The Southampton International Boat Show VIP experience, the Quayside Club, returns with a new offering for the 2023 show.
For a limited time only visitors looking to make their visit extra special can take advantage of an exclusive early bird VIP ticket offer and enjoy 20 per cent off the price of a VIP ticket.
For £125 per person (full price £156.25), VIP ticket holders will enjoy access to the show itself, plus entry to the exclusive Quayside Club waterfront lounge. On arrival you will be greeted with a welcome glass of Hattingley Valley sparkling wine and enjoy complimentary drinks* throughout the day and a delicious premium served buffet lunch.
Situated in a prime location overlooking the marina, the lounge promises some of the very best seats in the show, where you can sit back and relax, take a coffee break, or enjoy your favourite tipple, before venturing back into the hustle and bustle of the show.
“Following the success of the Quayside Club launched at last year’s show we are delighted to see it return this year,” commented Lesley Robinson, CEO, British Marine. “We have taken on board feedback from our VIP visitors and will be increasing the outdoor seating area and making the interior more intimate, providing an exclusive oasis within the show where our VIP guests can truly enjoy an added touch of luxury.”
The Quayside Club VIP early bird ticket offer will be available until 30 June 2023. Tickets are limited so to avoid disappointment purchase your early bird VIP ticket today by visiting the website and add a touch of luxury to your visit.

When purchasing your VIP ticket, you will also have the opportunity to book your place on the impressive Thalassa Tall Ship, one of the most beautiful and fastest of the Dutch tall ships.
