Here is all the latest news and events from Clearwater Marine coming up in 2020!
BOAT SHOWS UPDATE
SOUTHAMPTON BOAT SHOW
FRIDAY 11 SEPTEMBER – SUNDAY 20 SEPTEMBER
The Southampton International Boat Show held in Mayflower, Southampton, remains to be the most popular show for our clients. The organisers have introduced ‘Boats 2020’, a lighter version for this year due to the current restrictions in place.
This year, the show will be a smaller affair due to current Government guidelines surrounding Covid-19. The new format will provide a more boutique event, with premium marine brands and a sense of exclusivity when viewing the boats on display. We’re delighted that this opportunity is now available to enjoy a show once again, in a safe environment.
Princess Yachts will display a selection of new yacht models and launches, including members of the F, S, V and R Classes. The full line-up will be announced soon, so do check back for regular updates.
To ensure we adhere to social distancing guidelines, we request that all visitors who wish to attend the Southampton Boat Show and see our Princess yachts on display, request an appointment before hand. Entry to the show will be ticketed and strictly by appointment only – we know everyone is craving their boating fix this year, so we do expect appointments to be booked up, so we advise to book early to avoid disappointment.
CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL
8 – 13 SEPTEMBER
23 – 31 JANUARY 2021
Both these show are planning to go ahead as usual. We are finalising which of our brand boats will be present so do check back for updates. Again, if you’re planning on attending either, or both, of these
shows please let us know and we will do everything we can to help plan your trip.
CLEARWATER MARINE HAS BEEN AWARDED EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS TO MARKET THE FINNISH DESIGNED SAXDOR YACHTS IN MENORCA
Launched in March this year, Saxdor is a revolutionary new brand of attractively priced, premium power yachts that have been designed by Sakari Mattila. Mattila is the original designer and founder of award-winning boat brands Axopar, Paragon, Aquador and XO and it was his ambition to build a new generation of premium, attractively priced boats with modern styling and fitted with the latest technology.
The first two models to be announced by Saxdor, the Saxdor 200 SPORT and the Saxdor 320 GTO will be marketed and stocked by Clearwater Marine in Menorca.
The Saxdor 200 Sport is a 20-foot outboard powered personal watercraft that combines the fun and power of a jet ski with the safety and comfort of a compact boat, for an exhilarating ride on the water. With a starting price from just €22,320, powered by a 100hp Mercury engine, the scooter’s attractive starting price makes it more accessible to grass-roots boaters. Its combination of compact dimensions, lightweight construction, cutting-edge design and high-quality finish, will also make it a very appealing option as a rugged and practical superyacht tender.
The Saxdor 320 GTO is the first of three models in Saxdor’s 32ft series to have been announced. Exquisitely designed, the Saxdor 320 series delivers fast, powerful outboard performance and a refined, economical hull shape. Maximum power with a twin 300hp Mercury option will achieve a top speed of well over 50 knots with an optimum cruising band between 20 and 40 knots. The starting price based on a single 300hp Mercury V8 outboard is €90,900.

A CREATIVE INITIATIVE, FOR A GREAT CAUSE
At Cannes Boat Show we couldn’t hold back to post these pictures of a manually crafted art representing the marine coral that’s in permanent danger because of plastic waste. They picked up a total of 523 plastic bottles from beaches, restaurants, offices and sports facilities in order to handcraft this piece with the objective and commitment to marine conservation and encourage visitors to the Show to think differently.
We also wanted to get involved in this cause and Clearwater Marine has pledged to donate 5€ for each invoice we raise, from 1 January of this year to the Menorca Preservation Fund. Please have a read of the article we posted few months ago.
CLASSIC ‘REGATTA’ RACE IN THE PORT OF MAHÓN
The classic ‘velero’ Argos (1964) was proclamed absolute winner of the XVI Copa del Rey of Vintage Ships. Above, you can see some pictures taken from the moorings while they were making preparations for the race. If you had a walk around the Port of Mahon last week you would have seen many of these beautiful vintage ships.
