The Northern Boat Show is moving to new dates in 2018 – from 25th to 28th May – and a four-day format because the Mersey River Festival is being combined with Tall Ships Liverpool 2018 and the start of the 2018 Biscay Tall Ships Regatta. The Tall Ships was last held at Liverpool in 2008 when an estimated one million spectators flocked to the waterfront.

The Western Boat Show will remain on the same weekend and will be held over three days from 20th to 22nd July 2018 to coincide with the Bristol Harbour Festival.

Both shows will cover the inland and offshore markets because of their unique positions by the sea and on the canal network.
