Barrus, Fairline, Axopar and more join 2023 BoatLife show

The organisers of BoatLife 2023 say that the second edition of the show is shaping up to be an “action-packed event” with many new brands exhibiting.

After recently reporting a high re-booking rate from many exhibitors, organisers have given further details on power and RIB brands confirmed to appear.

“The power and RIB line-up is going to be a fantastic mix with a great cross-section of quality brands, offering a great complement to the Angling Village,” says Richard Dove, CEO of BoatLife Events. “Providing vast scope that spans requirements such as speed, design, affordability and tech — there is something for everyone”.

The RIB sector will be well represented by a line-up of leading brands including Ranieri and Neptune RIBs as well as Cobra and Gala, both appearing for the first time.

Names for motorboat owners and enthusiasts include Bayliner, Fairline and Axopar alongside Finnish brand Grandezza, Cobalt Boats from America and Polish-based Atlantic Marine, represented by Gibbs Boat Sales. High-powered wakeboard boats Moomba and Supra, plus aluminium Buster Boats, will sit under CDT Marine’s banner. Family boat and service specialists The Wolf Rock Boat Company will also exhibit with BRIG, Iron Boats and UMS.

Marine distributor Barrus Marine was one of the first companies to re-book for the BoatLife 2023 show.

“Following the successful inaugural event, Barrus are delighted to be back at BoatLife next year showcasing Zodiac, Mercury and Mariner outboards plus a large range of our marine equipment portfolio,” says Juliet Boyles. “It’s a great opportunity to get these brands in front of a UK audience at the start of the year.”

New at this year’s show is an Angling Village feature which is designed to showcase the newest fishing and angling equipment, from accessories to boats, and allows visitors to get buying advice from the experts.

SBS BoatLife takes place at the NEC Birmingham, UK, 16-19 February 2023.
