British Marine is launching a new boat show in the capital this month called London Luxury Afloat.
While much smaller than the London boat shows of old, London Luxury Afloat will be a good opportunity to see a number of both power and sailing boats in the heart of the UK’s biggest city just in time for the start of the summer season.
The venue is St Katharine Docks Marina, right next door to the Tower of London and only minutes from the city centre, allowing visitors to view the boats afloat in their natural environment. The show will run from 21-24 April with MBY as its official media partner.
Confirmed exhibitors include many of the biggest names in British boat building as well as a number of overseas brands. In all there should be more than 30 large boats on display at London Luxury Afloat.
