The 2020 South Coast Boat Show, which takes place in Ocean Village Marina, Southampton will feature more than 50 new boats on display.

The event, which is going into its second year, will take place between the 15th - 17th May, 2020, to showcase the latest sail brands to potential buyers.

Organisers of the event are providing more berths for top-end berths and a land-based marine exhibition space, following the event selling-out this year and requests for a shoreside exhibition area.

Raymarine are a new sponsor for the event and their Head of Sales UK, Harry Heasman said:

“Given that we are a world leader in high performance marine electronics.

“We are very interested in being part of this show’s success story.

"The South Coast Boat Show offers a fantastic platform for our new product range.

“Last year we saw it attract consumers who were looking to invest in top quality products in the near future, so it makes sense for us to be there as a headline sponsor and to showcase our latest product range, including DockSense™, our assisted docking system.”

MDL's Ocean Village Marina Manager, where the event will take place said:

“The South Coast Boat Show will provide a magnificent showcase to global brands.

“We’re really pleased that our marina has been chosen once again to host the event.

“We’re expanding the show for 2020 as we’ve even more sail and power brands wanting to exhibit.

"They’ve obviously heard about the quality of the visitors to the show, and the benefits of business on our pontoons.

"Plus we’re really excited to be creating a shore side arena for additional related exhibitors, like insurance and finance.”
