span style=”font-family: tahoma,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>blog_london_ boat_ show2012The London Boat Show is held each January at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London, just opposite the O2 and the centre of London”s business and entertainment centre. This year from the 6th to 15th January.

It is a very large event, now in its 54th year, which uses ExCeL”s two 32,500 square metre halls. It is organised by National Boat Shows, which is a subsidiary of the British Marine Federation, the trade association for the UK boating industry.
The show is the perfect start to the season and returns this year with around 1,000 boats, more than 500 exhibitors, new technology and a variety of innovative products.
The Show features a wide range of boats, boating equipment and clothing with interactive sections and feature attractions devoted to boating. There is also a display of tall boats and other vessels in the Royal Victoria Dock immediately outside the exhibition centre. In every shape and guise from a something the size of a small shed – all the way up to something that’s as big as a house! There are boats of every size and shape to suit you.

Glorious boats… and lots of them!

Used power boats can be found on the Used Boats Marina in association with – to access it simply go into the South Hall (where all the boats are) and follow the signage. Many of the used boats on display are being brokered by members of the Boat Retailers & Brokers Association who provide great info on how to purchase a boat.
The Show is also the home to services that support power boaters – training schools, insurance, berthing, engine and electronics manufacturers are all under one roof at Excel. The LBBA & BRAB is an association of the British Marine Federation (BMF) the trade association for the leisure, small commercial and super yacht industries.
