The Southampton International Boat Show is back and the RYA is delighted to announce that once again its 100,000 plus members can take advantage of a complimentary ticket to the Show.

For the fifth year running, members will be able to claim one complimentary ticket to any day of the Southampton International Boat Show, as well as purchasing one additional ticket at the special 20% off discounted rate of £21.20 (a transaction fee of £1.99 applies for purchased tickets).

Up to two children aged 15 and under are admitted free for every standard adult ticket presented with the 'Kids Go Free' promotion. All children must show a ticket so please ensure you select the 'free' child ticket when you get your ticket(s). Any additional children under 15 must purchase a ticket.

"At the last show, held in 2019, thousands of members took advantage of the complimentary ticket offer and all the Show had to offer", commented Ben Falla, RYA Head of Membership. "The RYA continues to be great supporters of the Southampton Boat Show which offers so much for our members, so it seems only fitting that we are able to help as many members as possible experience the Show for themselves."

The 52nd edition of the show, which takes place from 10-19 September at Mayflower Park, Southampton, will offer plenty of expert advice and exciting opportunities to get afloat!, From paddleboards to superyachts, kayaks to catamarans and all the products and services you need to enjoy life in, on or around the water.

This years' show promises to be bigger and better than ever before, with new features, including brand-new zones tailored to your interests, including Watersports, Dinghy, Classic & Day Boat and On The Water, plus show favourites, new exhibitors and exciting attractions, making it a great day out for all the family.

With a change of location visitors can drop by the RYA stand (J120) now located in Ocean Hall, for all the latest advice and information, from getting started or improving your skills. You can also pick up one of the latest RYA publications, find out about training courses, as well as enjoy launches, events and celebrations.

Due to a change in the show layout there will be no RYA member's lounge at this year's show but drop by the stand for special promotions and competitions. More information coming soon.

To take advantage of this exclusive RYA member offer, visit here.

Please note, if you wish to purchase an additional discounted ticket, you need to ensure you purchase it at the same time as accessing your free ticket. Members will not be able to purchase their discounted ticket in a separate transaction.

Members will be sent confirmation of their free ticket via email which will include a PDF attachment of your ticket (remember to check your junk mailbox). Either, print off your ticket and bring it with you to the Show to gain entry or present your ticket on your mobile device. Additional purchased tickets will be emailed to you with your FREE ticket.

The RYA member FREE ticket offer is available until 23.59 on Thursday 09 September. Full terms and conditions available here.
