London Boat Show preview pictures of yachts at ExCeL

Sitting comfortably...some of the expensive vessels that will be on show have arrived and moored up in Newham’s docks.

Our photographer Steve Poston got an exclusive glimpse of them on his travels today.

TV personality Tamara Ecclestone will officially open this year’s 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show.

The model and daughter of F1 supremo Bernie, who recently starred in a Channel 5 reality series, will appear at the ExCeL centre tomorrow.

The show will feature boats of all shapes and sizes to climb aboard or look at, from multi-million pound sailing and motor yachts to entry-level wakeboards.

Olympic gold-medallist Ben Ainslie and British National freestyle jet-ski champion Jack Moule will also put in appearances during the event.

Murray Ellis, managing director of National Boat Shows said: “The 2012 Tullett Prebon London Boat Show promises to be an action-packed 10 days and Tamara will make for a glamorous opening.
