Model, heiress and TV presenter Tamara Ecclestone will officially open the 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show at ExCeL London on Friday, 6 January. Tamara – star of the recent popular TV series “Billion Dollar Girl” and the face and body of Ultimo – will add all the glamour to the world-class event that would be expected of the model.
Murray Ellis, managing director of National Boat Shows said: “The 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show promises to be an action-packed 10 days and Tamara will make for a glamorous and high profile opening. The Show is the perfect start to the season and returns this year with around 1000 boats, more than 500 exhibitors, new technology and a variety of innovative products. It’s an ideal chance for the family to get together, have a go at a watersport activity, learn a new skill or dream about your new boat, making it an unmissable day out.”
The 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show will feature boats of all shapes and sizes to climb aboard or gaze at, from entry-level wakeboards costing as little as £100, to glamorous and glitzy multi-million pound sailing and motor yachts like those from Princess, Oyster, Sunseeker and Jeanneau. There will also be a fantastic range of shopping brands where visitors can find the best in marine and casual fashion clothing, books, DVDs and a multitude of gadgets, some being launched for the first time.
The Show also brings many of the world’s sailing stars together under one roof. The Clarks’ Knowledge Box is the place to see, hear and learn from the experts of the boating world, including British ocean adventurer Adam Priddy and three-time Olympic Gold medallist Ben Ainslie. Other watersports’ greats include British National Freestyle Jet Ski Champion Jack Moule performing exciting displays outside on the dock and team GBR canoe champions Lizzie Neave and Huw Sweetnam sharing experiences on the Going for Gold attraction. Visitors will also be able to view eight ‘Olympic class’ boats within the attraction, and Ben Ainslie’s class of boat as soon as they enter the Show.
Adult tickets can be purchased in advance of the Show from just £16, with two children going free (aged 15 or under) with each paying adult. Concessions also available.
Enjoy even more luxury and glamour at this year’s Show with the addition of the complementary new Luxury Lifestyle and Supercar Showcase, nestled amongst the glitzy yachts in the South Hall.
