Wanna take to sea?

with 2 comments

For the first time I attended an International boat show at the Excel centre London.

Organised by the Tullett Prebon, the show featured power and sail boats, dinghies, engines, electronics, deck equipment, charter holidays and sailing courses.

I was actually on board some of them.

What fascinated me most was the predator 108 special edition. It was one of the major boats launched at the occasion.

According to the boat company Sunseeker, it was built in a stunning custom metalic gold colour and boasts a sports flybridge deck with helm position, a highly costomised aft cockpit layout with wicker effect and built in seating and wetbar area, including a spacious foredeck with spa tub and built in sunlonger.

In short predator 108 is a ‘little paradise’ on its own.

The performance by the band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Collingwood at the launch of the Predator 108 was equally fascinating.

Although there were boats and other deck equipments that could be purchased with few thousands of pounds, I left the show with the believe that it was organised for the high and mighty in the society with extra pounds stashed away in the banks.

Let me leave you with some of the pictures I took, they may inspire you to take to sea.
