Around about 250‘000 people visited the «boot» in Düsseldorf from 23rd – 31st of January 2016. The unique stand of «Esseboats» enjoyed high attention and attracted approximately 4‘500 fairgoers. Many new, interesting contacts could be made and several Esse were even sold on the spot. However, the greatest pleasure for Josef and Stefan Schuchter was to recognize the continuously ongoing enthusiasm about «Esseboats» amongst the sailing audience. The «boot» hence was a big power booster for «Esseboats» and a great start to the upcoming season. Many thanks to all visitors!
