The boutique-style Sanbanks Boat Show will run from 11-12 May

The Sandbanks Boat Show 2013 is going to run at Salterns Marina in Poole from 11-12 May.

The popular show, which is in its third year, is free to enter and will have over 80 new boats for the crowds to enjoy.

Ideally timed with the start of the season, organisers say it’s a great opportunity to look at everything from dinghies and jet-skis to large motorboats plus a wide range of other kit.

Confirmed exhibtiors include: Salterns Brokerage – distributors for Greenline, Cranchi, Sealegs and Goldfish – and Wessex Marine who represent Botnia Targa, XO and Marex. Plus Sunseeker, Princess, Sealine, Fairline, Windy, Hardy and Boston Whaler.

Russell Haydn of Salterns says: “This boutique-style boat show has been truly welcomed by the marine industry, main dealers, manufacturers, associated companies, the boating press and visitors alike.

It’s just what the visitors and trade were looking for as alternative to the larger shows like Southampton and London. We have progressed and improved each year and look to bring you an even better show for 2013.”

MBY editor Hugo Andreae says: “This is a great show, the fact that it’s free to enter for visitors and exhibitors only have to make a small contribution to the promotion fund means that it is a very relaxed atmosphere.

“Most manufacturers only have a couple of models on show so salesman have plenty of time to talk to punters – all in all it’s a great day out to peruse new boats and see what might take your fancy.”
