About the Boat Show

Welcome to Dorset’s number one boat show! Salterns Brokerage and Salterns Marina, organisers and hosts, welcome you to the fourth annual Sandbanks Boat Show taking place on 10th & 11th May 2014.

Salterns Marina is the perfect setting to this two-day event bringing together a great selection of new boats and marine products for the boating enthusiast, which is suitable for all ages and is free of charge to visit.

Russell Hayden of Salterns said “This ’boutique’ style boat show has been truly welcomed by the marine industry; main dealers, associated companies, the boating press and visitors alike. When we organised the show back in 2011, we didn’t realise just how successful this event would become and has rapidly established itself as a fixed date on the boating calendar. It’s just what the visitor and trade were looking for as an alternative to the larger shows like Southampton and London. We have progressed and improved each year and look to bring you an even better show for this coming year”.

The Sandbanks Boat Show provides the perfect opportunity for boating enthusiasts to come and see an impressive and enviable selection of boats and products including marine electronics, engines and chandlery with professionals on hand to provide expert advice. The RNLI will be in attendance where they will be hosting a free lifejacket clinic. If you own a lifejacket then you are invited to bring it along to the clinic and have it checked free of charge for safety.

We’ve plenty to tempt your taste-buds, back by popular demand is Timmy’s Pies with his ‘bad boy’ pies, all boxed up and looking splendid.   South West Fisheries provide the most fabulous freshly prepared fish and shellfish, all washed down with some real ale, champagne or fine wine from our new friends Upham Brewery.  With some welcome live entertainment this will surely bring a smile to your face and help kick start the boating season.  

The setting is stunning and the atmosphere is friendly and we look forward to welcoming you to Salterns.
