30,000 expected to turn up
This year’s Jersey Boat Show is expected to attract 30,000 visitors both on and off the water.
There’ll be over 60 landside exhibitors and in the region of 65 vessels on display in and around St Helier Marina.
Landside exhibitors include the very latest in marine related products as well as clothing, artisan crafts, leisure and lifestyle accessories together with an array of catering and refreshment outlets.
Although many exhibitors have previously attended the show this year new businesses have been tempted from across the Channel Islands, France and the UK, including Voisins, Motor Mall, Rolly Tasker Sails, Crusader Sails, Normandie Refit and A2B Electric Bikes.
Boat builders include Beneteau and Jeanneau, represented by many local marine traders, as well as an increasing presence of overseas based businesses, including Bavaria, Discovery Yachts, Southerly and Broadblue Catamarans.
The three day event takes place over the Bank Holiday weekend of Saturday 3 to Monday 5 May 2014.
The Royal Navy will once again have a strong presence and the weekend will feature a varied stage entertainment programme along with demonstrations and ‘have a go’ water activities.
