Southampton Boat Show looks to the future

By | April 19, 2018

This year marks the 50th birthday of Southampton Boat Show and it is set to be the biggest celebration of all things marine. The Show will celebrate the lifestyle, fun and excitement that being on the water has to offer.

Much has changed in 50 years, but our love for the ocean remains unwavering. As protecting the marine environment becomes an increasing global concern, the Boat Show will be host to leading and well-known scientific and wildlife experts highlighting the environmental challenges facing the boating world in 2018. This will include on and off the water attractions from the National Oceanography Centre, the UK’s leading centre of excellence for oceanographic studies. Alongside British Marine’s pledge to cut onsite plastics at the Show, it will showcase the technical innovations set to ensure that the future of the marine industry and the environment remains bright.

Set against a stunning backdrop featuring some of the world’s most luxurious and innovative boats, Europe’s largest purpose-built marina will host thousands of guests and businesses over the action-packed 10 days.

Whether tempted to dip your toe in for the first time, an aspiring sailor or seasoned boater, the Show offers a fantastic social experience and the perfect opportunity to indulge a passion for the water. Regardless of age or experience, there will be plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved in. This includes an array of watersports and boating activities – from an indulgent cruise onboard a top-of-the-range luxury motor yacht to an exhilarating sail aboard a 72ft round the world Ocean Race Yacht as part of a 12 strong team.

Guests can relax at one of the Show’s many bars and enjoy live entertainment or simply soak up the last of the summer sun while climbing onboard some of the most idyllic boats in the world. Falling at the end of the summer, Southampton Boat Show promises to be the perfect way to conclude the season with plenty of opportunities to unwind.
