The Eden 11 impresses at the Southampton International Boat Show
This years’ Southampton International Boat Show saw the Waterlodge team taking two of our models to showcase and given it’s the first time we have navigated such a task, we can report back that it was very much a success! We launched our new Waterlodge Eden 11 craft to much interest among boating and water sports enthusiasts and had the pleasure of meeting so many people over the nine days. It’s been an experience we won’t forget, so we decided to share some of our highlights with you here.
A sunny September to launch the stunning Eden 11
We were greeted with warm sunshine, a mild breeze and few clouds in the sky this year and in turn the weather blessed us with it an incredible turn-out of visitors. The TBS Boats team were busy showcasing our Waterlodge Oasis Three, part of the original range of floating apartments, whilst the Waterlodge team were kept busy with our exclusive UK launch of our new Waterlodge Eden 11.
It was fantastic highlighting the many features our newly launched craft offers to both families and couples alike, and the ways in which a Waterlodge can be used as a second holiday home, Airbnb investment or bolthole to visit on weekends.
Glorious panoramic views from the roof terrace
Those who stepped aboard to view the contemporary and modern styling of the Eden 11 enjoyed the home comforts and space it offers inside. And on venturing out onto the entertainment decks, visitors could climb up to the roof terrace and kick back on the comfortable sofas with a glass of bubbly and bask in the sunshine.
Such are the panoramic views, we were delighted to welcome onboard ITV Meridian, who enjoyed the stellar sights from our roof terrace and utilised it as a base from which to capture some great views of the show.
A day to reflect HM Queen Elizabeth II
On 19th September, the third day of the boat show, like so many throughout the country, we took the day off to pay our respects and watch the late Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral. The Waterlodge team spent the day reflecting on the 70 years’ length of service Her Majesty gave to her country and Commonwealth and we extend our heartfelt condolences to the rest of the Royal family.
A unique chance to win a slice of Eden
Throughout the show, we ran a survey that attendees could complete for entry into our special boat show competition; the chance to win a two-night stay in our Waterlodge Eden 11. The response was staggering, as over 1000 attendees entered but sadly there can only be one winner to experience a slice luxury life on water! We’ll be announcing the winner on 10 October on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
The boat show was a huge success, and we were delighted to see the enthusiasm with which our crafted house boats were received. It’s always great to meet you and we love hearing all your positive comments. An excellent start, we’d say, for the Eden’s maiden voyage to the Southampton International Boat Show.
