Key Yachting at Southampton Boat Show

Marina Berths M429, 431-435 and 355

Key Yachting Ltd will be exhibiting six fabulous yachts at this year’s show, including two new models that will be making their show debut.


The NEW Grand Soleil 46LC – Southampton Boat Show Debut!

The first model in Grand Soleil’s new Long Cruise range has received over 30 orders in 18 months. She is designed for those who wish to discover the most beautiful seas in the utmost space and comfort, with systems optimised for ease of use by a single or double handed crew, yet with comfortable living space for 6-8. With long-range cruising in mind; the living spaces feature copious cupboards, lockers and tanks for storage and equipment. The overall concept is coordinated by Nauta Design, for a maximum expression of “Made in Italy” style.

The NEW Nautitech Open 46 – Southampton Boat Show Debut!

The big sister to the extremely successful 40, the new 46 is the latest addition to Bavaria’s new ‘Open’ range of multihulls. Featuring vast living spaces, maximum comfort for long passages, and ultra modern finishes throughout, the Open 46 is a cruiser’s dream. This model features many welcome features found on the 40, including twin helm positions, transom passage, giving easy access from one hull to the other, rigid bimini, giving complete shelter to the cockpit and gracefully inclined forward saloon windows, creating a sleek and elegant appearance. The new Open 46 is available either with twin helm stations, a flybridge, or as a Powercat.

The Nautitech Open 40

The Open 40 is Nautitech’s third design from Marc Lombard, France’s leading designer of performance multihulls. Lombard boats combine elegance, sea-keeping, and high passage speeds with the renowned Nautitech interior design. This, Nautitech’s third generation 40 footer, features twin helm positions, a transom passage to give easy access from one hull to the other, rigid bimini which offers complete shelter to the cockpit, and gracefully inclined forward saloon windows to create a sleek and elegant profile. Everyone who steps onboard is pleasantly surprised by the sociable, open plan cockpit through to saloon, which is all on one level, as are the helm-stations.


The J/112E is the newest addition to J/Boats’ “E” range of versatile performance sailing yachts. At our most popular size of 36 feet, the J/112E features a spacious two-cabin, aft head accommodation plan and a comfortable, ergonomic cockpit. She is as well suited for the annual family cruise as she is racing under IRC or sailing short-handed through rough weather. Like the new J/122E, the 112 benefits from significantly more natural light by way of large port lights and optional hull ports. The varnished walnut finish adds just the right proportion of classic, wood accents without taking away from the incredible sense of space.

The Infamous J/70 Sportsboat

The J/70 is J Boats’ first slipway-launchable keelboat – designed to fulfill the need for an easy to own, high performance one design, that is exciting to sail, stable enough sailboat for the family, and built to last. A natural evolution of its J pedigree, the J/70’s 7m of sailing length with high aspect, all carbon rig and deep lifting keel, provides spirited performance and stability that feels like a much larger boat. There are now 70 boats sailing in the UK, with an active class association and one design programme.

The Tofinou 8

Crafted by French boat builder Latitude 46 for over 25 years, the Tofinou range is a very distinctive brand of classic day sailers and weekenders, with models from 7m to 16m in length. On deck the Tofinou 8 is sleek, elegant and extremely easy to manage. Underwater she has a modern hull profile with very efficient keel and rudder. Tofinou 8s are used on the classic regatta racing scene in the Mediterranean and as daysailers throughout the waters of Europe. The Tofinou 8 is also available as a lifting keel version for those who sail in shallow waters.

Over on the Try-A-Boat section those interested in the J Boats range will be able to book a demonstration onboard a J/88and a J/11S. Bookings for this will be taken at the main entrance to the show.

We look forward to seeing you! Our Hamble Point Marina office will be open throughout the show for viewings of a wide variety of second hand boats, and examples from the remainder of the J Boats range.
