Take Your Wallet
Most of the visitors attend the show with the intention of purchasing a vessel from a seller, or researching potential vessels or sellers.

It’s Not Just Boats
If you’re not particularly fond of boating, no worries. The exhibitors that are in attendance aren’t all boat sellers and manufacturers. In fact, there’s a wide array of exhibitors that are primarily focused on all of the luxury recreational activities that you may be interested in – leisure travel, golf, equipment, diving, surfing and more.
Take A Dip In The Pool
One of the most favorite attractions at the show is the watersports pool, approximately 70 metres by 24 metres and overflowing with over 1,000,000 litres of water. Visitors can jump in for a myriad of experiences, including canoeing, paddle boarding and more. Aside from the average players, you’ll also find that the pool is filled with championship craftsmen and athletes, ready to show off their skills.
A great way to see all the latest sailboats and power boats, the Boardwalk offers a unique viewing opportunity. An indoor raised platform gives shoppers a way to view the available watercraft from every single angle. Outdoors, you’ll find a used boats marina, where you can either shop within a variety of budgets, or see what your own boat will go for on the market.
The London Boat Show is held at ExCel, one of the premiere conference and business venues in the capital. Not only is it located in a great location, giving you easy access to shopping, restaurants and nightlife, but you’ll also find that the venue itself offers up every luxury convenience you could ever need.
