Britain’s biggest boating festival, Southampton International Boat Show at Mayflower Park is coming soon, 10-19 September 2021. With Government travel restrictions having lifted people can find their new normal and enjoy a UK “staycation” by visiting Southampton, which is currently competing for the UK City of Culture award 2025.
The show features everything the leisure marine industry has to offer. Ranging from paddleboards to superyachts and all the products and services you need to enjoy life in, on or around the water – you will find it at the show.
The Key Yachting team will proudly showcase three exceptional boats for this year’s event, the Nautitech Open 46 (4 cabin), J/99 and Grand Soleil 42 LC (2 cabin).
The Nautitech Open 46 (4 cabin), is an excellent catamaran offering cruise, volume, speed, and comfort and a sleek and elegant design. The living room and the cockpit have been merged to gain space – it’s the essence of the “Open” concept. The living room of the Open 46 offers beautiful volumes, like an invitation to enjoy daily life in an exquisite and warm atmosphere. The interior is very chic, made of dark wood with very bright natural light and neat details in stainless steel. Come and be inspired by this elegant boat.
The J/99 does it all – combining excellent sailing performance and stability with below-decks comfort in a boat that just one or two people can sail. The deck layout and sail plan are optimised for easy handling, while the roomy cockpit accommodates 8+ for fun day sailing. Want to jump into the next adventure-style overnight race or cruise rally and can’t find crew? No problem. The J/99 will reward you with easy, high-speed sailing, whether solo, twin, or with the whole gang.
The Grand Soleil 42 LC (2 cabin) is a model of the Blue Water line. This boat offers comfort, generous spaces and sailing autonomy. The 42 LC is available in two versions: standard or sport. The former is equipped with aft benches and a carbon arch over the cockpit, designed to keep this area free of the mainsheet traveller. This boat is a fantastic pedigree and a premium brand, always offering good performance and speed, even in cruising models.
The Southampton International Boat Show organisers have taken Covid precautions seriously and added new features and more space – making the show bigger and better than ever before.
If you are looking for some sailing inspiration, to enjoy some social time, fine dining, or just the opportunity to attend a real-life event, then this is a show not to miss.
