Exhibitors at the inaugural show treading new ground in the North West include major global boating brands across power, sail, fishing, canal boating and canoeing categories. Show goers will be able to view brands such as Fairline, Sealine, Sunseeker, Princess, Azimut, Rodman, Beneteau, Bavaria, Legend and Passport.
The event is set to be a spectacular boat show with the potential to become the most high profile in Europe. Naval vessels and historic tall ships will add impact within the docks as well as a comedy, sea shanty and marine literary festival planned.
Two sailing regattas will run during alternate show weekends and the aqua-theatre provides sailing and power demonstrations with zap cats, dinghy match racing and live music on a floating stage.
Broadcasts from the Royal Wedding will be live via a large screen at the aqua-theatre bringing the action at Westminster Abbey straight to Liverpool. The Guinness Bar will also be making an exclusive return with stunning views out over the water based action.
