Showcase coincides with nearby Southampton

Folkboats UK open the doors for their first annual used boat show on the 16th September, to coincide with the Southampton Boat Show. This event is being held at the Folkboat UK premises near Lymington and will run every day until 26th September, from 9am to 5pm.

The popularity of this 70-year-old brand is well known to readers of PBO – indeed, a whole feature, Peter Poland’s ‘Folkboat Family Tree’, was devoted to the influence that this iconic little vessel has had on subsequent designs, in the PBO Summer 2011 issue.

Folkboats UK can be found in the charming seaside village of Milford-on-Sea, close to Lymington on the western edge of the Solent – a delightful side-trip if you’re planning to spend a few days in Southampton for the big Show.
