Seminars on designing, maintaining and buying and selling a boat will take place, alongside budget boating and the basics of living on a boat, on all three days of the show.

Boat handling taster sessions, free 30-minute boat trips, a display of Budget GRP Cruisers from BWML and evening music entertainment are also on offer.
