The RYA is delighted to announce that once again its 112,000 plus members can take advantage of a complimentary ticket to the 2019 Southampton International Boat Show, powered by Borrow A Boat.

For the fourth year running members will be able to claim one free ticket to any day of the Show, as well as purchasing up to five additional tickets at the special discounted rate of just £13.50* (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.

“Last year nearly 9,000 members took advantage of the complimentary ticket offer and all the Show had to offer”, commented RYA Membership Development Manager, Conor Swift. “The RYA continues to be great supporters of the 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.”

The Show, which takes place from 13-22 September, has one of Europe’s biggest purpose-built marinas with boats on display from starter dinghies to luxury yachts. This year there will be plenty to see, try, explore and learn about as organisers of the Show, British Marine, aim to show you how accessible and affordable boating really is. Visitors can embrace the Solent waters through the popular Try-A-Boat and Get Afloat attractions or simply browse the latest boating tech, clothing kit and accessories, as well as holidays and chartering opportunities, from over 500 exhibitors.

RYA Members' Lounge

As well as all the Show has to offer, members also have access to the exclusive RYA members lounge situated at the heart of the Show in the Holiday Inn Hotel, offering:

  • Private table service dining area
  • Self-service cloakroom
  • Dedicated lounge area to sit and relax
  • Easy access to a Starbucks coffee station and the Holiday Inn bar, if you fancy something a bit stronger!
  • Access to the Holiday Inn’s Spirit Health Club throughout the duration of the Show, including gym, sauna, pool and Jacuzzi
