Lake Windermere to host its first boat show this March
The first annual Windermere Boat Show will take place from 20th to 22nd March this year and will delight visitors with stunning boats from Sealine, Jeanneau and Four Winns.
The Sealine F380 is set to be the star attraction at the Lake District show - the first model built by the firm’s new German parent company Hanse Group. Run by local broker Shepherds Marine and Windermere Marina Village, the Windermere Boat Show will be free to attend from 10am to 6pm.
This could be the first of many annual shows making use of Windermere – England’s largest natural lake. The organisers have brought together a wide range of vessels, from Jeanneau sailboats to the Haines 32, and the show should be a big hit thanks to its beautiful setting in the Lake District National Park.
At Windermere boats have been subject to a 10mph speed limit since 2005.
First ever boat show on England's largest natural lake
Jason Dearden, managing director at Shepherds Marine and Windermere Marina Village, said: “This will be the first ever boat show on England’s largest natural lake.
“Despite the speed limit on Windermere, there is a thriving boating community here in the Lake District and this is a great opportunity to take a look at a selection of both sail and power boats – from sports vessels to 40 foot motor cruisers.”
Windermere Marina Village is the largest inland marina in the North West and has recently been renovated, with 40 new holiday apartments added to the site.
