Royal visit to IPC Media stand

HRH The Princess Royal visted Motor Boats Monthly's IPC stand at the 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show this afternoon

As President of the Royal Yachting Association, the Royal visitor was at the Show not only to present the RYA Yachtmaster of the Year Awards, but also visit special show attractions and exhibitors.

Motor Boats Monthly’s sister magazine, Yachting Monthly, has one of the most spectacular attractions on

display – the remains of the Crash Test boat they used in a series of features

showing what happens to a boat during a gas explosion.

HRH The Princess Royal spoke

to Paul Gelder, Yachting Monthly’s editor, at length about how it is possible

to make a boat safe to avoid a gas explosion.

If you haven’t already seen

the remains of the boat, make sure you head to IPC Magazine stand, F106. The

display acts as a gruelling reminder of what can happen to your boat if you

don’t take adequate precautions in preventing a gas explosion. You can also pick up the latest issue

(February issue) of Motor Boats Monthly, which is on sale now.
