Feedback from the 2014 Sandbanks Boat Show

    • “Praise to Nick and his team for the effort and time they put in, whilst the weather was testing it all went very well, so well done to all”.  RNLI
    • “Dbeere Yachts were delighted with the turn out for the show despite the high winds and the predictions of poor weather.  We had a great weekend meeting both new and current clients alike aboard the Sunseeker Yacht 82 and the Sunseeker Superhawk 43.  As a direct result of the Show we already have our first sea trial arranged.  Having sold a pre-owned Princess V48 as a result of the 2013 Sandbanks Boat Show we hope for a similar success this year.  Thanks to the whole team for organising a very good boat show.  Well done.”  Dbeere Yachts
    • “Thank you, it was an exceptional, but blowy weekend, which we thoroughly enjoyed.  Our main aim was more about profile raising rather than sales but delighted to say that we still managed to get quite a few pieces of work out of it anyway! We’re looking forward to next years Boat Show already!” Coles Miller
    • “We thought the show was great.  We had a lot of serious interest in the Gocycle.  We hope to be a part of the show next year.” Kairos eMotion
    • “We had a very successful show despite the weather!” Porsche
    • “This was my first trip to the Sandbanks Boat Show.  Having exhibited at the major boat shows I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and knowledge of the visitors.  Our Torqeedo electric outboard motors were well received and I look forward to coming back next year.” Torqeedo

Feedback from the 2011 Sandbanks Boat Show

    • “A great show and looking forward to next year already. We sold 2 boats and talked to many new customers about their future requirements. Ancasta will definitely be back in 2012″. Ancasta
    • “Just a quick thank you for organising the show and inviting us to take part. I have picked up 4 new prospects from the show and met with some existing ones and undertaken some very good networking – so a big success for us. If you are thinking of undertaking the show again next year, please count us in”. C-Fury
    • “We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here. We have had some very good interest and may have some potential future contracts. The Sandbanks Boat Show is much better than whet the Liverpool Boat Show would have been and we would be really keen to exhibit again next year”. Cove Marine
    • “We were delighted to support the first ever Sandbanks Boat Show. The atmosphere was fantastic and it was great to see so many boat enthusiasts enjoying this highly successful event. Congratulations and roll on the Sandbanks Boat Show 2012″. Ellis Jones Solicitors
    • “We are absolutely thrilled that Harrison’s Fund has been chosen as the nominated charity for the Sandbanks Boat Show. It is a fantastic opportunity for us to raise awareness of this stinker of a disease and for the charity within a local community that is very close to our hearts. With everyone’s help we can …make time”. Harrison’s Fund
    • “It is with great pleasure that I write to congratulate you all on a hugely successful inaugural Sandbanks Boat Show, which resulted in sales for us. Your planning, attention to the minute of detail and final execution was excellent. I am delighted for you all and certain that all your efforts will be rewarded within the specialised yachting and more so, in the general press. A great event that just shows what can be achieved with hard work and dedication – congratulations.We will definitely be there next year! Thank you again”. Marina Marbella
    • “An excellent show, at the right time, the right location and the right duration”. Offshore Powerboats
    • “We have enjoyed every minute of it and would love to do it again”. Pascoe
    • “Great Show! Perhaps it would be more beneficial to run it over a Friday, Saturday and Sunday next year. It is being held at a great time of the year and with more time to organise next year’s show it will make for a very interesting second show”. Pearl Motoryachts
    • “This has been a very successful weekend. There have been people here not only from all over the UK but from all over the world. We have had some great interest from people from Russia who heard about this show from the internet. The organisation of this event has been superb. The quality of people that visited was brilliant and we are all pleasantly surprised. Three words to sum up the show – pleased, surprised and impressed”. Princess
    • “Thanks to Russell Hayden and his team for sowing the seed for the Sandbanks Boat Show to grow into a significant South Coast event. The timings are perfect for discussions around general interest or more serious negotiating and it represents a perfect stepping stone to Southampton in September. With the challenges faced by the marine sector right now it should be a real shot-in-the-arm for prospective purchasers and suppliers alike. The location here at Poole remains one of the key, gold-chip convenient south coast destinations for boating. And with over 70 boats now expected to be on show over the 3 days every road leads to Salterns Marina on 11, 12 & 13 May. Sandbanks Boat Show has become a must-see event for the 2012 season. And if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, the bottom line is it’s Free!”. Wessex Marine
    • “The show had a great atmosphere, and was buzzing from start to finish despite the weather. It was a great opportunity to showcase our range in an area that has been very important for Windy. We were very pleased with the interest and hope to be back next year”. Windy
