This is an excellent opportunity for you to visit and see new developments in this fast-growing industry and carry out some market research, make initial contacts and follow them up later! 

Meet the likes of Princess, Fairline, Sunseeker and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) , explore the thousand-plus boats on display and enjoy everything about boating in one giant show!
