    : The Poole Harbour Boat Show is free to attend, just turn up on the day!

    The Poole Harbour Boat Show is set to return for its fourth year in 2018. Taking place at the award-winning Poole Quay Boat Haven, the show will run from Friday June 8 until Sunday June 10.

    Event organisers Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC) will welcome over 200 exhibitors across the quayside and marina; a showcase for sail and motorboats of all sizes, RIBs, chandlery products, clothing and watersports activities.

    Jim Stewart, PHC chief executive, said: “We’re excited to once again host this marvellous show in the harbour. Poole has such a rich maritime history and it’s a wonderful way to celebrate all that it has to offer.

    “We’ve got something for everyone; including taster sessions, rescue demonstrations, vessels of all sizes, and not forgetting the Friday night fireworks display to open the show.”

    The show continues to be the biggest ever free boat show on the south coast, providing an opportunity for those who may not have been on the water before to get a feel of what’s on offer.

    This is a must for anyone planning their wedding and the one event where the men will have something to do. As well as the usual wedding exhibition, there will be live music from bands and singers you can hire for your big day and an area where you can purchase snacks or lunch.
