Instead, British Marine planned to run Boats 2020 at Mayflower Park, a smaller event featuring mainly motor boats.

This was cancelled on the eve of the show by Southampton City Council due to the rising risk of COVID-19 and growing Government concerns.

The CEO of British Marine, Lesley Robinson said the show would be run ‘at full size’ in 2021.

The event will also feature live demonstrations and talks, live music, on-site restaurants and bars.
