5th October 2010
Boats,Bikes and Bentleys for Scottish Boat Show

Scotland's Boat Show 2010 takes to the sea and shore over the weekend of 15th/16th/17th October. Now in its 24th year, Scotland's Boat Show 2010 show promises to be the biggest ever with over 150 boats for sale - from a £500 dinghy to a £1.2 million luxury motor yacht – and over 30 marine trade companies from all over the UK who exhibit the latest trends and products in the world of boats.

Visitors to the show can view the latest new boats from Hanse, Dehler, Sealine, Fairline and Bayliner, together with an unrivaled selection of quality pre-owned boats for sale – perfect for those considering a boat for the first time or an upgrade to something bigger.
On shore a giant marquee hosts over 35 trade exhibitors showcasing the latest products from the boating world - from state of the art electronics to the latest fashions in marine clothing.
Adding spice to this year's show visitors can view the new 202mph Bentley Super Sport Convertible from Bentley Glasgow together with other luxury models from this prestigious company.
For those who prefer their excitement on two wheels West Coast Harley-Davidson will showcase a range of their iconic motorcycles from the latest production bikes to a fully customised Softail Deluxe.
For extra entertainment there is everything from a Pipe Band to a chance on Sunday to try your hand at radio controlled model yacht racing!
"With last year's show attracting thousands of visitors from all over Scotland, the UK and even Europe, we are now Scotland's busiest boat show and, with over £3.2 million worth of boats and £750K of cars sold at 2009's event, it has become an essential destination for the UK marine trade and for all those contemplating spending time on the water" said Gavin McDonagh, Kip Marina's Managing Director.


Scotland's Boat Show 2010 opens each day at 10am and admission is free. This year it features bike and cars too.
