MDL Marina's Ocean Village Boat Show

Marina group to organise event at Southampton marina over postponed boat show dates

In the wake of the postponement of the 52nd Southampton Boat Show, the marina operator, MDL Marinas, unveiled plans to host a boat show over the same dates at its flagship Ocean Village Marina in Southampton. The Ocean Village Boat Show will be held between the 11th-20th September and is set to host up to 80 new boats afloat in the marina from the sail and power markets. Tickets for the show will be available online from the 3rd August via the MDL Marinas website. Entry will be free, but only those pre-registered for tickets will be able to gain access to the show. There will also be special Coronavirus safety precautions in place for visitors and exhibitors. MDL’s Sales and Marketing Director, Tim Mayer, explains “To manage the health and safety we’re allocating three-hour time slots to visitors when they register online and the number of individuals in each time slot will be restricted. A one way system will be in place and the pontoons will be double width to ensure safe passing. Branded face masks will also be made available to all attendees.” Confirmed exhibitors include Jeanneau dealers, Sea Ventures, and Prestige Yachts and Beneteau broker, Ancasta. Other motorboat brands due to exhibit include Bayliner, Galeon Yachts, Azimut and Axopar.
