Northern Boat Show

who we are


The Northern Boat Show was launched in 2015 and is now in its fourth year and moving to new dates in 2018 to coincide with the International Mersey River Festival and Tall Ships Liverpool 2018 on 25 to 28 May 2018.

The organisers of the Northern Boat Show are launching a Western Boat Show at the heart of the Bristol Harbour Festival to be held in Bristol from 21 to 23 July in 2017. Endorsed by Bristol Harbour Festival, this three-day consumer boat show will put sailing boats, power boats and marine products, systems and services in front of serious boat buyers and more than 250,000 visitors to the Festival.

Richard Milbourn, Event Director of the new show said, “There are huge similarities with our Liverpool Show including the ability to cater for both the inland and offshore markets and by being part of a huge maritime festival it makes it a real attraction to visitors. We have a proven track record of launching and running events in this market and Bristol is a perfect location.” Milbourn added, “because it reaches an audience that is far away from the established boat shows.”
