The show is the largest free-entry event in the Channel Islands.
The 2016 Barclays Jersey Boat Show will take place over the Bank Holiday weekend, Saturday 30 April – Monday 2 May, 2016.
Organised by Ports of Jersey and 3D Events, the three-day show will once again take place in and around St Helier Marina and nearby Weighbridge Place on the island in the English Channel.
First staged in 2008 as a means of showcasing the local marine industry, the event remains the largest free-entry event in the Channel Islands. In 2015, despite mixed weather conditions, the show recorded attendance figures in excess of 30,000 visitors over the three days.
According to the the Boat Show, the programme of activities is still at the planning stages but will once again include opportunities for the public to step on board a number of yachts and watercraft berthed in St Helier Marina. An array of lifestyle and marine accessories exhibitors, local artisans, food and refreshment stalls will be lined up along the adjacent quaysides. There will also be a full on stage entertainment programme and activities specifically for children.
Some of the exhibitors taking part in the annual boat show include: Princess Yachts, Beneteau, Sunseeker, Fairline, Jeanneau, Windy and others.
