The Poole Harbour Boat Show is returning in May and this year it will have the full support of local manufacturer Sunseeker International.

Bryan Jones, marketing manager for Sunseeker, said: “Sunseeker are extremely proud of their Dorset heritage so we are delighted to be associated with our local boat show.

“We look forward to delivering a live music stage to showcase amazing local bands, acts and performances in what promises to be an entertaining boat show for all the family.”

Other event sponsors include brokerage firm Bates Wharf, Coleman Insurance, PSP Logistics and luxury car dealership the Westover Group.

Also exhibiting are Offshore Powerboats, TBS Boats, Berthon, Boats.co.uk, Gibbs Boat Sales, Clipper Marine and Trusty Boat Sales.

The 2016 Poole Harbour Boat Show will run from May 20-22 and organisers hope to build on last year’s bumper attendance of 15,000 visitors.
