Poole Harbour Boat Show Latest NewsPoole Harbour Boat Show is to be showcased on national TV this coming Thursday November 17, when an episode of The Apprentice features teams going head to head to achieve the highest sales of boats and equipment.

The 2016 show held on Poole Quay and Poole Quay Boat Haven enjoyed a visit from the Apprentice contestants for one of the event days, who were then given tasks to sell from exhibitors’ stands. Despite wet weather, the teams battled it out in the marina, chatted to show visitors and secured deals on marine-related products.

Jim Stewart, chief executive of Poole Harbour Commissioners, who organise the annual Poole Harbour Boat Show, says: “We knew for many months beforehand that The Apprentice was due to film at the show, but of course it was all kept under wraps. It is going to be exciting to see the results of their time with us aired on Thursday and for the UK to see what a fantastic boat show Poole has now established.

“It will help highlight the forthcoming 2017 show which has many opportunities for sponsors and exhibitors to get involved.”
