Following its most successful ever summer, Borrow A Boat will once again play a prominent  part in the Southampton International Boat Show from 16-25 September with the  announcement that the Quarterdeck Bar will now be renamed the Borrow A Boat Quarterdeck Bar & Restaurant.  



The UK’s leading boat rental and yacht charter marketplace will take over the flagship waterfront watering hole, turning it into an oasis of Borrow A Boat blue. Located right above the pontoons, the Borrow A Boat Quarterdeck Bar & Restaurant will offer a relaxed environment and plenty of seating overlooking Europe’s largest purpose-built show marina. Also in the tent will be a new champagne and oyster bar, run by specialist charter brokerage, Helm – acquired by Borrow A Boat in 2021.



Borrow A Boat will further increase its boat show presence by offering the chance for one  lucky attendee to WIN a yacht charter in Croatia on a Sun Odyssey 490 in May 2023.  

Matt Ovenden, CEO and founder of Borrow A Boat says: “The Southampton International Boat Show is always a highlight of the British boating calendar, and we are proud to be returning with a takeover of the waterfront Quarterdeck Bar.  



“It has been an incredible year for Borrow A Boat, with over 4,500 people taking to the water this summer alone as well as the successful completion of our recent crowdfunding round. Not to mention expansion into several new countries including the US, Canada, Australia, New  Zealand and more recently France, as well as the acquisition of three competitors – Helm, Barqo and Beds on Board.  



“As the pioneer of peer-to-peer boat charter we’re excited to continue our global expansion with even more country launches and exciting acquisitions, as well as planning our world first IPO – all with the aim of bringing choice to everyone, making the world of yacht charter accessible,  affordable, flexible and inclusive for all.”
