January 02, 2013, 10:06 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Tullet Predbon London Boat Show is back and it is bigger and better than ever. This 500-exhibitor strong event spans eight days and incorporates all manner of water-based crafts from kayaks and canoes to giant 37-metre long motor cruisers. Basically, if it floats, you'll find it at the Tullet Predbon London Boat Show.
One of the highlights of this year's event is sure to be the Action Pool. Here visitors can try their hand at wakeboarding, windsurfing or kayaking and see a new side to water-based sports.
Other displays include historic vessels and tall ships, carbon-fibre canoes and super-fast sailing dinghies and some of the largest exhibitor boats in production found at the Royal Victoria Dock.
Aside from having fun, the Tullet Predbon London Boat Show is also a great place to learn new skills. There will be an anchor watch masterclass and boating for beginners areas and the chance to learn more about new and existing boats.
As an added bonus, if visitors attend the show between 17 and 20 January a special deal offering five shows for the price of one is available. The other shows on offer include: The Luxury Brand Show, The London Bike and Outdoors and Active Travel Shows.
