The capital’s newest boat show has returned for a second year, with an impressive fleet on display at the 2016 London On-Water Yacht & Boat Show
The four-day event runs until Saturday (May 7) in partnership with the London Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show at Old Billingsgate Market.
And this year’s event got a sprinkling of stardust, as Poirot actor David Suchet was on hand to cut the ribbon on the opening day.
However, it is Princess Motor Yacht Sales who have once again made the biggest impression, with three models on display, including the public debut of the new deck saloon version of the Princess V58.
Sadly Glider Yachts was unable to deliver its SS18 in time for the show, but managing director Rob McCall insists that the prototype will be heading to this year’s Monaco Yacht Show instead.
