London Boat Show Opens

John Burnham sent in this quick preview from the London Boat Show, which opened Friday.

The square meters of exhibition space booked may be less this year, and Beneteau may be entirely absent, but the 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show opened Friday with plenty to write about nonetheless.

I took these pictures Thursday night, as the show was being set up. The Sunseeker stand was just about ready, although its champagne bar and the rest of the floor still needed carpeting and other accouterments.

Sunseeker on setup day: the stand includes two new model introductions we'll revisit this weekend.

Boats.com has a presence at the show this year as sponsor of the Boardwalk lounge, amidst a number of the newest boats at the show. Photos will be forthcoming, but if you’re at the show, please stop in for a rest and to see what the revamped uk.boats.com site has in store. Among other things, we now publish UK- and European-oriented editorial reviews, news, and features.
