Organisers of the relaunched London Yacht Show have cancelled the first event that had been scheduled for next month.

Informa Exhibitions took over the former London On-Water Boat Show late last year, rebranding the boutique event as the London Yacht Show, as previously reported on

However, the organisers have now cited a slow take-up from some industry sectors, and luxury brands in particular, in their decision to postpone the first show until next year.

The yacht show was set to run from 8-12 May at St Katherine Docks, which hosted London On-Water from 2014 to 2018.

It is the second boat show in the UK’s capital to be cancelled this year, with January’s London Boat Show axed last summer by British Marine due to “insufficient support”.
