Southampton is back!

British Marine, organiser of the Southampton International Boat Show, has confirmed that the 52nd edition of the UK’s largest watersports festival will take place from  10 – 19 September, celebrating everything that is great about being out on the water.

Packed full of boats and equipment, the show will see the return of Europe’s largest purpose-built marina, which will feature a huge range of new sailing and powerboats alongside over 450 marine brands. More than 600 boats from around the world will be exhibiting, making it the event for serious boat buyers to attend.

Fun for the whole family, from paddleboarding to cruising out in the Solent, there will be a range of on-the-water experiences. For those who prefer to stay on dry land, there will be live demonstrations and talks, where special guest speakers will be sharing everything from the latest product innovations to adventures at sea.

Providing the idyllic place to soak up the atmosphere, listen to live music and socialise with friends and family again, on-site restaurants and bars will provide culinary delights to satisfy every taste.

Lesley Robinson, CEO of British Marine, said: “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!”
