London Boat Show @ ExCel, Royal Victoria Dock, London (8 – 17 Jan)

This maritime extravaganza has something for everyone.  Sailors and boat-owners will be fascinated by over 500 exhibitors, demonstrating the very latest milestones in yacht design, nautical engineering and maritime technology.  A range of small craft are on display in the indoor harbour, while larger boats are moored outside on the show’s spectacular marina, which exploits ExCel’s dockside location.

  • Landlubbers, on the other hand, can explore exhibitor boats or enjoy a range of entertainment – from swimwear catwalk shows to spectacular displays of dance, acrobatics and music.
  • A number of experts will be on hand to provide inspiration – whether their passion is restoration of historic vessels or maritime photography.
  • And amateurs can test their marine skills in the interactive zone, which even features an indoor pool for rowing competitions.
