Frequently referred to (rightly so!) as the “largest free-entry event in the Channel Islands”, the 11th annual Barclays Jersey Boat Show will take place over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend of
Saturday 5 to Monday 7 May 2018.
Taking place in and around St Helier Marinas, Weighbridge Place and marina Gardens the show is organised by Ports of Jersey with the operational support of local specialists 3D Events. First staged in 2008 as an opportunity to showcase Jersey’s marine leisure industry to a wider audience, the event continues to grow in terms of size and reputation, consistently attracting in excess of 30,000+ visitors over the three days.
The show remains entirely self-funded by Ports of Jersey with no public investment or government grant given. Commercial sponsorship and exhibitor fees allow organisers to stage the event and retain its free entry policy.
St Helier Marina will be awash with vessels on display, ranging from super yachts to more practical water craft, which will be open to the public to step aboard and view. Local and visiting marine traders from the UK and other Channel Islands representing some of the world’s leading brands, including Sunseeker, Fairline, Princess, Jenneau and Beneteau are expected to attend in 2018.
The ‘Outdoor & Active Zone’ on the Albert Pier, will once again play host to a busy programme of water demonstrations and displays both on and off the water as well as a dedicated area for local leisure operators offering a number of leisure pursuit products and services, including kayaking, rowing and stand-up paddle boarding.
Local talent will once again be showcased on the Main Stage throughout the weekend with performances from many of the Island’s leading musicians.
Exhibitor registrations are due to open at the end of September 2017 and catering & refreshment concession applications in December 2017.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 Barclays Jersey Boat Show!
