Biggest Southampton International Boat Show ever

The 47th edition of the Southampton International Boat Show, held from 11th-20th September, will see the show’s marina full of global boat manufactures showcasing examples of yacht builds and design.

This year’s show will be one of many firsts; with over 100 boat debuts already confirmed and brand new attractions, visitors can expect a truly memorable day out.

As well as experiencing the usual ‘life on the water’, visitors will have the opportunity to get up close to life within the seas at the show’s very own Aquarium. Developed in association with the University of Southampton, there will be an array of tanks and rock pools, filled with creatures from the local waters and a darkroom, showcasing the fascinating world of corals and anemones.

Alongside the child friendly Get Afloat!, the Adventure River Canoe Ride will allow infants to climb aboard their own canoe and paddle down the feature’s winding river, supporting the shows new promise of being the most ‘on-the-water’ edition ever.

This year organisers have again partnered with Sunseeker Charters to take the show’s ‘Platinum Experience’ to the next level of luxury. This experience includes round-the-clock VIP hospitality in the customised Sunseeker Platinum Lounge and more importantly, a one-hour ride on board a Sunseeker Predator 56.

In addition, for the first time the Red Arrows will be performing their show-stopping aerobatic display on Saturday 12th September during the show.

Murray Ellis, managing director at British Marine Boat Shows’, commented, "This year's Southampton Boat Show further upholds its declaration as Europe's biggest boating festival by providing more free opportunities than ever before for visitors to get out on the water. Whether dinghy sailing, trying out a yacht, power boating or taking a ride on a RIB, we want to get all the family active and exploring the world of boating and water sports at the show."
