Sixty years and still counting. The London Boat Show is one of those boat shows that no cruising sailor should miss if you are anywhere close enough to get there, 4-12 January, Excel, London.

The organisers tell us that this year’s London Boat Show is shaping up nicely with 63 debut launches (and more in the pipeline). ALL NEW to the UK is the Spitfire 18 and the Bavaria Cruiser 37 as well as brands making a welcome return including Volvo, Honda and Jeanneau. Plus Sir Ben Ainslie will be at the Show on January 8th with his J.P. Morgan BAR AC 45. His boat will be there every day.



Serious about sailing?

Unique learning experiences such as traditional wooden boat building techniques through to choosing the right sail cloth and joining a club.

Cruising yachts, racing dinghies, multihulls and trailer sailors along with specialist advice all in one place, guarantees the Show has something not just for you but for all your family and sailing friends.



Passionate about power?

Bowthrusters, dieseljets, Z-drives, hydraulic steering, modular cockpits and resin infused hulls are just some of the powerboating and motoryachting specifications that you can find at the Show. If you are looking to upgrade your boat or make that first time purchase there will be hundreds of new boat models with innovative designs and the latest technologies on display.



And if renovation or restoration is what you have in mind, then the Show has experts in every field of the industry to guide you each step of the way.
