The Jersey Boat Show to return bigger and better in 2023

The 2023 Barclays Jersey Boat Show is now open for exhibitors and catering concessions to register their attendance. The event will be held over three days at the St. Helier Marina and Weighbridge Place from Saturday 29 April to Monday 01 May 2023 (Bank Holiday).

The Show remains the largest free-entry public event in the Channel Islands, regularly attracting more than 30,000 people. It will, once again, feature maritime activity both on and off the water. Yachts and motorboats will be on view in St Helier Marina, with displays and demonstrations in the Outdoor and Active Zone, a range of marine and lifestyle exhibitors, as well as catering concessions along the quayside and a programme of musical entertainment in Weighbridge Place.

The Royal Navy has played an integral role in Jersey’s Boat Show since it was first launched in 2008 and is expected to attend again next year. In the past, fisheries protection vessels and university training vessels have visited and been open to the public. Details for 2023 will be announced nearer the time.

Jersey’s Harbourmaster, Captain Bill Sadler, said: “I’m looking forward to this annual opportunity to showcase the best of the Island’s maritime community, including our three marinas which have again been awarded 5 Gold Anchor status. This event has become a firm favourite in many people’s calendars, as there is something for everyone, whether you have a particular interest in maritime matters, or just enjoy the music and catering stalls.

“Ports of Jersey is pleased to have the continuing support of Barclays as our title sponsor, alongside our other sponsors, marine traders, exhibitors, and participants. It promises to be another fantastic community-focused show.”

Paul Savery, Managing Director and Head of Crown Dependencies for Barclays, said: “The Barclays Jersey Boat Show continues to go from strength to strength, which is pleasing to see following the hiatus caused by the pandemic. It is a major community event which highlights the Island’s thriving maritime, leisure and tourism industries. I’m delighted that Barclays is continuing its role as title sponsor, demonstrating our commitment to our Island home, its future prosperity, and the community we serve.”
