Fairline Boats were among the headline exhibitors at this year’s CWM FX London Boat Show, earlier this month.

The 61st annual show celebrating pioneers, adventurers and innovators was packed with global debuts of boats and products and the latest in marine innovation and attracted 92,288 visitors.

There were 400 exhibitors which included six marine businesses from Northamptonshire.

The event saw the long- awaited world launch of the Fairline Boats Shadow S.

Company commercial director Stuart McCullough said: “Fairline has enjoyed a successful show at London this year, with lots of enthusiasm for the brand.

“There has been a great atmosphere and a real buzz about the Fairline stand, with lots of buyers back in the market and a steady stream of orders taken throughout the show.

“We already have a strong order book for our new 53 models and have received lots of very positive feedback about our new-look stand and the display of our exciting new interiors.

“There has been a lot of excitement around the Shadow S model, which immediately leaves for Miami tonight where it will make its highly anticipated US debut.”

During the Show there was a royal visit from The Princess Royal and famous faces including Nicole Scherzinger, Sir Ben Ainslie and recently crowned Yachtsman of the Year winner Sir Robin Knox-Johnston. Paralympic gold medallist Helena Lucas joined former weather presenter Penny Tranter at The Datatag Lab whilst Michael Buerk, Nick Knowles and Rupert Grint were all spotted enjoying the show.

Title sponsors CWM FX welcomed players and management from Wigan Warriors and boxing icons Barry McGuigan, Carl Frampton and others from the CWM Cyclones.

The watersports pool saw 1,000 visitors get active on the water.
