Port of Cork Hosts First ‘Boat Jumble’ in April
On Sunday 15th April from 10am to 4pm, the Port of Cork will host a Boat Jumble on Custom House Quay. The Boat Jumble, which comes to Cork for the first time, is an open air market for the sale of boating, sailing and water sports equipment and accessories, both old and new. Second hand boats/dinghies, sails, engines and nautical “car boot” items will also be on sale.
The Boat Jumble format has a proven appeal for trade and “car boot” participants as a low cost way of reaching a high footfall of people interested in marine products and services. The Boat Jumble offers value, bargains and of course the unusual.
To sell at the Boat Jumble (trade pitch or “car boot”) pre booking is essential and restricted to marine related products and services. The booking form is on the web site www.BoatJumble.ie or www.portofcork.ie and must be completed before the day, in order to secure your place.
As well as buying and selling, the Boat Jumble will also have catering on site and some light entertainment during the day. The RNLI will have a presence on the day and will provide a free check on Personal Flotation Devices (PFD). This is an important service to the boating public as the season commences.
The Boat Jumble is a great day for the boating public to find a bargain or that unusual kit suitable for your boat.
For visitors hunting for bargains on the day, admission is €5 and supervised children are free. Due to the restriction of space there will be no on site casual car parking available, however there are city car parks available close by.
