Date: Add this to my calendar

Premier Marinas has announced it will host a number of boat shows and events at its South Coast marinas throughout the season including the exciting Spring Boat Shows in March, April and May 2018.

To celebrate the start of the season, Swanwick Marina will host two boat shows in one at Easter as it confirms it will host the annual Motorboat and RIB Show (31st March – 1st April) and running alongside a Pre-Season General Boat Show from 30th March to 2nd April.

The Motorboat & RIB Show will showcase all types of stackable boats up to 11m, including sports boats, RIBS and fishing boats and the four day Pre-Season Boat Show will include a fantastic line-up of bigger new and used motor boats and yachts presented by the marina's extensive onsite line up of top brand brokers.

These free-admission Spring boat shows will be followed by the Chichester Boat Show at Chichester Marina (21st-22nd April) and the British Motor Yacht Show at Swanwick Marina (18th-20th May), which brings together three of the biggest names in British motor yacht sales - Fairline, Princess and Sunseeker. This show will also feature a range of luxury cars including Porsche, Tesla, McLaren, Maserati and Bentley.

On 28th/29th April, Premier’s Brighton Marina will hold open days at East Lockside; these days will feature a line-up of boats and tenders for sale and a series of ‘mariners’ events including: life jacket checks, life raft demonstrations, a splicing class, rope displays, a Lewmar winch servicing demonstration and antifoul talks by International Paints.

Alongside these boat shows, other programme highlights include a wide range of RYA Active Marina events in collaboration with local partnerships, including a talk by Tom Cunliffe at Brighton Marina Yacht Club on 24th March and a safety weekend on 14th April at Eastbourne Marina.

Premier Marinas will also be hosting a number of workshops throughout the year at both Port Solent Marina and Chichester Marina. Click for further information about the individual events at the two South Coast marinas.
