Buy a boat through an auction

With five weeks to go until the opening of the 2008 Sail, Power & Watersports Show, at Earls Court a preliminary exhibitor listing has been posted.

Oyster, Southerly, J Yachts, Grand Soleil, and Bavaria are among the yachts you can see there. There will also be kayaks, dinghies, fishing boats and RIBs on display. For visitors looking specifically for a second hand boat, the Boat Auction and the Yachtworld Brokers Village will provide plenty of bargains.

“The credit crunch has created challenges for most businesses and we’re delighted that so many companies have identified with the opportunities that our show presents them, with an affordable and efficient way to exhibit in front of a new audience,’ said organiser James Brooke.
