Suzuki RIB Experience at the PSP Southampton Boat Show

Suzuki is offering visitors to this year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show the chance to experience powerboating by running free RIB rides throughout the duration of the show (10th – 19th September). The Suzuki RIB Experience is an additional attraction at the show and will compliment the already popular ‘Try a boat’ scheme enabling even more people to get out for some on water fun.

The boat being used for the Suzuki RIB Experience is a Ribcraft 7.8m RIB, which is powered by one of Suzuki’s V6 250hp four stroke outboard motors. The DF250 delivers exciting power and performance but is also compact, lightweight and fuel-efficient making it the ideal power unit for this type of commercial application.

Suzuki has appointed Solent RIB Charters to run the RIB Experience on its behalf and whilst the rides are free, customers will be invited to make a voluntary donation to the Sea Cadets.

To get involved in this exciting opportunity, show goers can simply visit the Suzuki stand (C005) and book a time slot to go out on the water, subject to availability. The boat can take up to nine people out at a time and all lifejackets will be provided.

Gareth Lumsdaine, Sales & Marketing Manager for Suzuki GB’s Marine Division said, “The PSP Southampton Boat Show is an important event for us as it is a show where customers can get out and try the products. We wanted to maximise this opportunity and give as many people as possible the chance to experience the Suzuki way of life. So if you are looking to test a particular boat type or outboard model you can pre-book with a selection of boat builders via our website. Or if you just fancy getting out on the water for a quick blast and some fun you can take the Suzuki RIB Experience.”

Andrew Williams, Managing Director of National Boat Shows said, “We are very grateful to Suzuki for the commitment they have shown to this year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show and for providing the Suzuki RIB Experience. We believe that it will be a valuable and very popular addition to the show.”
