The fifth Barclays-sponsored Jersey Boat Show attracts huge crowds

The three-day Jersey Boat Show, which took
place this Bank Holiday Weekend, was a huge success attracting well over the
record 30,000 visitors it saw last year.

MBM was at the event to witness its
popularity and was impressed with its format, and the ethos of the show, which
aims to support the marine leisure industry on the island while providing an
important community event.

Although the weather could have been better
particularly on the opening day on Saturday, the sun broke through the clouds
on Sunday giving way to a glorious final two days.

For a comprehensive report from the show
including news from exhibitors and visitors, and why it is worth a visit next
year, watch out for a news feature in the June issue of Motor Boats Monthly.

MBM will also be at next weekend’s
Sandbanks Boat Show in Poole, and the Powerboat and Rib Show at Gunwharf Quays,
Portsmouth, so there’ll be news from there too.
