British Motor Yacht Show to display 15 new boats

British Motor Yacht Show to have at least 15 new boats on display from Sunseeker, Princess and Fairline

More information has been released about the inaugural British Motor Yacht Show, which will run from 17-19 May at Swanwick Marina on the River Hamble.

It has been confirmed that there will be at least five boats from each of the three biggest British boat brands – Fairline, Sunseeker and Princess – on display.

This is the first time the dealers behind the UK’s biggest yards have come together like this to jointly host an event proudly displaying the cream of British boatbuilding.

The show’s organisers, Princess Motor Yacht Sales, Fairline Southampton and Sunseeker Southampton, are expecting up to 1,000 visitors over the weekend, but with free entry that figure could end up being far higher.

There will also be displays from “handpicked” industry leaders such as MTU, Caterpillar, Volvo Penta and Garmin.

Trevor Betts, general manager at Fairline Southampton, said: “It makes perfect sense for Britain’s premier motor yacht distributors to form an alliance to promote British expertise.

“In the general context, we are stronger if we work together. Symbolically, this show is hugely significant.”

It’s not known at present precisely which boats will be on display but check the show’s website (to go live in April) for more information as it arises.
