With over 450 exhibitors showcasing hundreds of boats, and the very best the marine industry has to offer right on our back door step, the London Boat Show is a great excuse for a trip to the capital, while grabbing the perfect opportunity to preview what the new year has brought us.
Held in the Excel Exhibition Centre which is on the north quayside of the Royal Victoria Docks, the developers who opened the centre in 2000 made sure that this venue could not be easier to reach.
Once in London, the Jubilee Line is recommended as the quickest route. Alight at Canning Town and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR train, for the quick 2-stop journey to Custom House for ExCeL (West) or Prince Regent for ExCeL (East).
The Emirates Air Line Cable Car connecting ExCeL London and the O2 opened in summer 2012, and now makes it possible to travel by Thames Clipper between central London and the O2 and then by Cable Car across the Thames to ExCeL London.
If you’re driving, simply follow the signs for Royal Docks, City Airport and ExCeL. There is easy access from the M25, M11, A406 and A13.
This show promises to offer us a whole host of exciting new attractions and experiences including your unique opportunity to control the weather as you enter the show! Super sensitive sensors will detect your body movement as you approach the entrance, and the rain will stop! Back away, and it will pour once more. Sir Ben Ainslie and his racing team BAR will be one of the main attractions, as he leads the British Challenge for the 35th America’s Cup. With a 4D experience, watersports pool and datatag lab, and much more, the show genuinely will be providing something for all of its visitors.
The past 30 years has seen this area of London more than double its population, and become a major business centre, which benefits from a huge choice of holiday/ quick break accommodation.
This year's Exhibitors list includes all the world’s leading sail and motor boat brands, and of course we will be there with Beneteau Power and Sail on Stand A410 while Prestige will be on Stand E420. If you have any queries, would like to find out more about the show, or wish to book an appointment to view, please don’t hesitate to call us on 02380 450 000.
