Scotland's Boat Show

RYA Scotland is getting people afloat again at the 32nd edition of Scotland’s Boat Show taking place at Kip Marina on the 12th-14th October.

RYA Scotland has supported Scotland’s Boat Show hosted by the Holt Leisure Group for the past three years. Working in partnership with RYA Training providers sportscotland National Centre Cumbrae, You & Sea, Ocean Youth Trust Scotland and Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, RYA Scotland is providing FREE sail and powerboat experiences during the three day event, to get you on the water straight away.


From a cruising yacht to a motor cruiser or a fast RIB ride to fully accessible dinghies, visitors to the show will have the opportunity to get afloat with RYA Scotland. The programme of on-water experiences can be booked in advance at the Scotland’s Boat Show event website or booking at the RYA Scotland Pavilion on the day.


The RYA Scotland Pavilion hosts a range of marine trade bodies and of course the main RYA Scotland Stand where you can find out about our work and the many benefits of becoming an RYA member. Following last year's success the RYA members lounge at the Chartroom Restaurant will be available for members again this year and includes a Gold Members brunch on Saturday the 13th.
