On the 24th of January 2018 co-founder and CEO Adrian Walker and me took-off towards the 2018 Boot Düsseldorf Boat Show. The plan was simple, stay at the show for two days and raise as much awareness as we could about Boataffair. To do so, we wanted to talk to quality boat owners and charter companies, marinas, potential renters and any other stakeholder that share Boataffair’s values.

At Boataffair we love to discover and share with you authentic, little known places and experiences for you to explore and enjoy.

Continuing with our country profile series we turn towards the rugged and rural Galician coast of Northern Spain and explore places of interest, delicious delicacies and all you need to know about renting a boat in Vigo. Not many people immediately think of Northern Spain as a holiday or boating destination, but what you find there is quite amazing, unusual and exciting. Definitely beats the traditional holiday destinations overpopulated with tourists!

As Boataffair’s founders have both spent a long time living in London, this city and its little hidden gems such as Lalage Beaumont’s boutique are very close to their hearts.
