Looking back at London Boat Show

Princess celebrated the 60th anniversary of the London Boat Show with perhaps their most expansive stand ever, granting acres of space for clients, customers and friends of Princess to relax and savour the massive ten boat display in its usual prominent central position and enjoy personally accompanied viewings.

Debuting for the first time at London was the Princess V48 Open, sister ship of the V48 deck saloon that was launched last year and which is already proving a huge success. Living up to its name with a massive and Med friendly open cockpit beneath an open backed hard top with a huge electric vinyl sliding roof, the V48 Open offers the palatial luxury accommodation of the V48 down below. Where it differs is on the upper deck, where you’ll find a simply stunning amount of outdoor day space. Back aft, a fabulous sunpad completes the Med look, and there is even a dinghy garage beneath its soft weatherproof upholstery, easily capable of housing a JetRIB.

Also shown for the first time at London and proving every bit as popular as it did at its Southampton Boat Show launch, the Princess 43 ramped up interest still further by winning the ‘2014 Flybridge up to 55 feet’ category at the prestigious
Motor Boat Of The Year Awards held concurrently with the boat show.

Finally, the 88 Motor Yacht, also launched at Southampton, was very well received once again, continuing to impress all that entered its sumptuous interior or explored its expansive decks.

The upbeat mood of Southampton show was echoed by the London show, signalling the continued return of confidence and positivity throughout the marine industry, nowhere more so than at Princess, where strong interest during the nine days translated into steady business, both at and after the show.
