Exclusive early access to the show and a booking system for boat viewings on Friday!


For just 1,000 pre-booked visitors and invited, qualifying boating/waterways related businesses, the gates to Crick Boat Show will open a day early.

To celebrate the 20th Crick Boat Show, we have introduced a new Trade & Preview Day to precede the usual three-day event. This exclusive day will take place on Friday 24 May. Tickets are only available by booking in advance and will not be available on the gate  - so book now to make sure you’re one of the 1,000.

Give yourself the best chance to talk in-depth with quayside exhibitors and most other boating businesses, and to see the boats you really want to, before everyone else. Preview Day ticket holders will have exclusive access to a booking system for viewing boats on the Friday, available in 15-minute slots, and available in advance of the show from late April 2019. If you’re thinking about buying a boat, or looking for products for your existing boat, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Plus, to make your time at Crick extra special, you will have access to the VIP marquee, a free hot drink and a 20th show tote gift bag on arrival on Friday. You can also pick up a free copy of The Inland Boat Owner's Book, worth £16.99.

The show will open for Preview Day ticket holders from 12 noon to 6pm on Friday.

All boats, all quayside and boating-related companies in the Show Village and most of the Waterways World Boating Marquee will be fully open on Friday 24 May. The Food & Craft Marquee, an area of the Show Village reserved for general traders and charities, and a small part of the Waterways World Boating Marquee will open on Saturday 25 May. See site plan
