South Wales Boat Show on this weekend

The event will run from Friday to Sunday at Margam Park near Port Talbot

The second South Wales Boat Show is on this weekend, and organisers are expecting up to 20,000 people through the gate.

More than 160 exhibitors will be at the Port Talbot show, displaying over 300 craft, from Sealine’s new SC29 to a selection a sportsboats from Canadian manufacturer Grew that have never before been seen in the UK.

Organiser Ben Sutcliffe said: “We are very proud that so many companies are launching new products here in Wales and are very pleased to see all our exhibitors back from last year, along with many more.”

Apart from boats, entertainment including paint balling, bouncy castles, go carting and hovercraft rides will be available. There’s even a free ‘come and try lake’ so boaters can put prospective purchases to the test.

The weather for Friday, the first day of the show, is looking patchy, but the rest of the weekend should be fine with temperatures hovering around 20°.
