London Boat Show 2018
This year marked the 64th annual London Boat Show in January.
This year’s show exceeded our expectations, with incredible sales reports across the board, a vibrant atmosphere, strong visitor numbers, the fantastic launch of the all new Boating & Watersports Holiday Show, and good old fashioned fun.
At the 2018 London Boat Show, Barton Marine hosted another successful Women in the Marine Industry networking event attended by over 70 marine professionals and sailors.
Huge congratulations to our Chief Executive, Suzanne Blaustone, who has been named as this year’s Outstanding Woman in the Marine Industry.
A brand new award for Boating Business at the Marine Trades Association Awards – the Outstanding Woman in the Marine Industry Award is presented to an exceptional business professional within the sector. It celebrates someone who strives to deliver time and time again for her business and the industry, has showcased impressive development – both professionally and within the business – and who is passionate about flying the flag for women in marine trades.
Boot Düsseldorf 2018
Crowds of people in the 16 exhibition halls at Boot Dusseldorf 2018 enjoyed seeing and experiencing the international marine atmosphere, with 247,000 visitors from 94 different countries attending.
Boot Düsseldorf 2018 was buoyant and charged with optimism. There was lots of enthusiasm from visitors, and the Barton Marine display in our Lindemann distributor stand showcased our traditional products and the new block range… generating a highly positive response from attendees.
As well as our Boomstrut, which has become increasingly popular across a wide range of yacht types and lengths, the response to our new, stronger, lighter and smaller Barton Block Range was impressive. Classic boat enthusiasts took particular interest in our range of wooden blocks. They admired the elegance and technical excellence, as well as the combination of high performance engineering, and classic design.
