This year’s 2nd edition of the British Motor Yacht Show was held under blue skies, hosting the very best of British motor yachts. The event took place at Premier’s Swanwick Marina, running from May 15 – 18.
A stunning collection of yachts from Fairline Southampton, Princess Motor Yacht Sales and Sunseeker Southampton basked in sunshine as each of the brands brought their best models to the Hamble for the event.
In particular, a Sunseeker Portofino 40 in a Union Jack vinyl wrap standing at the entrance to the marina caught the attention of visitors.
The 2014 show built on the success of the inaugural show, with luxury brands including Aston Martin, McLaren, Porsche and Range Rover complementing the yachts on display.
Friday and Saturday evenings featured complimentary drinks and live music on the water’s edge. Premier Berth Holders were invited to join in on the festivities and enjoy a glass of champagne.
Visitors to the show praised the event’s relaxed atmosphere and welcoming staff.
Christopher Head of Sunseeker London said: “We had a great weekend at the British Motor Yacht Show and enjoyed some British sunshine.”
“The show has really developed since last year and it is pleasing to see other luxury brands involved.”
Max Whale of Princess Motor Yacht Sales also commented: “It was great to see visitors so relaxed while looking round the show and the positive feedback I have had from those who came has been fantastic.”
General Manager of Premier’s Swanwick Marina, Andy Osman, added: “I am delighted with how this year’s show went. While still a young show, The British Motor Yacht Show is a major event for Swanwick Marina and I am proud of all the marina staff who helped to make this year’s show such as success.”
