Southampton International Boat Show powered by Borrow a Boat will host a new UK Manufacturers’ Showcase, highlighting the scope and ability of the British marine industry’s manufacturing sector.

The concept for the attraction came from Suzanne Blaustone, CEO of Barton Marine to help support companies who design and build boating products in the UK.

“Southampton is the ideal place to showcase the manufacturing talent and skill within the UK domestic marine industry,” she said.

“There are so many hardworking, creative manufacturers in the UK of all sizes and we should be making sure everyone is fully aware of this, particularly in the complex economic conditions we find ourselves in.”

Production

The Barton Marine team will demonstrate their production expertise and will also challenge show visitors to Beat the Barton Block Clock, a competition to see who is the fastest at putting together the components of a Barton size 3 single block. Prizes will be awarded every day. 

Barton will be joined in the Showcase by RS Dinghies, Topper, English Braids and Dometic UK.

The event will take place every day from 9.30am to 12 noon in the show entrance marquee. Barton equipment will also be shown on stand J316 alongside UK distributor E.P. Barrus.
