What better way to enjoy the final weeks of warm weather than heading to the coast? This week is the Southampton Boat Show, where we have a marine spectacle.
Our top ten reasons why you cannot afford to miss the show: > It's on the water! The UK's largest purpose-built Show marina in the late summer sunshine. What more could you ask for? > Boats, boats and more boats.
There are 100s of boats and craft to see (new, old, and bargains), so you're spoilt for choice! > Things happen at the Show that don't happen anywhere else – boating celebrities, money-can't buy events and more. > You don't get to walk on a boat when you're online! There's nothing like the real thing. > Expand your horizons. Check out products and craft you wouldn't normally search for. Who knows where it will lead? > Meet and greet. Meet the exhibitors in person.
You get to ask questions, seek advice and find out about what's in the pipeline. > Sharing. The Show is a great place to meet like-minded people who share your passion! > Your local supplier. can't provide everything. The Show is a massive showcase of the country's latest and greatest products. > Give it a go! There are loads of opportunities to try out products, learn and get out on the water, including Try a Boat, Get Afloat, RYA Active Marina experience and try a dive. How to get there: Mayflower Park is situated on the Waterfront with excellent views across Southampton Water.
