British Motor Yacht Show shines in the sun

The British Motor Yacht Show enjoys a successful second year

The British Motor Yacht Show 2014 enjoyed a second successful year as the sun shone over Swanwick Marina on the River Hamble.


Sunseeker, Princess and Fairline were out in force with various models on show from within their respective ranges.

One of the stars of the show was the Princess S72, which MBY tested in Miami earlier this year, making its UK debut. Princess also had the largest boat at the show in the 88.

Fairline’s Targa 48 also proved popular with those on the pontoons whilst the Sunseeker Portofino 40 in a Union Jack vinyl hull wrap caught the eye on the hard.

Christopher Head of Sunseeker London says: “We had a great weekend at the British Motor Yacht Show at the home of Sunseeker Southampton and enjoyed some great British sunshine.

“The show has really developed since last year and it is pleasing to see other luxury brands involved including Aston Martin, Porsche, Range Rover and McLaren.”

With momentum building behind the various local UK boat shows, it seems the “boutique” show is here to stay.
