Known across its network of marinas for customer service, prime locations and top of the line facilities, MDL Marinas is applying its ethos of relax, enjoy and discover to its exhibition stand at the Southampton Boat Show.

Recreating the experience sailors enjoy at their marinas across the UK, Italy, France and Spain they will host two partners to their stand.

The first will be Salcombe Gin, a traditional copper pot, one-shot distiller based in Devon, will host a tasting session every day between 4 and 5pm on MDL’s stand E52 in the stunning members’ waterside hospitality lounge. Distilling masterclasses will take place on both Sundays (16 / 23 Sept), and Wednesday (19 Sept) between 3 and 4pm.

The Harbour Hotel, Southampton HarSPA, will also be offering complimentary head, neck and shoulder massages throughout the show.

Known for their deep tissue massages to ease muscle aches and areas of tension, HarSPA therapists offer Lava Shell, Bamboo and Lomi Lomi massages in the 5-star hotel.

MDL is looking forward to welcoming over 4,000 members and their guests to its waterside hospitality lounge.

Visitors are encouraged to use the area as a meeting place, or somewhere to take a well-deserved break. With free WiFi, refreshments and massages from the Harbour Hotel’s spa staff, the lounge is the ideal place to relax in comfort.

Helping its members to explore with friends, MDL will showcase its Passeport Escales network of over 120 marinas. Visitors will also be able to discover the benefits of becoming an MDL member such as Freedom Berthing which gives access to the marinas in the European network at no extra cost, and upcoming offers that feature options for winter marina berthing and storage.

Plus, it’s the ideal opportunity to discuss Beds On Board, the accommodation scheme designed to unlock the economic potential of members’ boats.

Additionally, the boat show offers a great opportunity to celebrate and enjoy the end of the season. On the members’ balcony overlooking the marina, MDL’s hospitality lounge offers a buzzing social environment, complimentary refreshments and fundraising events for the two great charities that the company supports.
