Get ready for Britain’s biggest festival of boating!
Join us for Southampton International Boat Show at Mayflower Park, Southampton from 10-19 September 2021.
Working in partnership with Southampton City Council, British Marine has confirm additional land has been agreed for use at this year’s show, making the show bigger than ever before. This larger space creates the opportunity for a new entrance to the show and festival area outside Southampton’s Westquay shopping centre.
Once inside the show, visitors will be immersed in the world of boating and watersports through new zones that cater for specific interests to give a tailored show experience. The first zone will be for paddle boards, kite surfers, kayaks and windsurfers, accompanied by a stage, street food, music and a lively vibe to showcase the watersports lifestyle and simplicity of getting afloat. There will be a Dinghy Zone geared towards the interest of dinghy sailors and high-performance sailing. This will flow into a Classic Boat & Day Boat Zone aimed at celebrating the boats and craftsmanship that stands the test of time. Moving into Mayflower Park and the massive marina, there will be hundreds of power and sail boats, equipment and services on show.
Mayflower Park itself will be bigger and better than ever, with the stunning backdrop of Europe’s largest purpose-built marina remaining a show centrepiece. There will be a wide range of exhilarating on-the-water experiences for everyone as the natural arena between pontoons and shore is utilised further to create a safe and constantly active water park with opportunities to demonstrate, compete, entertain and get more people out on the water, all with live commentary. This will also provide exhibitors with the opportunity to demonstrate how getting out on the water is for everyone and that access to water sports is easier than people may think – in craft of all shapes and sizes!
Throughout the show there will be new dedicated features, including stages, live music, entertainment and guest speakers to showcase the wonderful lifestyle that watersports and boating offers and create a buzzing show atmosphere.
As per the Government roadmap, it is planned for outdoor events to run in full format by September 2021. However, the health, safety and security of visitors remains the number one priority. Through engagement with the relevant Government department and Southampton City Council, British Marine will ensure that everyone can enjoy themselves in a safe and happy environment and incorporate any necessary COVID-19 safety measures that may be required at the time.
