The South Coast Boat Show has been cleverly designed to appeal to buyers who wish to get afloat this season. The website’s bespoke appointment system ensures visitors get to see the brands they want, at the time they want. Whether that’s to thoroughly explore all the upgrades and innovations on their favourite models, or to start the process as a new buyer, the show offers a clear, direct and no-nonsense approach to the process.
“We’re delivering another fantastic year for buyers,” says Scott Farquharson, MDL’s Ocean Village Marina manager. “Yet again we’re bringing a wealth of global brands to Southampton and we will welcome visitors from across the UK. This is the only south coast show to focus on 20-60 foot boats and it has already gained a reputation as being a safe haven for buyers, away from the milling crowds.”
