Classic & Day Boat Zone

With highly varnished wooden decks, shiny sleek hulls, coloured sails on gaff rigs and traditional brass fittings, classic boats are always a much-loved feature at a boat show. Returning to this year’s Southampton International Boat Show, is the dedicated Classic and Day Boat Zone, powered by the Classic Boat Magazine.

With its myriad of beautiful craft, with plenty to see, do, learn and try, the Classic and Day Boat Zone is the place to immerse yourself in a wide range of craft, from modern boats inspired by traditional designs and craftsmanship to beautifully restored classics.
