From 5 to 13 June all the roads lead to one destination: Vilamoura, Algarve. Vilamoura Marina will hold, once again, Vilamoura Marina International Boat Show, an event that has taken place there since 1999.

This event will gather all types of boats, new and used, in its natural environment, the water, and on land, as well as agents of accessories, equipment and services brands. This type of exhibition allows the visitor to directly experience the equipment, in a realistic and comfortable way, with a personalised costumer service.

In 2021, the Vilamoura Marina International Boat Show will have a segment dedicated specially to lifestyle – Mercado da Vila – with an area with brands of fashion, décor, and design.

Vilamoura Marina is the biggest and most important marina in Portugal, with 825 moorings, and so becomes a privileged location to hold such an event. Also, the Marina has received, throughout the years, several international awards and has its spot saved on the recreational boating sector, both nationally and internationally.

This is event held by Vilamoura Marina with AIP Foundation (FIL – Lisbon International Fair).

Vilamoura Boat Show Golf Trophy is a highlight at Vilamoura Marina International Boat Show

The tournament takes place Saturday, 5 June, at Dom Pedro Old Course

Besides the nautical exhibition, both at sea and on land, with all the major nautical brands already confirmed, VBS has a lot of side events, in which we highlight, at the first day of the event, the Vilamoura Boat Show Golf Trophy, at Dom Pedro Old Course, official hotel of VBS.

The tournament, Stableford, held between 8h00 and 10h00, will have about 80 players, who should register at


1º/2º3º NET – 1º Gross – and Special Prizes Longest Drive (male and female) and Nearest to the Pin. Included in this tournament is the access to the driving range, green fee, Buggy & court bar.

Also, in this tournament, there will be the Golf Clinic, directed to those who are learning or want to improve their game, ending with a Putt competition.

This idea, as referred by Dom Pedro Vilamoura Hotel, was because nautical and golf “go along together”, in the Algarve: “The VBS is an event that has gained notoriety along the years and is promoting Vilamoura near sophisticated segments with characteristics that “marry” with golf. So, this idea is connecting two products on which Vilamoura is number 1 in Portugal and in Europe: nautical and golf.”

Something that is confirmed by the organisation: “VBS is, to us, an opportunity to increase Algarve tourism, contributing to the economical and touristic development in this region. Nautical and golf are, in our view, complementary, so we consider that this side event, Vilamoura Boat Show Golf Trophy, is good for the event and adds content to VBS.”

The organisation of VBS and Dom Pedro Vilamoura Hotel consider that VBS and its side events are a way to contribute to Algarve’s economy, preferably in times of the year that are not considered high season, such as June. Adds Dom Pedro Vilamoura Hotel: “Events such as VBS and the Golf Tournament will create more notoriety for the Algarve and a motivation for people to choose the Algarve for a vacation.”
