Check out this new feature at the London Boat Show, located in the South Hall of ExCeL

As the London International Boat Show hits the halfway mark, MBM would like to congratulate Suzuki for delivering a bona fide star attraction with its Inland Harbour feature.

Packed with RIBs and sportsboats, this azure blue pool is a great showcase for smaller boats that otherwise might get lost within ExCeL’s vast innards.

Suzuki’s Richard Whittaker told MBM the response to the ‘harbour’, which was totally funded by the outboard engine manufacturer, had been excellent and that plans were already being made to develop the idea further for the 2010 show.

The brands floating around on the new attraction include Red Bay, Karnic and Solent RIBs, with many more Suzuki-powered craft dotted around the pool’s perimeter.

Signposting for the feature could be better, but it is well worth seeking out over in the western end of the South Hall, close to the main entrance.
