First staged in 2008 as an opportunity to showcase the Island’s marine leisure industry, the show continues to grow, both in terms of size and reputation. It remains the largest free entry public event in the Channel Islands, regularly attracting in excess of 30,000 visitors over the three days.
The Barclays Jersey Boat Show draws a wide and varied audience that is fully engaged and ready to experience everything the event has to offer. We have activities and entertainment features for everyone, from the most experienced boat owner wishing to discover the latest offerings from the industry, through to curious novices and active families looking for a jam-packed fun day out. This makes it the perfect opportunity for companies to maximise their brand exposure and capitalise on the potential of the audience.
