Poole Harbour Boat Show - Set Sail for ‘Family Quay’ this Summer

Visitors of all ages are set to be wowed at this year’s Poole Harbour Boat Show in association with Sunseeker, with the launch of its new ‘Family Quay’ for 2018. The three-day extravaganza, which takes place on Poole Quay from 8th to 10th June, will have something for everybody, whether you’re one or 100, a seasoned sailor or a landlubber.

You can still expect to explore the latest yachts, powerboats, RIBs and tall-ships before browsing the hundreds of exhibitors showcasing the very best marine brands. To top it off, this year the event organisers, Poole Harbour Commissioners decided to introduce a dedicated area that the whole family could enjoy together.

As well as promising the very best views of the on-water demonstrations and a view of Poole Quay not usually accessible to the public, Family Quay will also feature its own beach area fully equipped with buckets, spades and maybe even the odd bit of treasure for your little pirates to discover. The weekend will also be packed full of performances and activities that promise to keep even the littlest of scallywags entertained whilst the grown-ups can sit back, relax and soak up the atmosphere.

“We wanted to cater for the whole family at this year’s event. The children can expect to enjoy activities such as free face painting and storytelling pirates and lots more in keeping with our maritime theme.”

“With such a wide range of exhibits, displays and attractions we can truly say that there is something for everyone at this year’s Poole Harbour Boat Show in association with Sunseeker. Whether you are young or old, an experienced sailor or a complete novice, or even someone that likes to keep their feet firmly on dry ground, we are confident that you will thoroughly enjoy your visit” said Jim Stewart, CEO of Poole Harbour Commissioners.

The ever-popular live music on the ‘Sunseeker Sessions’ music stage will be back for all to enjoy, along with the opening night fireworks on Friday 8th June, sponsored by Sibbett Gregory. New for 2018 will be the introduction of a second night of spectacular fireworks on Saturday 9th June, sponsored by Brittany Ferries.

The show is free to attend and will open daily from 10am – 6pm, Friday 8th to Sunday 10th June.

The Poole Harbour Boat Show in association with Sunseeker is also supported by Sibbett Gregory, Coleman Insurance, Conker Spirit, Elite Signs, Greenslade Pleasure Boats, Dorset Cruises, Lester Aldridge, PKF Francis Clark, British Marine Wessex, MS Amlin, Designosaur, Mac Marine Claims and media partners, Bournemouth Daily Echo and Wave 105.
