Boat Shows 2016 Calendar

Boat Shows 2016

We enter the new year with our dreams and aspirations for the coming months in mind, one of which could be sailing off into the sunset leaving all the worries of the 9 to 5 routine behind. With that thought in mind, the Boat Shows 2016 schedule kicks off early with the London Boat Show starting on the 8th of January. Heading off to London to place a deposit on the dream yacht may not be in everybody's reach, but visiting to explore the world of boating certainly is. With hundreds of boats on display, new technologies and innovations promoted and entertainment events (let us not forget about the food and drink options), there is plenty for the family to see and do.

Boat Shows in Europe

If you cannot make London, alas we are unfortunately unable to this time, there are many more Boat Shows scheduled throughout Europe all through the year. This offers a great opportunity to seek out your Boating fix whilst enjoying a long weekend away in some of Europe's most beautiful cities and coastal regions.

The general format of the shows is similar with the leading players in the nautical industry taking centre stage to exhibit their latest marine craft, clothing and accessories, and engineering / technological developments. Relatively cheap to purchase a day pass, coupled with the in-show entertainment and hospitality, there is more than enough to keep you occupied, interested and wanting more from the boating world.

If you check out Legend Yacht NickyNoo on YouTube you will find video highlights from some of the 2015 Boat Shows.

As we progress through the year we will bring you news and updates from all the shows as best we can. If you have an opportunity to visit any of them, please get in touch and let us know how you got on?
