The 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show will offer some exciting changes in the South Hall, says exhibition organiser National Boat Shows (NBS), with Sunseeker at the west end and Princess at the east end.
Sunseeker’s stand at the west end of the hall will feature its new 28M on the main stand, while Princess will have its 32M dominating the east end of the hall.
More than 70% of the space in the South Hall is sold, says NBS, with sail, power, RIBs and inflatables stretching the entire length. Powerboat companies include Sunseeker, Fairline, Brunswick, Ventura, Bates Wharf and Princess with its main stand in addition to the 32M.
Yamaha will again be building its extensive “marina” with a number of different brands and EP Barrus will also be showcasing a full range of brands including Quicksilver, AB RIBs, Yanmar and Mariner.
The sailboat brands and companies are all starting to confirm space in the South Hall and on the Boardwalk, says NBS, with Moody, Grand Soleil, J Boat, Oyster and Northshore just some of those taking space.
Gunfleet Marine will be making its London debut and NBS says it’s really close to announcing many more sailboats next week as conversations continue to take place over the next couple of days.
As an added incentive to exhibiting, NBS has, through negotiations with suppliers and contractors, agreed a price freeze on three on-costs at the show: lifting, IT and rigging.
This will, they say, help exhibitors with their budgets during this challenging climate. And NBS has also made the Boardwalk package even more affordable, with lifting included in the price in addition to supplying the elevated platform, the carpet, the interfacing between boat and platform and an electrical socket per boat.
