Returning in a revamped format is Nautilia, the now classic North Adriatic used boat show, now in its 33rd edition, scheduled for weekends Oct. 17/18/19 and 23/24/25, 2020.

In the statement we receive and publish all the news:

In Aprilia Marittima – Latisana (Udine), used boats have been at home for 33 years now. In fact, it is here that there will be the Salon entirely dedicated to the used boat.

There are still uncertainties about the future, but the goal of the organizers and exhibitors is to try all the way to make the event happen, including online.

Used boats, Nautilia also goes online

“From many quarters we are getting signals,” explain organizers Eugenio Toso and Stefano Rettondini, “if they are not yet those of an obvious recovery, they are certainly not those of surrender. Regardless of any restrictions that may come in the future Nautilia however will be there.” How? With a digital innovation that will be repeated in future editions.

This innovation is called a “virtual tour” and will allow for online business development through the website and social networks. Each broker, will be able, at no cost, to have a video of each boat entered in the fair placed on the “” website, and each boat will be accompanied by a comprehensive technical data sheet with any information about its condition and equipment on board.

As a result, the interested public will have opportunities to get up close and personal with the boats on display previewed online by taking virtual digital tours of their interiors and exteriors, with opportunities to zoom in on the images and analyze their details.

This effort was made possible by the level of cooperation with exhibitor dealers and event organizers.

Nautilia and fishing

Another important new feature of this Nautilia is scheduled for the 1st weekend of Saturday, October 17, the final day of the IBGE (International Big Game Events) Bluefin Tuna Drifting Championship, organized by the ASD Lignano Tuna Club, an association founded in 1993 that currently has more than 100 members. During the Kermesse, crews of more than 50 boats from all over Italy will compete to win the coveted Trophy.

The boats will be moored in the Capo Nord Marina in Aprilia Marittima ready for the challenge. On Sunday of the 2nd weekend, a “simulated tuna” competition will be held, organized with collaboration of the Aprilia Marittima Yachting Club, which will award prizes to the winning participants during a charity culinary evening, with tuna recipes prepared by Members

Particular relevance then assumes the Nautilia exhibition in the territorial sphere of Friuli Venezia Giulia, which wanted to bet before any other region in Italy, on boating as an element of progress of the entire tourism sector. The F .V.G. region has been able to invest in receptivity, acquiring with an offer of 23 marinas and 15,000 berths grouped in the “FVG Marinas” network an important role in nautical tourism in Italy.

Corollary to the Event will be stands of operators in the branch of technical nautical accessories.
