BoatLife Live is the first Boat Show to kick off the season and get ready to get back on the water in 2022. The brand-new show runs 17 – 20 February at the NEC in the heart of the midlands and promises to be a great shop window to all things boating.

From inland boats to RIBS to powerboats and paddleboards it has something for everyone. Whether you’re a first-time or experienced boater, this event is for you and the family.

With a replica traditional river-side pub and Mediterranean bar, there will be plenty of places to meet old friends and make new ones while listening to live music and enjoying the energetic atmosphere.
