With highly varnished wooden decks, shiny sleek hulls, coloured sails on gaff rigs and traditional brass fittings, classic boats are always a much-loved feature at a boat show.

New for this year's Southampton International Boat Show, is a dedicated Classic and Day Boat Zone, where visitors will be able to see a wide range of craft, from new day boat designs to beautifully restored classics.

Historic gems on show include the fully restored 1946 Osbourne Day Cruiser from Dennett Boat Builders, alongside Star Yachts' brand-new Bristol 6m open launch, a retro-styled wooden yacht with an integral swim platform.

For those who marvel at traditional woodworking skills, Willow Bay Boats will be demonstrating their craftsmanship by building a clinker dinghy on their stand, which will be created over the ten days of the show alongside a completed Farthing sailing dinghy.

With its myriad of beautiful craft, with plenty to see, do, learn and try, the Classic and Day Boat Zone is sure to be a key attraction at the show. Visitors will also be able to meet with friends old and new on the nearby Festival Green with its choice of tasty street food offerings and music playing into the early evening.
