Poole Harbour Boat Show

The sixth annual Poole Harbour Boat Show will return to our shores in June 2020, from its award-winning home, the Poole Quay Boat Haven. With over 30,000 people in attendance in 2019, the Show organised by Poole Harbour Commissioners, continues to be the biggest-ever, FREE to attend Boat Show on the south coast.

What’s On?

In addition to more than an anticipated 200 exhibitors, over 100 boats will be on the water, including tall ships, celebrity style yachts and motors cruises.

There will also be an impressive line-up of ‘on the water’ activities and workshops which includes:
