In its 47th year the Southampton Boat Show returns to Mayflower Park, Southampton and will showcase the very best that the international marine industry has to offer including one of Europe’s biggest purpose-built marinas.
With a host of fantastic attractions as well as thousands of boats, brands and equipment to see and try first-hand, there will be something for everyone.
The annual event that attracts visitors from all over the country and Europe has a host of family-friendly attractions including on-water activities such as:
• On the Water’s Get Afloat - is a tailor made attraction for younger visitors which gives 8-16 year olds a chance to discover the excitement of dinghy sailing and Stand up Paddleboarding (SUP);
• Try-a-Boat - sessions will allow visitors to experience the thrill of being out on the water on a varied selection of vessels;
• Wet Wheels - is a fully wheelchair accessible, 9m Cheetah Catamaran. Capable of driving at 40 knots, it has been specially adapted to allow disabled access;
• RYA Active Marina Experience - will once again be offering visitors the opportunity to refresh their boating skills and gain top tips from expert instructors through their on-water and shore-based workshops.
You can also enjoy lunch by the water, get onboard the spectacular Earl of Pembroke tall ship, see the famous Red Arrows (who will be swooping across Southampton on Saturday 12 September) and view the entire show from the heights of the Honda Boat Show Eye!
