13 September 2013, 07:49
The forty fifth PSP Southampton Boat show starts today.
More than a hundred and twent thousand visitors will be heading to Mayflower Park on the city's waterfront over the next ten days.
Boats available to buy range from tiny dinghies to multi-million pound Sunseeker superyachts. Adventurer Bear Grylls will be among the celebs visiting.
But Managing Director Murray Ellis wouldn't tell us the names of any others. He said:
''There'll be sport celebrities and celebrities from film and theatre.
I'd like to think we'll have a long list and Formula One Drivers are always seen around the show plenty of times.''
''We've got some major powerboats that are in excess of ten million pounds.
There are also some multi-million pound yacts, as it's not just about power, it's about sail as well.''
