Thousands of the best British and international boat brands and suppliers will take part in the Southampton Boat Show, which starts today.

Running until September 23, a number of attractions are on offer and Team GB Olympians and Paralympians will be there to open the 44th show.

There’s a range of activities such as Get Afloat, which lets eight to 16-year-olds get on the water with qualified instructors.

Stunning feature boats will be on display including Amelie Rose, a beautiful replica Isles of Scilly pilot cutter and HMS Medusa, the locally-built 1943 Harbour Defence Motor Launch.

Tickets cost £16 to £34 and kids go free.
