The Boatshed team has been throwing themselves into the water inside a large inflatable ball in order to bring you the latest from this year's Southampton Boatshow. Not content with just being the most sociable stand at the show (Fizz @ Five - everyone is invited), the crew has also been trying out some of the fun to be had.

The Southampton Boatshow is open for business and the Boatshed stand is buzzing. Our illustrious MD Neil Chapman was quick off the blocks with an interview for Gulf Radio and The Portsmouth News while the extended team of brokers, willing volunteers and friends were soon pressed into action by the groups of visitors wanting to learn for themselves about the Boatshed system.

The Boatshed Hamble RIB (and Skipper Peter Delbridge) were on hand today to welcome home quadriplegic sailor, Geoff Holt from his record-breaking voyage around Great Britain. The RIB was put into service as the press boat making sure that the photographers and journalists were as close to the action as possible. Peter Delbridge skillfully manoeuvred the RIB so that the media were in exactly the right position to capture Geoff as he crossed the finishing line and the resulting shot was soon beamed to newspapers around the world.

And this was amply proven during a recent excursion to Cowes to watch the P1 Powerboat racing in the company of the guys from Boatshed Hamble, Boatshed Cowes and Boatshed Poole. Time and time again I realised that the reason the Boatshed business works is because each and every one of the team members care passionately about the boats they are selling, the customers they have and the accuracy, attention to detail and all round service that they deliver. But I'm getting ahead of myself just slightly....

Boatshed Barcelona has on its books a really classic boat (Classic Ocean Cruiser) and the owner had been gently hinting that she wanted us to go out on the open water together so I could see her in all her glory (the boat that is, rather than the owner!)
