The Irish Marine Federation aims to take a stand to promote Irish marine businesses at the forthcoming London boat show 2016 (8th to 17th January at EXCEL London).

The idea behind this initiative is to highlight Ireland as a nearby boating destination with plenty of travel connections for UK sailors and boaters.

Ireland is the only English speaking Euro based country in Europe offering very competitive pricing on: marina berths, boatyard facilities, sailing schools plus a variety of boating services when compared to UK stg prices.

As a joint initiative, the Irish stand gives firms the opportunity to promote at a fraction of the cost of attending on an individual basis.

Well known Irish sailing administrator Ciara Dowling will represent the IMF at the 10 day show.

There will be a limited amount of wall space for Irish companies to advertise and Ciara will be able to go through options directly with those interested.

As time is of the utmost importance coming into Christmas we hope to agree arrangements by 10th December

If you would like to get involved please email Ciara on or contact on:
