Leading leisure marine and luxury yacht recruitment specialist, Marine Resources held their 12th and some might say 'legendary' Boat Show Party last week at the Orange Rooms during the Southampton Boat Show.

The now famous party is held as a charity event for the shows exhibitors, industry professionals and the sailing and water sports community to let their hair down during the Southampton Boat Show. This year's party was a great success seeing partygoers donning Bart's Bash yellow shades, Hawaiian flower garlands and dancing with Fusion Aliens that simply got everywhere at this year's Boat Show!

The party was held on Thursday 21st September at Orange Rooms, Vernon Walk, Southampton. Guest were greeted with a glass of Champagne and the Hawaiian themed MR team! Cocktails were on offer throughout the evening with some interesting names; special thanks to, for the 'Bramble Bank', Elite Maritime Selection, EMS for the 'EMS-o Martini', The SUP Company for the 'SUP's on the Beach' and Crewsaver for '#Cocktailsafe'.

This year's raffle saw the fantastic main prize of a surf trip to for 2 to Surf Snowdonia courtesy of main party sponsor MDL Marinas go to lucky winner Tom Vallence. Andrew Simpson Foundation's prize of foiling lessons for 2 at the Andrew Simpson Sailing Centre in Portland went to winner and enthusiastic sailor Lesley Strickland.

Adrien Burnand, Head of Marketing at MDL Marinas, said: "Once again, Marine Resource's party was a fantastic occasion, bringing together industry professionals to celebrate the success of Southampton Boat Show. As well as unwinding after the efforts of the team, the event helps to raise vital funds for charity and MDL Marinas has been delighted to support the cause, which this year saw us donate the Surf Snowdonia raffle prize."

We were delighted with the evening, venue and the continued support show to us from our party sponsors, British Marine and Southampton Boat Show. I would like to thank everyone who came along and helped raise so much money for such a great cause. We hope you all had fun and will join us again next year.'
