Two of the UK’s most luxurious yachts, the Princess 60 and Princess V58 Open, sailed down the Thames this week on their way to ExCeL London in preparation for the London Boat Show. Kicking off on Friday 8 January 2016, the prestigious Show is the first event of the year in the global boating calendar.

The exceptional Princess 60 and Princess V58 Open are amongst some of the biggest boats that will be seen at the London Boat Show in January and are hand crafted in Plymouth by one of the world’s largest shipyards, Princess Yachts.

Once the boats arrive at ExCeL London, a specially constructed crane, will lift the huge luxury motor yachts out of the water, before placing them on the back of lorries so that they can be driven into the Show hall. Over the coming days, a further 18 boats will arrive at the London Boat Show via the historic waterways of the Thames, past iconic landmarks, before being hoisted out of the water at the Royal Victoria Dock. Hundreds of boats will also arrive in the capital by road, bringing the total at the Show to almost 400.

The London Boat Show takes place from 8-17 January 2016 at ExCeL London. Buy tickets before the 8th January from £10, with two children 15 or under going free with each adult. To purchase tickets, and for further information, visit:www.londonboatshow.com.
