Seaworks is a bit like a boat show but one where they bring along all the big boys toys :). Big boats and big gear is the story of the day here. If you like your Seafaring gear to be that little bit over spec, then you will love this event.

For nearly 20 years now, Seaworks has been the go-to place and event for all things commercial marine. With over 7,500 attendees anticipated to attend what will be, once more, the largest commercial marine and work boat exhibition in Europe.

No folding teak cockpit tables and matching towel and duvet sets on display here, it's all big strong and practical only.

Strictly trade only access it is a great event to see quality products from windows to work boats and capstans to catamarans (big aluminium wind farm types). Boats visiting include coastal work boats, ship servicing vessels, tugs and landing craft. Some interesting vessels on the water this year include the shallow-draft Meercat Work boats’ road transportable steel work boat capable of working up to 20 miles offshore and the Tideman Boats’ new high-speed professional crew tender. Cheetah Marine will also showcase a new hydrogen powered boat at berths VA32/33.
