BoatLife Live will take place 15-18 February 2024 at the NEC, and the show will fill three halls with a mix of boats, watersports and equipment whilst showcasing a whole host of brands. This fantastic event is for the entire boating community to come together and celebrate their love of life on the water. It’s the perfect opportunity to re-connect with colleagues and friends, stay up-to-date, explore and discover the boats and equipment on show, including the latest and innovative models. On the Live Stage you can hear talks from boating faces you know and love, while there is also an Inland Zone and a Virtual Reality feature – the show has been curated to give the whole family a day out and celebrate the boating lifestyle. BoatLife Live made memories at the inaugural show in 2022 with great visitor feedback, strong sales and companies promptly rebooking for 2023. BoatLife is proud sponsor of the Youth Sailor of the Year category at the British Yachting Awards.

We create Dartmouth English Gin with the finest botanicals we can source from around the world, together with herbs, flowers and fruit from the Calancombe Estate in Devon. The crystal clear fresh spring water, sourced at Calancombe, is an essential element of the gin we produce. Dartmouth English Gin is smooth, full bodied and refreshing. It can be enjoyed on its own, is delightful with tonic and is the perfect foundation for a wide range of cocktails, where the gin’s complexity and balance provide the perfect serve. Our families’ past has been woven into the fabric and history of Dartmouth and the surrounding area for centuries – shipwrights, master mariners, Brixham trawlermen. We have created a contemporary, classic and also now an award-winning gin that reflects our maritime heritage, bearing the name of one of England’s most iconic harbours.


From humble beginnings in 1885, Davey & Co was originally based in Leadenhall Street in London. The company evolved and grew, moving to its famous address at 88 West India Dock Road, London E14, where it successfully traded for over 100 years and still trades as one of the UK’s oldest marine companies. Now based in Britain’s oldest recorded town of Colchester, it specialises in traditional boat repair materials, tools and classic boat fittings. Most fittings are produced in the UK in bronze/gunmetal or brass. The philosophy of quality handmade fittings hasn’t changed over the years and is underpinned by our position as an MOD supplier since our inception.

Our product range covers items that have been in production throughout most of the last century, and are still produced in the same way, from the same patterns, today. Largely made in the Midlands of England, we offer genuine cast bronze, brass and galvanised fittings. Davey has embraced the future with a range of newly designed products handmade in Britain with the same traditional flare and quality the company has become known for.


Haven Knox-Johnston Specialist provide a tailored service to boat owners that traditionally require a more specialist insurance policy. For over 20 years, we’ve put people at the heart of our service and our in-depth knowledge of the marine underwriting market and our close relationships with insurance providers allow us to negotiate the terms of your cover, and skilfully negotiate the terms of your cover to suit your vessel and your plans for her.

Most insurers are more than happy to cover you if you fit into their preferred customer profile. We, however, recognise that there are many yacht owners who refuse to compromise on their choice of yacht, and what they want to use her for, simply to meet their insurer’s expectations. With access to an unrivalled portfolio of products and services, we will be able to find the right yacht insurance and craft it to your specific needs.
