The largest outdoor sale of boating items in Europe - Beaulieu Boatjumble - returns on 22 April 2018, along with PBO's Ask the Experts LIVE

Preparations are well underway for the 41st Beaulieu Boatjumble, which promises hundreds of stands selling new and old gear, boats and clothing.

Held annually on the stunning Beaulieu Estate in the New Forest in Hampshire, the event will also see the return of Practical Boat Owner’s Ask the Experts LIVE, where visitors can watch demonstrations and meet marine industry specialists, as they give expert advice and answer event-goers’ questions.

This year’s event will be taking place on Sunday, 22 April.

The Boatjumble aisles will be packed with yacht and motor boat spares, ropes, outboard engines, tools, lifejackets, wet weather clothing, charts, flags and boating paraphernalia.

Take a stroll along Boatmall to see a wide selection of the latest products from leading marine industry manufacturers.

Even those looking for a boat will be tempted by the range of vessels on offer. From inflatable dinghies, canoes and small sailing boats, all the way up to trailer-mounted yachts and powerboats, Boatmart will be the place to see a selection of new and used boats.

There will be even more for those who love life afloat with the return of popular Trunk Traders, as boatjumblers sell off surplus boating items that have been hiding in their lockers, sheds and garages all winter.
