With almost 250,000 visitors, boot Düsseldorf is the world’s largest boat and water sports fair and every year in January it is the “meeting point” for the entire industry. Around 2,000 exhibitors show their interesting innovations, attractive further developments and maritime equipment – spread over 220,000 square meters in 17 exhibition halls. There are also two round birthdays to celebrate. First, boot was just 50 years old. And secondly, a device known to many Düsseldorfers celebrates its birthday. The “Big Willi” ship crane has been lifting boats and yachts from the floods of the Rhine for 40 years in December and January and places them carefully on a low-loader that transports the valuable freight into the exhibition halls. Boats up to 100 tons can be lifted out of the floods of the Rhine by the huge orange crane, which only weighs a slim 84 tons.
