February 3 - Michel Wirt, managing director of Global Boat Shipping (GBS), says that the Düsseldorf boat show was a success for the company, which is part of the EMS-Fehn-Group.

"We had considerably more visitors at our stand than last year. This was also reflected in the increased number of yacht transport orders," said Wirt.

Immediately after the show, GBS shipped a 43 ft yacht from the Düsseldorf show site to its new owner in Asia.
