Ocean Village set to host stunning new show

Posted: 15th May 2019

We’re really excited about The South Coast Boat Show this weekend (17-19 May). It’s taking place at our stunning five-star marina, Ocean Village and is set to showcase over 60 beautiful new boat models. Full details are online at southcoastboatshow.com.

Plus, we’re launching our WIN A BERTH for a year competition at the show. One lucky person will win an annual berth for the 2020/21 season at any of our UK marinas. The winner will be chosen in January 2020. Competitors can enter at the show - find the Ocean Village Marina marquee and ask one of our friendly team.

The South Coast Boat Show organisers have dubbed this a serious show, for serious buyers, and as such there’s a stunning range of top end, global brands on display including Beneteau Sail and Beneteau Power. Ancasta will be showing the Beneteau Swift Trawler 30, Beneteau Swift Trawler 35 and Beneteau Gran Turismo 40.  Recently awarded European Yacht of the Year 2019, the stunning new Arcona 435 will also be at the show.

“We’re very excited about this event,” says Scott Farquharson, Ocean Village Marina Manager. “It’s the biggest show we’ve hosted, and its specialist nature is very exciting. Regional boat shows are particularly relevant for serious buyers, large enough to have all the top brands represented, but small enough to deliver personalised, bespoke service. The South Coast Consortium’s show is taking a no-frills approach, and we’re happy to support that.” 

The boats on display include: Arcona Yachts, Axopar London Group, Bavaria, Beneteau power and sail, BRIG RIBs, Broadblue England and R400, Chaparral Boats, Dazcat, Dehler, Dragonfly, Dufour Yachts, Elan, Ferretti Yachts, FinnMaster, Fjord, Fountaine Pajot, Galia,  Galeon, Greenline Yachts, Hallberg-Rassy, Hanse, J-Boats, Jeanneau power and sail, Lagoon Catamarans, MAREX, Marlin, Najad Yachts, Nautitech, Nimbus Boats, Nord Star, Numarine, Ocqueteau, Parker Boats, Rapier Catamarans, Sasga Yachts, Sargo, Seaward, Spectre Boats Int , Stingher, Targa and X-Yachts.

“Ocean Village Marina is one of a kind on the south coast,” says Adrien Burnand, MDL’s head of marketing. “Visitors are immediately encased in a world of luxury, whether they’re accessing the five-star facilities at Harbour Hotel straight from the pontoon, one of the many wonderful restaurants nestled alongside, or checking out new and classic releases at the on-site cinema. From great customer service and experience, to onsite entertainment and 5* facilities, we’ve invested heavily in making Ocean Village the perfect place to keep your boat.”

The South Coast Boat Show’s opening times are 17th May (12-7pm), 18th May (10-7pm), 19th May (10-5pm). Those looking to attend are encouraged to register in advance via the website. The team from Ocean Village Marina will be on hand throughout the event to showcase the development which has taken place over the last few years and to talk to those who are interested in keeping their boat at Ocean Village Marina. Plus, you can find out more about the exclusive Platinum Package which includes dedicated parking onsite, 15% off all beauty treatments at 5-star Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa, a complimentary glass of champagne when dining in The Jetty restaurant and most importantly off-the-boat-into-the-foyer access to the hotel.
