Used Boat Market Joins Southampton’s September Show Schedule

18th August 2020
Used Boat Market Joins Southampton’s September Show Schedule

Preowned boats will get their own marketplace during next month’s boat shows in Southampton.

Why Boats’ Used Boat Show at Deacons in Bursledon on the Hamble will run from 11-20 September concurrently with Boats 2020, the ‘alternative’ event replacing this year’s Southampton International Boat Show, not to mention The Ocean Village Boat Show at MLD Marinas.

Open daily from 10am to 6pm, the Used Boat Show will showcase the range of used boats to visitors while maintaining all practical precautions against coronavirus, ensuring safety for show staff, sellers and potential buyers alike.

“It’s a great time for anyone who is looking to sell their boat,” says Why Boats director Ian Watkins. “The market is really buoyant and currently there is a real demand for used boats, both power and sail.

“Listing your boat for the show is very simple, just give us a call and we’ll do the rest.”

For a £150 listing fee, sellers will get a discount on commission (5% plus VAT) as well as a free lift, scrub and block off, one-month free storage ashore and 25% off storage ashore until 31 December.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
