Get the best from the PSP Southampton Boat Show with MBM's insiders' guide

The PSP Southampton boat Show is just a month away and while the boats and gear are always the main event there’s still time to slope off for a swift pint or a nice bite to eat.

We’ve compiled our favourite hotels, restaurants and pubs into our guide to the Southampton boat show so that you can avoid the tourist traps and Fawlty Towers during your stay, plus we’ve rounded up all the essential information on tickets and travel to help you on your way.

When all the nitty-gritty has been sorted why not check out our pick of the most exciting new boats on show at Southampton, including the Princess V52, Sunseeker M63 and the Windy 40.

For a full in-depth guide to all the boats at the show, make sure you pick up a copy of the September issue of MBM, on sale from 18 August 2010.
