Sail boats at on show at BOATS2020 presented by Southampton International Boat Show Ltd


With the Boats2020 event due to open on Friday 11th September, tickets are pre-bookable and the exhibitor list is increasing as more brands confirm their attendance, many of them showing boat debuts.

British Marine say: “The health, safety and security of visitors is the number one priority during the Show. British Marine, the show organiser, is working hard to ensure that everyone can enjoy themselves in a safe and happy environment. As such BOATS2020 is an outdoor event and has been specially developed to include all the necessary COVID-19 secure measures expected.”

Among the sail boat brands, RS Sailing will be on outdoor stand (A010), in its usual spot overlooking the waterfront and they will be showcasing the RS Quest, RS Zest, RS Neo, RS Tera and RS Aero. Alongside their usual stand the RS21 will be displayed on the water (M001A), allowing visitors the rare opportunity to see the RS21 afloat.

RS will be running their exclusive Boat Show offer, offering significant savings on the purchase of a new RS. If you are unable to make it to the show, their UK Sales team will be on hand at the end of the phone or email to ensure that you do not miss the opportunity. Head to the RS Sailing website and follow the BOATS2020 tab to get in touch with the team.

Clipper Marine are bringing both the new Bavaria C57 (above) and the Bavaria Vision 42 (below) to BOATS2020.

The boats can be found on stands M212-218. “The Bavaria C57 sets trends with its design in the style of a mega yacht. Offering perfect sailing characteristics in all wind and weather conditions, the long waterline is impressive as is its cruising speed. Luxury is not forgotten either with one of the biggest bathing platforms in its class,” they say.

“The Bavaria Vision 42 is certainly one not to be missed either at BOATS2020 as visitors will be able to view the extraordinary, unique exterior and interior layout. Showing that a symmetrical cockpit doesn’t have to be the standard, the companionway from the cockpit to the saloon has been moved to starboard in the deck assembly, which opens up a whole range of exciting new possibilities.”

The N’Fun is “built to ensure the ultimate sailing experience” and is billed as a “high quality, high performance” 30-foot sailing boat. “The modern shape hull offers performance yet remains easy to handle and lightweight,” say the manufacturers. The N’Fun 30 can be seen in Berth M011 at the show.

The Foiling Dinghy makes it debut at the show, exhibited by Dynamic-Sailing. The boat was launched earlier this year in continental Europe.

The boat will be on stand SB09 and visitors can enter a free prize draw to be in with a chance of winning a day on the water in The Foiling Dinghy at either Carsington Sailing Club, in Ashbourne or Netley Sailing club in Hampshire.

“The Foiling Dinghy has been designed by AST sailing technologies and is being sold in the UK by Dynamic Sailing. It is an easy to foil sailing dinghy, purpose built to foil with a dual foil system. It’s affordable, lightweight and easy to transport, launch and handle on land. The new dinghy is designed to be stable and forgiving in flight, yet exciting to sail, and aimed at the club sailor. Complexity is reduced to a minimum, with dual foils that are self-adjusting and self-tacking, giving it the ease of sailing as a Laser, the lightness of an Aero, and enables safe and fun foiling performance,” say the manufacturers.

Finally, the popular range of versatile folding boats from Seahopper is coming to BOATS2020. “They row beautifully, motor effortlessly with small petrol or electric outboards, and with a choice of sailing rig, boaters can enjoy the simple unstayed lug rig. For a more sparkling performance the full gunter rig is also an option,” say Seahopper.

The range at BOATS2020 on Stand SB03/04 will include the Scamp as a folding demonstrator, a lug-rigged Lighter with a beautiful rope fender and a Gunter rigged Kondor with all the trimmings.

The show will be open between the 11th – 20th September 2020. Tickets must be pre-booked at www.BOATS2020.co.uk.
