ri To Sponsor Scotland's Boat Show


The newest feature at Scotland's Boat Show 2016, the 'Get On The Water' pavilion, proved to be such a success with visitors and exhibitors alike that it's return for 2017 has already been confirmed. And not only that, but we are proud to announce ourselves as official sponsors.

Following on from the success of exhibiting last year, Riverside Inverclyde is the new title sponsor for the 2017 Get On The Water Pavilion and plans are already under way to add several new features this year that will expand the attraction and encourage even more new participants on to the water.

Andrew Bowman, Riverside Inverclyde's Head of Business Investment & Operations said,

"Scotland's Boat Show in October 2017 provides Riverside Inverclyde the perfect opportunity to partner with the event by sponsoring the Get On The Water pavilion.  With our aim to further grow business sectors and investment to stimulate economic growth in Inverclyde, the 2016 show was the perfect platform to promote the Inverclyde proposition to attendees, visitors and locals as they enjoyed our access to world class sailing waters.  The success of last years' event was evident by the attendance of HRH Princess Anne, Princess Royal and also the influx of families that enjoyed their weekend at one of the true jewels in Inverclyde's crown."

Visitors to SBS17 can see new boats of all sizes - from luxury sail and powerboats to entry level dinghies - and, uniquely for a major boat show, over 100 high quality pre-owned boats for sale at levels to suit every budget - making it the largest brokerage boat show in the UK and the largest boat show in Scotland. On shore attractions include the RYA Scotland Pavilion with marine trade exhibitors showcasing the latest trends and equipment, the Scottish Food and Drink Pavilion, the Clyde Life-Style pavilion with craft & artisan traders, luxury motor cars plus a host of entertainment from pipe bands to helicopters flights!

Scotland's Boat Show takes place at Kip Marina, Inverclyde on the 13th, 14th & 15th October and admission is free with car parking a nominal £5 per vehicle.
