Southampton Boat Show to feature Red Arrows flypast

Motorboat & Yachting: This year’s Southampton Boat Show is starting to shape up, with organisers confirming that the Red Arrows will be making a special appearance.

 

First details are starting to emerge about the 2015 Southampton Boat Show (from the 11-20 September), as the organisers have secured a major coup by lining up a Red Arrows flypast for the first time.

The famous Royal Air Force stunt team will be performing their aerobatics above Mayflower Marina from 15:40 to 16:00 on Saturday July 12.

Apart from the Red Arrows display, other key attractions include the 100ft Ferris wheel, which is returning for the second year in a row to offer visitors panoramic views of the show.

Meanwhile, the historic tall ship Earl of Pembroke will be open for visitors to climb aboard throughout the ten-day event.

Visitors will also be able to try out boating through various initiatives. Get Afloat will provide dinghy sailing and stand-up paddleboarding taster sessions for 8-16 year-olds, while Wet Wheels will be offering catamaran rides for wheelchair users.

The show, which is now in its 47th year, features a purpose-built marina to house the hundreds of models that are displayed on the water.

In terms of new models, big-name debuts from the likes of Fairline Boats, Sunseeker and Princess Yachts are expected, and a number of high-profile announcements are due in the coming weeks.

Advance tickets to the 2015 Southampton Boat Show are on sale now, priced at £15 per adult. Two children aged under 15 can go for free with each paying adult.
