RIB 4 Macmillan Sale!

I am very proud to announce that our RIB 4 Macmillan will be on an excellent stand in pride of place at the Southampton Boat Show this September 2014.

The RIB will be sold at auction during the show on eBay, so the auction will start on the first day of the show and end on the last day of the show with no reserve.

I have managed to get a great stand directly opposite the climbing wall which is this year's show's largest attraction!!!

I am very pleased to say that Boatylcious Marine, suppliers of Technohull and Lomac sport ribs came up with the final piece of our boat show sponsorship to make this happen. I believe they have three boats on the water this year at the show and our stand will also carry their name as well as every other company who has helped with this project.

What we need to do now is man the stand (we have 2 passes for each day of the show) so if you would like to represent the RIB 4 Macmillan please let me know if you can do a day. I will draw up a rota so we know who's on the stand and what day. The idea is to get people to watch the auction on the smart phones etc and answer questions and tell our story.

We also need to make the stand with graphics which explains the eBay auction and that 100% of the sale price will go to Macmillan Cancer Support. We need to keep it simple but still make it inviting! Let's see you ideas...

Thanks again you lot for being so awesome let's hope this gives our boat the best chance for a great sale.

Macmillan and the boat show will support us as much as possible

Best regards Alex

Well given it was me that first suggested exhibiting it at the Boat Show, put me down for a day. And let me know if you need some help with the graphics, I know a company that do a lot of that stuff for the show and I might be able to twist their arms

Brilliant work Alex

We're away on holiday so unable to assist in person but I'm sure you'll have a great time raising awareness at the show and the Macmillan RIB will generate a fantastic winning bid to reward the effort of all involved and, most important, greatly enhance the fantastic work of the Macmillan Cancer charity.

Top banana!
