Barcelona Boat Show and the one year countdown to the America’s Cup 2024
We take to the water for this newsletter, focusing on two events: the Barcelona Boat Show and the one year countdown to the America’s Cup 2024. Barcelona’s location on the Mediterranean Sea is vital part of its history, a former fishing town with a sea-faring tradition transformed into a world-class city with a thriving international port.
Antares is proud to be part of Barcelona’s modern transformation, its location in Poblenou part of the city’s latest expansion. This is undoubtedly the city’s most international neighbourhood, popular with professionals for its location on the seafront at the epicentre of Barcelona’s creative, innovative and tech industries. Do come and visit and let us introduce you to Antares, an exciting addition to city life.

Barcelona Boat Show 2023
Barcelona’s 61st annual international boat show, the Salón Náutico, takes over Port Vell from 11th to 15th October with 279 exhibitors and 700 boats, a colourful display of yachts, luxury cruisers, catamarans and inflatables in the heart of the city. Visitors can discover the latest innovations in the nautical industry, visit the innovation hub for start-ups and this year, experience being aboard an AC75 class monohull, one of the America’s Cup yachts, in a virtual simulator.
America’s Cup 2024
This year’s boat show carries extra vibrancy, coming just twelve months before Barcelona hosts the 37th America’s Cup, the world’s most prestigious sailing competition. The America’s Cup Experience, next to the teams’ bases in Port Vell and already open, brings the event vividly to life while the preliminary regatta sees racing start on the final day of the boat show, with all five challenger teams in action.
