Best of British in the Hamble

In a collaboration to promote national boat design and manufacturing at the start of the European boating season, Princess, Sunseeker and Fairline have joined forces again to showcase a “best of British” boat show on the Hamble River this May. 

The second British Motor Yacht Show, organised by Premier Marinas, will be held at Swanwick Marina on 16-18 May.

James Barke, managing director at Fairline dealer Essex Boatyards, said: “It makes perfect sense for Britain’s premier motoryacht distributors to form an alliance to promote British expertise – we are stronger if we work together.”

Fairline will spotlight their Squadron and Targa ranges – the 42, 48 and 65, and 48, 48GT T38 GT respectively will be moored in Swanwick Marina – and Princess will promote their 52, 88, V39, V52, V57 and S72. Sunseeker will show the Portofino 40, San Remo, Manhattan 55, Manhattan 63, 68 Sport Yacht and 80 Sport Yacht. 

The show will feature stands by other marine brands. Details will be released nearer the time on the show website.

Located just off the M27 in the River Hamble, the boat show will be open daily from 10am-4.30pm and be free entry.
