The British Motor Yacht Show Next Month - By Appointment Only


With the Southampton Boat Show postponed until 2021, the British Motor Yacht Show is gathering momentum; with new entrants added to the line-up and a customer booking system to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for those attending.  

Set to be one of the few exclusive UK boat shows in 2020, it has been extended to nine days and will run over two weekends, from Saturday 1 August to Sunday 9 August, to give everyone the opportunity to view the boats they want to see – without the crowds that normally go hand in hand with such an event.

Entry to the show will be by appointment only and visitors will be required to pre-register to make arrangements to view a specific boat or boats in advance of their arrival. Safety and security protocols will ensure social distancing is maintained at all times and there will be hygiene stations for hand sanitising and PPE available.

A well matched collaboration showcasing top British brands, Fairline, Princess and Sunseeker, this year’s event at Premier’s Swanwick Marina will also welcome a number of high profile overseas brands including the debut of Premier’s Agapi Boat Club, Axopar, Azimut, Bavaria, Bayliner, Beneteau, Brabus, BRIG, Chris Craft, Greenline, Invictus, Jeanneau, Prestige, Sealine as well as Williams Jet Tenders and Highfield Ribs (UT Boat Club).

The latest entry to the show is Hunt Yachts, a brand that builds some of the best performing offshore cruising yachts in the world.

Now celebrating its seventh year, this boutique show remains free to enter but boat viewings will be limited to a maximum of four people – all from the same household.* With ample parking and an onsite Café, the show’s trademark relaxed atmosphere will still be apparent, despite safety measures in light of COVID-19.

For those who wish to make an appointment to visit the British Motor Yacht Show or who want further information on the exhibitor line up, details can be found at www.britishmotoryachtshow.com. For general enquiries, email BMYS@premiermarinas.com.  Following submission of contact details, visitors will be contacted by the relevant dealers to discuss the boats in more detail and to make appointments for private viewings.

*Please note that from 27th July to 9th August the Café parking and the tarmac parking, flanking the gravel car park (side and facing the pontoons) will be closed for the British Motor Yacht Show. The gravel car park will only be open for berth holders, who will also have access to separate entrance points from the east and west to get to the main bridgehead.
