The Beale Park Boat Show has evolved from what was a small wooden boating event to an established annual show catering for the entire boating community and consumers alike.
Over the years it has built-up quite a following with numerous loyal exhibitors; while still attracting new businesses, year on year.
Exhibitors and Friends of the Show have endorsed the event by providing their own feedback; with these endorsements and continued support, the Beale Park Boat Show is one not to be missed!
