Tell us what YOU thought of the Show

We've had some very positive feedback on the Boat Share Show last weekend and, if you were amongst the visitors, we would love to hear from you with your comments - just use our 'Contact us' page or drop me an email.

The sponsor companies have given an enthusiastic response - so yes, there will be a Boat Share Show next year, but no, I don't know yet when or where.  We're meeting up shortly to consider what we've learnt from this year's show and make those decisions - so watch this space.

Successful first day

Serious enquiries and a number of sold shares made the first day of the Boat Share Show a success, with some positive feedback from representatives of the press attending the event.

For us - - it was good to talk to a number of visitors to the show who had used the site to research what was available before coming along to compare boats 'in the flesh.'

Most used facility was the search for shares, which allows prospective owners to narrow down their criteria. alist of shares available in the boats on view is here  and  exhibitors and sponsors are listed here.

The marquee is up
The main marquee is up at Braunston Marina ready for the Boat Share Show this weekend.  We're just packing stuff into the car ready to go down tomorrow morning and help get ready.  Some boats have already arrived - details of shares available in the boats on view are here.

The show opens at 10am each morning, closing at 5pm on Saturday and 4pm on Sunday.

Parking and admission are free, so do come along and talk to us if you are interested in cruising the canals in your own boat at a fraction of the cost of buying a boat or hiring. is completely independent and doesn't sell anything!

We'll be manning the 'Welcome Desk' just inside the main marquee and we'll try to answer any questions you may have before you start looking at the boats and talking to the management companies.
