The South Wales Boat Show in 2010 Celebrated its FIFTH Year! All our shows have been very well attended at the old location and now here in SA1 Swansea, have a look at the TV coverage covering the show. The show which saw thousands of visitors again for the boat show. A range of attractions were offered throughout the weekend including fairground, a Pirate ship beach for the kids with a play area and huge sandpit, Six knot Challenge, father's day sea shanty singing contest! and multitude of chandlery stalls and over 300 craft from major and local manufacturers on display. Over 6,000 people have now enjoyed The Come and Try on the lake or dock aboard jet ski's, zapcats, sailing dinghies and other craft. All these will be back for the 2011 show in Swansea SA1 plus several new attractions.
We have again had loads of brilliant feed back from Visitors and many of the companies from within the industry who we try to represent here with excellent sales and further new Exclusive New Product launches too. We work hard all year to make the event develop and we are delighted that again we had even more Exhibitors as well as public attend the show. The come and try was run by Swansea WaterSports and kindly supported by National Boat Shows for a third year and put a record number of families on the water too! We are Please to confirm we are taking bookings for the 2011 show running from the Friday the 17th of June- Sunday the 19th June 2011
We are again very grateful for the massive support of so many Welsh, U. K. European Companies and individuals who have supported our show to really put the Welsh and U. K. Marine industry on the map in South Wales. This year we have even more Exhibitors and products that attended our event, we made our target again for the 5th year of just on 200 different companies being represented and with only hours to go, we were still getting bookings!, our new layout with the entrance to the show through the further extended and fully carpeted 6,000sq foot Main Marquee was a great success and for the 5th year running totally sold, with over 275 craft on display. It was very clear from the feed back we have had since and during the show, that there is no where else in Wales where you could see the massive selection and range of products on offer again. We are very proud that our family run show in Five years has grown to become clearly the biggest regional boat show of its type in the UK.
Over the years the show has helped the industry in being an excellent venue to market products. High lights from over the years include Prosser Marine recorded the biggest individual sale of the South Wales boat show with a £280,000 Fairline powerboat, he then went on to sell a 38ft Cruiser yacht too all in the same weekend!. The success of our shows hasn't stop there either with 5 sales reported from the recently launched GGF Falklands fast fisher, Pembrokeshire Sports Boats & Pictons along with Bayliner have all confirmed sales at the shows to date. Generally all exhibitors have reported excellent sales and many took confirmed orders for craft at the shows. The end result meaning that most have rebooked along with several new companies who are looking forward to being at our new venue again in June!!!.
