Southampton Boat Show Returns


Are you prepared for the return of the biggest on-water boat show in Europe? From the 14th to 23rd September 2012, the annual PSP Southampton Boat Show is open to visitors of all ages.

There will be a huge number of luxury yachts, powerboats and RIBs on display from boat industry leaders such as Princess, Sunseeker and Discovery, as well as a variety of attractions including RYA day-courses, Suzuki RIB rides, boat parades, chef showcases and boat try-out sessions. This event appeals to many people, not just boating enthusiasts as some attend just to enjoy the hospitality, great food and exciting atmosphere.

New Boats Launched

The Southampton Boat Show is always a prime location for boat launches, and this year is no different. Making their debut at the show will be the Discovery 57 (the biggest resin-induced sailing yacht to be produced in Britain), the Oyster 725 and the Princess V62-s, amongst others.

The show will also play host to several prestigious feature boats. You’ll get the chance to see famous and historic ships including the Jolie Brise, the Trinity Sailing Foundation flagship Leader and the former Royal Barge, the Green Parrot.

Sailing celebrity Mike Golding will also be at the Show with the Gamesa yacht, which he will be sailing around the world in his bid to win the Vendée Globe.

Stock Up With Boating Equipment

You’ll also be able to pick up sailing equipment and memorabilia from the multitude of exhibitor trade stalls at the show. From boat engines, generators and spare parts, to sailing gadgets and technology, insurance and marina property, clothing and gifts, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for.
