Visitors to the Show will be impressed by the choice of boats – from river cruisers to super yachts, ski boats to inflatable tenders you will find a boat to suit your needs and budget. If you are simply looking for advice, many of the exhibitors are members of the Leisure Boat Builders Association (LBBA) the association that has members as diverse as Princess & Sunseeker, manufacturers of motor yachts, to Oyster Yachts, Rib-x and Southerly.Used power boats can be found on the Used Boats Marina in association with yachtworld.com – 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.
In addition to the many sailing boats of all shapes and sizes there is a packed diary at the Show for sailors. Whether you are a cruising sailor, a racing sailor, or looking to take up sailing of any form there will be a whole host of great events for you at the 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show
The World Cruising Club will be holding a seminar on the ARC on Sunday 8th January including how to equip your boat, what you should be focusing on. There will be an ex ARC boat at the Show that you can inspect and glean some ideas from – you could also buy the boat.
