The Genoa Boat Show, which is being held from September 21 to 26, 2023, is an opportunity to admire the latest in the boating world. Among the many boats on display, most striking is the beauty of the yachts and sailboats.
A unique event, where we at byyacht could not miss it!
Over a thousand exhibitors and more than 1,300 boats on display from 2 to 40 meters in length, visitors from all over the world, and of course the big yachts and beautiful sailboats take the cover !
This year, however, the protagonist is also the very location of the Boat Show itself, around which the work does not stop, the construction site for the new Levante Waterfront redesigned by Renzo Piano for the redevelopment of the eastern seaside part of the city. The surprise then are the new navigable canals with 150 new berths and the latest industry innovations.
200,000 square meters of space, both on land and water, with 85 percent of the areas completely outdoors.
Let’s take a look at some of the most interesting new features.

Designed by Philippe Briand, the CNB 78 (24.85 meters in length by 6.10 in maximum beam) maintains a waterline length of less than 24 meters (22.20 feet), which facilitates navigation in coastal waters.
The interior of the CNB 78 with the aft area designated for crew and galley has a large square to the descent from the cockpit and offers four cabins: a master suite and two guest cabins with doubles (one can be converted to twin beds) and a twin cabin for the crew.
