Boating experts will be on hand to answer event-goers’ questions at Beaulieu’s Boatjumble on Sunday 24thApril. The Ask the Experts feature is back by popular demand, with leading marine industry experts sharing their specialist knowledge and answering boating questions.
With thousands of new and used boating bargains, Beaulieu’s Boatjumble is the largest outdoor sale of maritime items in Europe and offers a one-stop-shop for enthusiasts. Browse hundreds of stands with items on sale, from yacht and motor boat spares and accessories to ropes, fenders, clothing and tools. With special show prices, there are deals to be made on the events fields to suit every pocket.
Beaulieu’s Events Manager Judith Maddox said: “If it exists in the nautical world, you’ll find it at the Beaulieu Boatjumble and we are looking forward to celebrating our 39th Boatjumble this year.”
Watch demonstrations on life-raft inflation, varnish and sealant application and diesel engine servicing, discover tips about buying and selling boats, cooking at sea, electronics, glass-fibre repairs, marine gas and more. The RNLI Community Safety team will also host a free lifejacket clinic.
If you have nautical paraphernalia to sell, clear out your locker, shed or garage and deal from your car boot at Trunk Traders. A highlight for buyers and sellers, this section of the show always features a variety of second-hand stock on offer from amateur jumblers. A Trunk Traders ticket also allows early access for the best bargains at the event as well as entry for two people.
For a selection of new and used vessels for sale, Boatmart offers nearly-new boats, immaculate classics and complete renovation projects. While Boatmall has the latest products from leading manufacturers, displaying trailerable yachts, dinghies, motorboats, accessories, clothing and services.
The Classic Motor Boat Association will display members’ classic boats and antique outboard engines. Members will also be on hand to talk to visitors about the association’s activities.
Also returning for 2016, Ramora UK will hold its Flare Amnesty collection at the show, in partnership with the Hampshire Constabulary Marine Police Unit. Bring along your old and unwanted flares and, for a small donation, have them safely disposed of by the experienced explosive ordnance disposal team.
Beaulieu is welcoming boating clubs to join the event, offering complimentary stands to clubs and associations. The free stand, including entry for four club members, can be used to sell sailing spares to raise funds for a club, or to promote its activities.
