This morning traders and boats travelled to Hull and arrived at the Lightstream Stadium. Gates where open to the public at 10am. The public started arriving around 10am with high hopes of finding interesting items at fair prices.


The Boat Jumble has lots of different stalls, where trader are selling new and used items. There is a huge variety of traders selling everything from a boat to a fishing fly.

Resident Mr Pearson said “I came here today just to look around. I didn’t expect to buy some boat ladders for £40. I am really happy with the price of them”

“We have been running boat jumbles throughout the country for nearly 25 years. A boat jumble is a dedicated marine market providing new and used nautical goods.” Said One of the organisers.

It is the first time this event has taken place in Hull. Carlton Towers is the normal site where the event is held. But with the weather over the last few days being damp and wet the land wasn’t suitable.

The advantages to a boat jumble are that the traders are able to give extremely competitive prices for brand new goods and items. People can try out items before making a purchase, and a large number of stalls. Finally with so many marine traders and enthusiasts in one place there is always the possibility of swapping information and gaining advice.
