Open Yard weekend, 21-25 August - Pre-book now!

Even in the very different year 2020, Open Yard will be arranged. 2020 is the 27th year in a row for the Open Yard boat show in Ellös Orust. All boat manufacturers and boat dealers exhibitors are invited to show boats during this weekend. We show both new and used boats from a lot of different brands. This is Scandinavia's largest sail boat show.

Open Yard has a concept which makes it possible to arrange the sailboat show with boats in the water and the production of the yachts, as well as yacht equipment, even 2020.

We are extending our open days in the water to 21-25 of August 2020, and 21-23 August for yacht production. All within the framework for public health.

For obvious reasons, in regards to the world wide situation for covid-19, it does not come fully out like a normal year. Open Yard can only be visited after pre-booking through www.oppetvarv.com. Visitors will be offered to book a limited time so there are no more than 50 visitors at the same time on our docks and harbour. Thanks to a rolling schedule as much as over 1 000 interested people can visit Open Yard, spread over five days.
