Models from Princess and XO are among the first to be confirmed for the London On-Water Boat Show, which returns to the capital in May

Organisers of the London On-Water Boat Show have confirmed the first four models that will be going on display at St. Katherine Docks later this year.

Run in conjunction with the London Yacht, Jet and Prestige Car Show, the four-day event is returning for a second year from May 4-7.

Visitors will be able to view three models from Princess Yachts, ranging from the entry-level V39 sportscruiser to the IPS-powered V48 and the luxurious Princess 72 Motor Yacht (pictured above).

What’s more Poole-based brokerage Wessex Marine will be bringing its best-selling XO 270, which proved to be a smash hit last year, with Poirot actor and local resident David Suchet placing an order at the show.

Other key exhibitors include Offshore Powerboats, Spirit Yachts, Discovery Yachts and Glider Yachts, with the latter planning to use the London On-Water Boat Show to launch its radical SS18 design.

Advance tickets for the London On-Water Boat Show are on sale now, with prices starting at £9 per adult, while combined tickets to visit the London Yacht, Jet and Prestige Car Show at Old Billingsgate as well cost £18 in advance or £27 on the door.
