Big names confirmed for inaugural Poole Harbour Boat Show

The fledgling Poole Harbour Boat Show is shaping up nicely, with Sunseeker, Fairline, Windy and Sealine all confirmed to exhibit

Major boat manufacturers Sunseeker, Fairline, Windy and Sealine will all be exhibiting at the Poole Harbour Boat Show over the weekend of 9-10 May.

The free event at Poole Quay Boat Haven is being launched this year and will also play host to the likes of Stingher RIBs, Bayliner, Quicksilver and Cobalt.

As well as new boat manufacturers, the show will also feature local chandlers, insurance firms and the RNLI.

Meanwhile, local yacht clubs will provide on-the-water activities to spark visitors’ interest in all things nautical.

Another key attraction at the Poole Harbour Boat Show will be tall ships TS Pelican and Stavros S Niarchos, which will both be opened up to the public for a few hours at a time.
