The METS trade show is where all the new­est gear and gad­gets for 2019 are un­veiled. We scour the stands for the best in­no­va­tions

The METS Trade Show might not be well known to UK sailors, but for the marine in­dus­try it marks the start of the new year as they un­veil for the first time the very lat­est gad­gets and equip­ment they have been work­ing on be­hind closed doors.

Some­times they are up­dat­ing ex­ist­ing prod­ucts, but ev­ery so of­ten a to­tally new con­cept ap­pears, ready to take the sail­ing world by storm. The 12 halls of the Am­s­ter­dam RAI are a trea­sure trove of boaty bits, but as it’s not open to the pub­lic, we scouted the halls for our high­lights. It’s also where the DAME De­sign Awards are an­nounced – the in­dus­try’s pick of the year’s prod­ucts.
