Something for the weekend

13th & 14th September

It’s the first weekend of the 10 day PSP Southampton Boat Show. On the water there are over 300 new boats on display, and on shore there are hundreds of marine companies showcasing the latest marine equipment. This year's attraction is the PSP Southampton Boat Show Eye, where you can take a ride 100 feet into the air for a panoramic view of the show and marina. A ride on the eye is £3.00 per person. Visitors can also Try a Boat for free but book first thing to avoid dissapointment. Disabled visitors have the opportunity to ride aboard Wet Wheels, a Cheetah Catamaran that has been specially adapted for disabled access. Visit stand A140 to book a space. The show runs until Sunday the 21st of September, and entry to the show is £20 for adults, with kids under 15 entering for free with a paying adult. For more information visit the website

We will be on stand B073A throughout the show so do pop along and say hello. Saturday is our first birthday!

Alongside the Boat Show, Ancasta are running two Used Boat Shows at their Lymington and Swanwick branches and have over 300 motorboats available. For more details and to see the boats available visit the website
