British yards shine on day one of the London Boat Show 2012


With last year’s Princess 32m at one end of ExCeL’s south hall and the new Sunseeker 28m at the other, British muscles were flexing hard on day one of the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show 2012.

Sunseeker drew the crowds as Tamara Ecclestone posed for the Paparazzi on the stern of the 28m whilst elsewhere they showed off their new Predator 53.

Princess had two important launches of their own with the V57 and lovely new V39 making their debuts.

Although they had nothing new to exhibit this year, Fairline and Sealine had news of new products in the pipeline.

Sealine announced the conception of the IPS version of the SC42 whilst Fairline told the press that they intend to enlarge their model range from eight to 14 boats by 2014 including a new open range of sportscruisers. The Squadron 80 still looms large on the horizon too of course.

Away from the UK, Sessa’s Fly 40 made its UK debut as did the Jetten 30 Sedan and the Jeanneau NC9.
