British motor boat manufacturer to exhibit in 2011 after a two-year absence from east London event

Sealine has recommitted to the London Boat Show after a two-year absence from the east London event.

The British motor boat builder, traditionally one of the biggest exhibitors at the show, announced it would stop exhibiting at London in October 2008 in order to focus instead on smaller, regional events.

The decision by Sealine will provide a boost to organisers of the show, which is being revamped for 2011. On the cards are more used boats, a new watersports section and a tie-up with The Outdoors Show.

Sealine’s Nick Powell said: “The NBS team has made significant changes to the 2011 show in order to attract a broader audience and to deliver the best possible showcase for exhibitors.

“We’re therefore pleased to be bringing a selection from our range of modern sports cruisers and flybridge motor yachts to the show.”
