Green Tech Boat Show moves to Southampton

Green Tech Boat Show

The Green Tech Boat Show is moving to Southampton, organiser MDL Marinas has confirmed.

The first boat show dedicated to shining a spotlight on the marine industry’s green products and technologies, the Green Tech Boat Show will now play centre stage at the South Coast Boat Show (21-23 April 2023), hosted at MDL’s Ocean Village Marina in Southampton.

“We’ve taken the decision to make the Green Tech Boat Show a feature of our popular South Coast Boat Show, as boat purchase and sustainable boating are no longer a separate conversation with the boat buying public,” says Tim Mayer, sales and marketing director at MDL Marinas.

“By bringing the Green Tech Boat Show to Southampton, the epicentre of boat sales along the south coast, we’re able to give green marine technology and the companies producing it greater visibility.

“The South Coast Boat Show is for serious buyers, and these buyers will be considering sustainability in their purchase decisions – whether they’re buying now or in 18 months’ time. We’re just creating the ultimate boat buying platform, where an extensive range of cutting-edge technology supporting greener boating is showcased alongside the world’s leading boating brands.”

Eco-friendly and innovative products designed to make boating more sustainable will be showcased alongside global power and sail brands. 

Now in its third year, after two successful years at Queen Anne’s Battery in Plymouth, MDL’s Green Tech Boat Show will continue to help boat owners and prospective boat owners understand the greener options available to them.

Exhibitors confirmed so far for the 2023 Green Tech Boat Show include ePropulsion, Optima Electric Boats, Pixii Electric Boats, RS Electric Boats, Vulkan Industries, Vetus Ltd and Vita Yachts.

Mayer continues: “If you’re designing, manufacturing, distributing or launching an eco-friendly boating product or service, the Green Tech Boat Show is now, more than ever, the ideal platform to present them to a large, receptive and fully engaged audience. We’re hoping that this positive move to Southampton, with its central location and great connections, will enable more companies to show their innovative and environmentally sound solutions.”

As a feature of the South Coast Boat Show, the Green Tech Boat Show will have designated areas, both on the water and shoreside, for eco-focused exhibitors.

Companies interested in exhibiting at the Green Tech Boat Show in April should contact Tim Mayer via email.
