With 2km of pontoons and a late summer schedule, Southampton is the UK show that draws the crowds

As part of MBM’s The Big Summer Preview, we bring you Southampton. Check back here regularly for updates on the show.

This year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show will take place from 13-22 September and in terms of scale and size it promises to be bigger than last year: currently 22,822sqm of space has been sold, which National Boat Shows say is more than when the show opened in 2012.

Over 582 exhibitors are confirmed to be at the 10-day show and MBM currently knows of 76 boat debuts taking place, including the surprise Princess 43 launch, and that of the Fairline Squadron 48. Expect more launches announced closer to show time.
