Yachting Boating World: Premier Marinas gets set for two shows in one as it hosts its annual Used Boat Show at Swanwick Marina running it alongside the Southampton Boat Show, between 16th – 25th September.
Now in its 37th year the Used Boat Show is set to feature extensive on and off water displays of power and sail boats from onsite brokerages, Ancasta International Boat Sales, Clipper Marine, Fleming Yachts, Princess Motor Yachts, Sea Ventures and Sunseeker Southampton.
Ancasta International Boat Sales’ line-up will include a used Princess V56 and Nimbus 43 Nova, an Oceanis 50 and Bavaria 42 Virtess Fly, plus an Aquastar 45, alongside over thirty other quality yachts.
Open daily from 10am – 6pm, visitors will also be able to take advantage of Premier’s Park and Ride service offer to Southampton Boat Show when booked in advance. Besides a complimentary ticket to the show the offer includes free parking at Swanwick Marina and a return coach journey to the Southampton show – all for the price of £13 per adult or £32 for a family ticket, which includes two adults and up to four children.
Nicola Walsh CMM, Marina Manager at Swanwick Marina said: “We’re delighted to host the Used Boat Show again this year to showcase our first class brokerages. Many visitors will coincide a visit to this show with a day out at Southampton Boat Show.”
So whether you’re thinking of selling or buying a used yacht or motor boat, this show is one of the most established and successful used boat shows on the South Coast.
To register your interest for a Park & Ride ticket call your local Premier Marina or visit www.premiermarinas.com for more details. Tickets will go on sale early August.
Motor Boats Monthly: Princess, Sunseeker and Fairline have joined forces to showcase a “best of British boat show
In a collaboration to promote national boat design and manufacturing at the start of the European boating season, Princess, Sunseeker and Fairline have joined forces to showcase a “best of British” on the Hamble this May. Billed as a boutique show for buyers, the second British Motor Yacht Show organised by Premier Marinas will be held at Swanwick marina on 16-18 May.
James Barke, managing director at Essex Boatyards, believes the union is “hugely significant. It makes perfect sense for Britain’s premier motoryacht distributors to form an alliance to promote British expertise – we are stronger if we work together,” he says.
Max Whale, marketing director at Princess Motor Yacht Sales, agrees the show is about promoting national talent: “First and foremost, this is really a ‘best of British’ motoryacht sales and promotion event.”
The three giants of British motorboating will be displaying their latest launches and more.
Fairline will spotlight its Squadron and Targa ranges – the 42, 48 and 65, and 48, 48GT T38 GT respectively will be moored in Swanwick marina.
Princess will promote its 52, 88, V39, V52, V57 and S72.
Sunseeker will show the Portofino 40, San Remo, Manhattan 55, Manhattan 63, 68 Sport Yacht and 80 Sport Yacht.
All boats will be open for inspection and Premier Marinas is to invite other big names of the British marine industry to exhibit; details will be released nearer the time on the show website.
Located just off the M27 in the river Hamble, the boat show will be open daily from 10am-4.30pm and be free to anyone interested in buying a yacht. Premier Marinas expects 1000 visitors over the three days.
