Yachting Boating World: Ladies Day on 22 September 2016 promises champagne, fashion shows, live music and, of course, gorgeous yachts to explore at Southampton Boat Show’s marina.
Held on Thursday, 22 September 2016, Ladies Day guests will have the opportunity to marvel at some of the gorgeous yachts and spectacular feature boats on display.
There will also be plenty of opportunities to indulge in a glass of champagne at one of the waterfront vantage points that the show’s bars and lounges have to offer.
Live music performances from the likes of Might Be Bublé, as well as fashion shows make this day totally unmissable.
Fantastic spot prizes will also be handed out on the day by official media partner for the occasion, the Southern Daily Echo, for the show’s best dressed ladies.
The Honda Champagne Bar will welcome the show’s very own Ladies Hour from 2pm to 3pm, where every lady that buys a drink will have the chance to pick the winning key to open a padlock of prizes.
Managing director at British Marine Boat Shows, Murray Ellis, commented: “With the recent fantastic success of our female sailors in Rio, there is no better time for women at the show to take to the water and share in the fun, with our signature attractions such as Try-A-Boat, the Suzuki RIB Experience or the Global Challenge Sailing Experience.”
“As well as the more relaxing activities with our fashion shows and fabulous bars, the show provides a host of opportunities to get out on the water for free,” he adds.
Ladies Day is sponsored by Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth, one of the UK’s leading private wealth firms.
A partner in the company, Ursula Danagher, said: “Irwin Mitchell Private Wealth is proud to be sponsoring Ladies Day at the Southampton Boat Show. It is one of the most prestigious events on the south coast and highlights our commitment to the region.”
“We are already one of the biggest private client businesses in the UK and sponsoring the show highlights our plans to grow our business in the south of England,” she added.
The Southampton Boat Show runs from 16-25 September 2016.

Southampton Boat Show 2016 takes place from 16-25 September at Mayflower Park.
Yachting Boating World: With just over two weeks to go before the Southampton Boat Show 2016 kicks off, a site map of the show has been released.
Following unprecedented demand from exhibitors for undercover space, a new show layout has been revealed for 2016.
Ocean Hall and Windward Hall will be merged with an additional 550 square metres of space added to create a new look Ocean Hall for 2016.
Enhancements to the layout will also see Beneteau and Jeanneau move from their historical space on the land to a much bigger display on the marina.
Sunseeker International will showcase its 95 Yacht at this year’s Southampton Boat Show.
The 95 Yacht is as spacious and striking as its successful sister, the 28 Metre Yacht and it combines a superyacht feel with all the practical advantages of a yacht in this size category.
A standout feature is its unique main deck layout with a special master cabin triplex configuration for even greater flexibility and space from a class above. With the luxurious master stateroom berth on the main deck, a forward staircase leads to a mid-level dressing area and sumptuous en-suite.
The raised pilot house offers greater flexibility contributing to the more expansive main deck layout, remarkable for this size of yacht. Above deck, the spacious flybridge is well equipped with a second helm, bar, optional hot tub and plenty of seating for guests to be entertained in style. As with all Sunseeker’s new models in 2016, the 95 Yacht is based on the classic deep V hull with performance at its heart.
