Westerly Owners' Association will be hosted by Mayflower Marina on their stand at the Southampton Boat Show

Plymouth’s award-winning Mayflower marina is to host the world’s biggest boat owner group, the Westerly Owners’ Association at the Southampton International Boat Show (Sept 11th-20th).

Though Westerly boats are no longer in production, around 12,000 can be found in UK waters and further afield. A significant number of their owners visit the show.

‘The Association is a not-for-profit organisation so it cannot fund a show stand independently in the way that commercial organisations are able to,’ said WOA commodore Andy Truscott.

‘Mayflower kindly offered us stand space and we’ve been delighted to accept. It gives us a focal point where we can welcome many fellow owners of Westerly boats and it’s also an ideal opportunity to recruit new members,’ he said.
