    Visitors Exploring One Of The Many Sunseekers.

    The Southampton International Boat Show, sponsored by Borrow A Boat has acted as the launch-pad for boating legends, as well as being the platform for the evolution of ground-breaking technology and tracking the rise of global marine brands.

    Several environmental initiatives were launched last year, including a dynamic three-year pledge to move away from single use plastics, serve only sustainable fish, and continue to recycle waste wherever possible. Building of the success in 2018, show organisers are introducing a number of additional commitments for this year’s event:

    A beach clean-up operation open to members of the public in the build-up to the Show, to help protect and support the iconic coastal habitat and wildlife; and an Environmental Award will be launched at this year’s show to recognise brands who have gone above and beyond to reduce their environmental impact and introduce sustainable working practices.
