With the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show now just two weeks away, the organisers have confirmed the attendance of several top brands, including Aquador, Sealine, Broom, MasterCraft, Haines Marine, Chapparal and Bavaria. That means that, in all, there will be more than 100 craft on the Powerboat Boardwalks - and down on the show floor, Elan, Hobie Cat, Arbor Yachts, Swallow Boats, Ribeye and Powercats have also now confirmed their attendance.

London International Boat Show

The Starter Boat area (which is larger than that seen at the 2012 event) will display more than 30 craft, with boats from ABC marine, Fine Design, BHG Marine, Churchouse Boats, Simpson Marine, Barnet Marine and Sea Swift - all providing workable ideas for getting into boating without breaking the bank. And other small boats represented include Intramore, Avoncraft and Zego Marine.

Many companies will again be using the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show as the platform to launch their boats - and highlights will include World launches of the Haines 32, the Princess 52, the Intercruiser 31 and the Sunseeker Predator 68.

As regards the attractions, The Knowledge Box has confirmed that celebrity chef Richard Fox, powerboating expert Alan Priddy and the first woman to row solo across the Indian Ocean, Sarah Outen, will all be on hand to give presentations. And in the Owners Association Area (Stand G190), the Beneteau Association, Broom Owners Club, Contessa 32 Association, Moody Owners Association, Nicholson 32 Association, Old Gaffers Association and Westerly Owners Association will all be represented.
