Britain's best-loved, on the water boat show got underway on Friday the 13th of September with a hive of activity, world launches and special guests who braved the mixed conditions of sunshine and showers. FUSION is uniquely positioned with a great outdoor booth with cover and plenty of gear to show to the masses.
The opening day saw the world debuts of Princess Yachts International's 43, V48 and 88 Motor Yachts, the Fairline Squadron 48 and Sunseeker's Manhattan 55, 68 and 80 Sport Yachts to name but a few. Sunseeker's launch event included music from Iolla Grace and Amore, and a guest appearance from Top Gear star Richard Hammond.
The award winning range of FUSION marine entertainment is on display with all FUSION-Link partners in attendance, showcasing the entertainment connectivity which has now become an industry standard. Stop by the booth for a demonstration and a chat, there’s plenty of sound, sun and fun at the FUSION booth.
The 10-day show runs until Sunday the 22nd, playing host to thousands of boats, brands, products and suppliers all set on one of Europe's largest purpose-built marinas with over 2km of pontoons. Visitors can get on the water, pick up new skills or refresh old ones with On The Water's Try-A-Boat, Get Afloat and Go Solo from the Artemis Offshore Academy, plus free classes at the Skipper Skills attraction and the RYA Active Marina Experience. This year younger visitors can also try stand up paddleboarding courtesy of Rockley. Other attractions include an array of unique feature boats as well as the Wooden Boat Builders, who are constructing a life-sized boat in the Arena from scratch throughout the Show.
