Vessels Afloat

Our purpose built pontoons which are situated right outside our exhibition halls, display over 60 vessels in a real operational environment in one of Europe’s busiest harbours.
Vessels at Seawork have immediate access to Southampton Water. With no tidal constraints, approved vessel and floating plant demonstrations are permitted at all times during the exhibition opening hours.
One of the endearing features of Seawork is that many exhibitors return year after year.
