Event: London Boat Show 2013
Location: ExCeL Centre, E16
The London Boat Show opens its doors this month at the Royal Victoria Dock’s ExCeL exhibition centre near Canary Wharf for nine days of marine heaven.
The annual show, now in its 58th year, is the place to see the newest boating designs, technology and innovations. Hundreds of exhibitors are showing their sailing yachts, rigid-inflatable boats, power boats, motor boats and even canoes, with a 500m dock edge on the marina with boats lined up for viewing.
Some of the attractions of the show this year include The Knowledge Box with talks by marine experts and nautical adventurers such as Sarah Outen, the youngest person to row solo across the Indian Ocean, power boating racer Sarah Donoghue and Bonhams Auctioneers marine specialist talking about marine collectibles.
New this year is the Multi Activity Pool, for model boat racing, kids activities and marine challenges.
Also within the Boat Show is The Luxury Brand Show with supercars, watches, jewellery and a champagne gallery.
The Tullett Prebon London Boat Show is on from 12 – 20 Jan 2013.
