For the very first time at the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show, the Show’s organisers are set to bring visitors an amazing, once in a lifetime possibility to scale the rigging from 18th Century, 115´ HMS Victory ship. The fully rigged section of mast carrying the fore topgallant yardarm of Nelson’s flagship will tower above the Show as the centrepiece of the famous Classic Boat attraction in partnership with Teamac Marine Paints.
Usually found 150 feet above the deck, this impressive attraction will allow visitors to climb up the rigging to truly experience what it is like to be aloft on an 18th century Man O’War under the watchful supervision of the National Museum of the Royal Navy at Portsmouth.
Everyone can take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn about the history of this famous vessel and watch live demonstrations about the use of several remarkable artefacts which have been extracted from the ship while under refit in Portsmouth’s naval dockyard.
To add to the flavour of this genuine article from HMS Victory, as well as bringing and rigging this iconic ship’s yardarms, sailors from the National Museum of the Royal Navy at Portsmouth will be providing visitors with the opportunity to explore a reconstructed traditional boatyard’s workshop.
From 6 – 15 January 2012, London’s biggest and best-loved boating experience, the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show, returns to ExCeL London giving visitors the chance to see the first glimpse of the newest yachts being unveiled to the World.
