image001 (29)The London Boat Show 2016 is inviting visitors to discover the best of boating, from the ground-breaking innovations of the 60’s to the sailing champions of tomorrow, all to be showcased at the newest attractions and iconic marine brands showcased at ExCeL London during 8-17 January.

For 2016, organisers are taking advantage of the hundreds of marine innovators, adventurers and rising sporting stars who visit and exhibit at the London Boat Show each year with its new feature,  ‘The London Boat Show Theatre’. A dedicated area for personalities to share their inspiring stories and expert knowledge through interactive talks and panel shows, visitors can expect a mixture of ‘A Question of Sport’,  ‘Mock the Week’ and ‘Mastermind’.


The ‘Mediterranean Bay’ will put boating skills to the test live at the Show. The purpose-built pool will host water seminars on close quarters boat handling, sail reefing and capsize drills. Visitors also have the opportunity to trial an array of watersports, from favourite’s including water-walking and kayaking to the latest must-have toys, including the Seabob sourced by Landau UK. With over 500, 000 litres of water surrounded by faux villas and cafes, this attraction will be a destination in its own right.


Alongside today’s cutting-edge technology, the Show celebrates the innovations of yesteryear with its attraction, the ‘60’s Revival’. Showcasing the best of the 1960’s, both boating and culturally, visitors will be transported back to an era which saw the first man walk on the moon, The Beatles, the arrival of the Mirror Dinghy and Sir Francis Chichester becoming the first person to sail singlehanded around the world.


Plus, with the Show’s new layout providing the perfect platform to showcase the finest luxury yachts to the latest in cutting-edge electronics, from over 300 of the leading British and international companies, visitors can expect to witness more than 70 boats and products make their debut at the forthcoming event. As well as seeing new and returning brands for 2016 including Suzuki GB, Four Winns, Arthur Beale and Lewmar.

Murray Ellis, Managing Director of British Marine Boat Shows, comments: “At the heart of Europe’s most pioneering city, we are celebrating the rich heritage of British boating at this iconic event. Visitors will be taken on a journey of discovery, from reliving the great moments of our time to technologies of the future which will revolutionise the way we get out on the water.”
