Seldén Mast Ltd are delighted to announce that they will be hosting a LIVE Q&A session with Tracy Edwards MBE at 14.00hrs on Wednesday 19th September on their stand (no J213) at Southampton Boat Show 2018. The Q&A with this inspirational yachtswoman will be streamed live on the Seldén Mast's Facebook page. Questions can be posted in advance on the facebook page or asked in person on the stand during the session.

On the Seldén stand at 10.30am on Friday 14th September SailJuice will be opening the Seldén SailJuice Winter Series 2018/19. In 2018, the 10th Anniversary year, Seldén became the title sponsor of this seven race handicapped dinghy series. The announcement will include a presentation from Andy Rice and Simon Lovesey, the series organisers, as well as the handing over of the new Seldén SailJuice Winter Series Perpetual Trophy by Seldén Managing Director, Steve Norbury, to the SailJuice team.

Launching in the UK this year at the Southampton Boat Show will be the new Furlex Electric – the most recent addition to the iconic Furlex headsail furling range. The push button function of the new Furlex 204E and 304E, designed for yachts in the 30'-45' range, makes pulling on a furling line a thing of the past. An attractive, labour saving addition to any foredeck. The Furlex Electric is also available as an upgrade kit which can be retrofitted to an existing Furlex 200S, 300S, 204S or 304S model.

Additionally, visitors to Seldén's stand will get the opportunity to 'Ask the Expert' questions on any Seldén product as a selection of Seldén product specialists will be available on the stand throughout the Southampton Boat Show to answer any queries or to give advice. Whether you are interested in a GX top down furler or would like to buy a top of the range carbon mast someone will be on hand to assist you.

Last but not least, don't miss this year's boat show offers which include a massive 15% off Seldén furling systems, including the world renowned Furlex.
