Woolverstone Marina will play host to the first annual East Anglian Boat Show this month (21-22 June).

The event will see the likes of Broom Boats, Elling Yachts, Barracuda, and Viking Mouldings exhibiting, as well as a number of smaller boatbuilders.

Organiser Trevor Barnes has high hopes, as he told MBM: “This is the first of what we hope will be the third-biggest boat show in the UK.”

Open from 10am to 5pm on both days, the free event will also feature a range of new and used boats from Norfolk Yacht Agency, ranging from 20ft to 45ft.

Practical demonstrations from the RNLI will cover sea safety, lifejacket checks, and boat maintenance.

Other attractions include a bouncy castle and a dog agility show, while refreshments will be served by the marina’s onsite bar and restaurant, Buttermans.

Woolverstone is part of the MDL Marinas network, with a total of 345 berths on the banks of the River Orwell.
