Boat show to welcome visitors on board again after a two-year hiatus


Launched over a decade ago, the free lounge regularly attracts around 30,000 people to St Helier Marina and the adjacent weighbridge.

It usually takes place on the bank holiday weekend in early May, but has not been able to continue since the start of the pandemic. However, the organizers have announced that he will return next year between Friday June 10 and Sunday June 12.

Jersey Harbor Master Captain Bill Sadler said: “In what has been a difficult time for all of us, we are delighted to once again have the opportunity to showcase the best of the maritime community in island to residents and visitors. Over the years, the show has become a staple in many people’s calendars, and we look forward to welcoming them on board again.

The new date for the event is the result of the ongoing renovation of St Helier Marina, which is not expected to be completed until the end of May.

Mr Sadler said: “It will also be great to show off our refurbished marina in St Helier and the new pontoons at Albert Pier and we hope our newest ship, the Duchess, can also attend. Ports of Jersey is pleased to have the continued support of Barclays as title sponsor and, alongside them, our other sponsors, shipping traders, exhibitors and attendees. We can’t wait to put together another fantastic community-focused show.

Managing Director and Head of Crown Dependencies for Barclays, Paul Savery, said: “I am delighted to welcome the return of the Barclays Jersey Boat Show in June 2022, which will see us re-launch our valued partnership with Ports of Jersey. This key community event provides the island with an opportunity to showcase its thriving maritime, leisure and tourism industries. He added, “We missed the show and can’t wait to celebrate the weekend with events at our new Esplanade offices, which overlook the arena.” Our continued support as title sponsor demonstrates our commitment to the future prosperity of the island, allowing the community and visitors to celebrate all it has to offer.

Registration for exhibitors, including catering concessions, is now open and can be viewed online at jerseyboatshow.com.
