The organisers of the London Boat Show have received a major boost, after Princess Yachts signed on for 2016 and 2017

After a busy opening weekend, which saw thousands of visitors flock to the 2015 CWM FX London Boat Show, the organisers have been handed a timely boost from Princess Yachts.

The Plymouth-based manufacturer has announced that it will be returning for both the 2016 and the 2017 London Boat Shows.

Chris Gates, managing director of Princess Yachts International, said: “The decision to commit to these dates signifies the importance that the London Boat Show still plays in the annual sales strategy of the business.

“The show’s status as a key sales platform cannot be argued,” he added.

The Princess Yachts exhibition on stand E430 includes ten models, ranging in size from the entry-level V39 to the Princess 88.

Arguably the most remarkable model is the Princess 68, which was only launched last September at the 2014 PSP Southampton Boat Show.

News of Princess Yachts’ continued commitment to the London Boat Show will come as a huge boost to organisers National Boat Shows, who have already confirmed that Fairline Boats will be exhibiting at the 2016 event.
