There was much disappointment in the cancellation of last year’s show, which pulled at the eleventh hour, for both exhibitors – including several from the Island – and the general public, who were hoping to visit a show following lockdowns.
The costs involved to companies as a result of the show’s cancellation did not help the situation and already struggling small boat yards and other marine industries were placed in difficult financial situations.
This year’s event will take place from the 10th – 19th September 2021.
British Marine, the organiser of the Southampton International Boat Show, is delighted to confirm that the 52nd edition of the UK’s largest watersports festival is planned to take place to celebrate everything that is great about being out on the water.
Packed full of boats and equipment, this edition of the show will see the return of Europe’s largest purpose-built marina, which will feature an unparalleled range of new sailing and power boats alongside over 450 marine brands on show. More than 600 boats from around the World will be exhibiting at the show, making it the event for serious boat buyers to attend.
Lesley Robinson, CEO of British Marine, says:
“It is a great pleasure to announce that Southampton International Boat Show is back in 2021, the show is such a key event in the boating calendar and a real celebration to the end of season. British Marine is using our years of boat show experience to deliver the 52nd edition at full size and to welcome visitors back in style. We cannot wait to see you all in person again!”
