Sea-Gal”.

The guests of the show enjoyed live music, delicious wine and Mediterranean cuisine.

The show presented dozens of types of yachts, twin-hull boats, water jets, cayaks, sailing, fishing and motor-boats. A second-hand yacht worth $600 000 turned out to be the most expensive vessel. A new yacht of such kind costs $1.2 mln.

In former times yachting was considered to be an elite kind of sport, a prerogative of rich people, but stereotypes change and now even a middle-class person can afford a second-hand yacht and thus make his dream come true!

All the parking space at Herzlia port is usually occupied by yachts as most ship owners keep them here because of the mild climate of Israel. This makes sailing possible in any season of the year. So it took the participants of the show some time to find places for their boats.
