The 2024 Barclays Jersey Boat Show opens today (Thursday 3 August at 9am) for exhibitors and catering concessions to register their attendance. The event will be held over three days at the St Helier Marina and Weighbridge Place from Saturday 4 to Monday 6 May 2024.
The Show remains the largest free-entry public event in the Channel Islands, regularly attracting more than 30,000 people. The 2023 Show featured 106 exhibitors and 78 boats on display across the St Helier Marina, the Albert pontoon and quayside. 9,715 people viewed the boats on display at the marina over the three days, and the wooden sailing ship, the Gotheborg of Sweden, attracted hundreds of visitors.
The Show will, once again, feature maritime activity both on and off the water. Yachts and motorboats will be on view in St Helier Marina, with displays and demonstrations in the Outdoor and Active Zone, a range of marine and lifestyle exhibitors, as well as catering concessions along the quayside and a programme of musical entertainment in Weighbridge Place.
The Royal Navy has always been a popular participant in Jersey’s Boat Show since it was first launched in 2008 and is expected to attend again next year. In the past, fisheries protection vessels and university training vessels have opened to the public. Details for 2024 will be announced nearer the time.
Jersey’s Harbourmaster, Captain Bill Sadler, said: ““We’re delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the best of the Island’s maritime community. Over the years, the Barclays Jersey Boat Show has become a firm favourite in many people’s calendars, and we look forward to welcoming everyone. Exhibitors at the Show in 2023 were very positive about the event’s impact on sales and interest in their products.
“Ports of Jersey is pleased to have the continuing support of Barclays as our title sponsor, alongside our other sponsors, marine traders, exhibitors, and participants. It promises to be another great, community-focused show.”
The annual Barclays Jersey Boat Show is organised by Ports of Jersey, working alongside local event specialists 3D Events. Exhibitor registration, including catering, is now open at www.jerseyboatshow.com
