Stars flock to London venue for boat show

Jodie Kidd and X Factor finalist Rebecca Ferguson are among the names which are set to attend this year's 2011 Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show.

Kidd, who is known for her modelling work as well as her love of sports, opened the show today (January 7th) at London venue Excel, while Ferguson will be available to launch the new Sunseeker Predator 115 and Manhattan 73 super yachts.

National Boat Shows managing director Andrew Williams said: "The new-look 2011 Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show promises to be an action-packed ten days and Jodie, with her sporting credentials, along with our host of watersports professionals will provide a fitting opening."

Sports stars such as Olympic sailor Mark Covell and Around the World Yacht Race competitor Mike Golding will also be on hand to give advice to attendees.

This year's event features a used boats marina for the first time, where people considering selling their craft can showcase it to thousands of visitors.
