DENTUR supports the boat shows within the country as a sectorial sponsor in general. DENTUR strongly believes that such a close cooperation with Boat Show organizers would develop the marine sector in general, especially the recreational boat industry. In order to achieve this aim, various exhibitions have been supported in past 13 years by DENTUR, for instance; Eurasia Boat Show held in Istanbul, Izmir and Antalya Boat Shows.

On the behalf of DENTUR, we would like to invite you to attend or visit Eurasia Boat Show to be held in CNR Expo Exhibition Center-Istanbul in February 2017. This exhibition will provide an excellent opportunity to establish new contacts and long term relationships and promote your brand in Turkey. And also you will be able to learn about Turkish Marine Sector and market development trends.



The Board of Directors of DENTUR is also working on the subject of injustice in the yearly dues collected from recreational boat owners, which results in a major discouragement for amateur seamen and the industry in the past years. A report about the subject comprising a suggested draft was presented to the officials, including the relevant ministry.

The work groups which were formed by the Association, prepared the following reports about the sector and presented them to the relevant state offices.


  • The problems arising from the introduction of CE certification and the requirement of this certificate for the recreational boats built in Turkey, with suggestions to facilitate this transition.
  • Ramps to launch small boats and shelf type storage systems for recreational boats.
  • Problems arising from the high and unjust yearly dues collected from recreational boats and suggestions for solutions.
