Get onboard with this FREE opportunity to glide through the waters in a high-speed RIB, motor yacht or cruise across the Solent under sail. Perfect for everyone from bold beginners to sailing veterans, potential buyers or families just looking for an adventure.
Try–a–Boat is located in the new On The Water Zone and is always one of the show’s top attractions and it’s first-come-first-served, so make sure you book your ride as soon as you arrive at the show at the On The Water booking point located at Festival Green. Please note, children must be over the age of 8 to take part and dogs are not permitted on the boats.
For the safety of our visitors, Try-a-Boat and Get Afloat features require pre-booking while you’re at the show. The booking area in Festival Green is super easy to find between the Watersports and Dinghy Zones. Or alternatively, book in advance here.
