Preview day is over, and sore feet aside, it's been a pretty good one

It’s been a fairly hectic preview day at Southampton for the MBM team.

There’s been a bundle of new boat launches, pictures from some of which can be seen on our Flickr site.

We’ve also found time to film the stunning new Fjord 40, which, we’re sure you’ll agree, is a show stopper .

And Claire was unlucky not to come out on top of the journalist’s RIB challenge run by Honda and the RYA.

Oh, and some pretty promo girls kept getting in the way when we tried to take photos of boats!

Remember to keep checking our boat show blog , which will be continually updated throughout the show.
