The organizers of last year's St Katharine Docks On-Water Exhibition have announced that they are planning an event this year, on May 4-7, that will be double the size of last year's, renamed as "The London On-Water Yacht and Boat Show."
The event will showcase the offerings of the UK's top shipyards, with new boats afloat in St Katharine's Central Basin and a wide range of high-quality brokerage boats in the adjoining West Basin. An exhibition of luxury tenders and ribs will be ashore on Marble Quay. Surrounding the dockside is a wide range of restaurants and bars, which overlook the yachts, with the organizers hoping to create a festival-like atmosphere.
Event Director Peter Bryant said: "Last year's show received such a lot of positive attention that it became clear that the St Katharine Docks On-Water Exhibition could be opened up to an even wider audience as a stand-alone show. Our London Yacht, Jet, and Prestige Car show, at nearby Old Billingsgate, continues to grow and complimentary transportation for all visitors will be provided between the two locations during the three days of May 4-6, 2016, when both shows are open; the London On-Water Show will also be open on May 7 at St Katharine Docks."
"While there is a commonality of audiences interested in buying luxury products and thus visiting both of our shows, we felt that exhibitors and visitors required separate and dedicated marketing and messaging."
Shipyards that have already confirmed their attendance include Sunseeker, Princess, Fairline, Gunfleet, and Spirit.
