On a 10,000msq land exhibit, MIBS 2012 will showcase a variety of day boats, speed boats, security boats, personal watercrafts (PWCs), kayaks, boating accessories, marine engines, marine toys and some of the finest, most luxurious yachts, large boats and sail boats.

Over the year, the show has enjoyed a steady patronage of 15,000 visitors including several HNIs, marine industry professionals and boating enthusiasts from around the world. This year, MIBS extends a complimentary invitation to all members of the Bombay Gymkhana, and the Royal Bombay Yacht Club (RBYC).
