The show features everything the leisure marine industry has to offer. Ranging from paddleboards to superyachts, and all the products and services you need to enjoy life in, on or around the water – you’ll find it at the show.
There are new features and more space – making the show bigger and better than ever before. Show favourites, new exhibitors and exciting attractions make sure there’s a lot to see and do: From kayaks to catamarans, SUPs to superyachts, there’s a boat for everyone. Find yours and more at this year’s show.
As usual, the Rockley Team will be taking charge of the Get Afloat on-water activities. Try something new, test exhibitor products and simply have some fun when you get yourself out on the water for FREE at Southampton International Boat Show.
Get Afloat is located in our On the Water Zone and is your go-to for a try at dinghy sailing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. Our experienced instructors will be on hand to make sure everything is perfectly safe, to give first-timers a hand or to sharpen up existing watersports skills for more experienced visitors.
Anyone aged eight and upward can try out the following in a 1-hour session on the water. Rockley Watersports will provide all equipment including wetsuit, buoyancy aid and instruction.
- Paddle boards (SUPs)
- Wide choice of dinghies
Just bring a towel and lots of enthusiasm!
For the safety of our visitors, Try-a-Boat and Get Afloat require pre-booking while you’re at the show. The booking area is super easy to find between the Watersports and Dinghy Zones.
And don't forget, up to 2 kids go free with every adult ticket!
