So this weekend (in case you hadn’t noticed!) it’s the start of the PSP Southampton Boat Show, from 13th to 22nd September.

It is at one of Europe's largest purpose built marinas and you can view featured boats, try boats, and refresh your skills with an on water workshop from RYA Active Marina. Don’t miss the Battle of the Classes Pursuit Race and the Honda RYA Youth RIB Championship.

There are 1000’s of boats of all shapes and sizes on display so if you’re thinking of buying a boat you can get a feel for which type might suit you best. There are plenty of experiences and activities to get you out on the water while you are there. Other opportunities include the chance to watch and learn traditional wooden boatbuilding techniques or try scuba diving for free with Andark Diving.

Boatshed will be at stand DO63, in Windward Hall showcasing over 2000 second hand boats, and representing our 50 locations worldwide. If you’re thinking of selling your boat remember that our websites will display up to 80 photographs and videos of each boat. Come along for a chat or some friendly advice and discuss hassle-free brokerage for your boat.

Suzzanne McDonald from Boatshed Kent is organising our presence at the show this year. Before you go along to meet her and the team makes sure you check out our full company profile on the official website and visit the Boatshed Kent Website for details of how to get £8 off your ticket price.
