The brand-new show, BoatLife Live, opens on 17 February. The four-day show taking over 3 Halls at the NEC, has secured an exciting line-up of exhibitors, speakers and features and will deliver a memorable first show.

The lifestyle event will be opened by Pip Hare, the 8th woman in history to complete the Vendee Globe and after, she will take to the stage to talk more about her experiences and take questions from show visitors. The live stage is the main attraction at the show, and with speakers such as Katie McCabe, Tom Cunliffe, Atlantic rowing teams and SUP record-breakers there will be something for everyone.

The big spectacle of the show is boats and exhibiting are a wide variety of well known brands at both the affordable and high end scale. From Fairline, Brig, Aquaspirit, Saxdor to Momba, Sea-doo, Viko Yachts and Bavaria. The show will host several boat debuts, including the RYCK 280, Nordkapp Airbourne 7, SwordFish 690, Seven Seas Hermes Speedster, and Polycraft Tuffy 300.

Alongside the boats will be a vast selection of equipment and engine companies, including Quick UK, Raymarine, B&G, Mastervolt, English Braids, Technical Marine Supplies, Barrus Marine Equipment, Bainbridge, Honda and Pirates Cave. Complimented by other marine leisure brands including SBS Trailers, Freedom Boat Club, Flexisail and ProMarine Finance.

There is also a dedicated Inland Watersways zone featuring the popular 70ft Viking Widebeam and also a small classic boat area displaying some fantastic historic and classic boats. From dinghys and launches to a 1930's hydroplane, Skiff's, Punts and even an Edwardian Canoe. The Thames Traditional Boat Festival will also be joining us on our Classic Boat Stand located between Katie's McCabes boat Falanda and The Motorboat Gallery.

Ben Nichols, Clipper Marine, commented "We are really excited to finally have a dedicated boat show catering for the North of England - it will be great to be back in the Midlands to meet all those boaters who don't make it down to the Southampton Boat show and other southern shows. Stock is very scarce at the moment, but we will have boats on display for immediate delivery."

Haley Hadley, ABC Leisure, "We are very excited to be back with a boat at this brand new exciting show especially as its local to us in Birmingham. A great chance to have a look inside a narrowboat and discuss a boating holiday with us.

Jo Davies, Princess Motor Yacht Sales, "We are delighted to be attending BoatLife at the NEC. The show is a superb opportunity for us to showcase the Princess brand at a UK indoor show! We have seen a lot of people who are new to yachting in the last couple of years, so we are hoping we can introduce even more new faces to this incredible pastime."
