20 yachts from the Southampton Boat Show 2018 in 360 degrees.

The Southampton Boat Show 2018

In a few days, the Southampton Boat Show will open its gates as thousands of visitors meander around the UK best (and only) boat show. If you’re looking at boats and can’t make it, fear not, I’m here to help. Likewise, if you’re looking to narrow down your choice or can’t get on board. Here are many of the boats on display*.

*This is by no mean a conclusive list and was taken from the boats I’ve photographed and that I know to be exhibiting or were shown as exhibiting on the organiser’s website. The Southampton Boat Show’s Website
