Well that is the 2017 London Boat Show over with for another year! It was an excellent show for Nisos Yacht Charter! The stand was exceptionally busy for most of the ten days and many new bookings from repeat and new clients taken.
It was great to catch up with so many friends of Nisos, clients and boat owners.
This year saw the first (of many I hope) go karting grand prix competitions, involving many of the Nisos team and a couple of welsh boys from Network South Wales Jeanneau dealers. It was a great night out, and I am happy to report that it was a 1,2,3 on the podium for Nisos, despite Jamie (Network) having a faster kart...thank you to Simon for arranging!
Of course, just in case you had missed it (!), we were also awarded the 2017 Customer Service Award by the British Marine Leisure Association which was a great achievement for everyone involved in the Nisos organisation.
A huge thank you from myself, Laurie and Kate to all who helped out - you know who you all are!

Geoff and Fran
Richard and Di
Bob and Anja from De Blanc Wine bar in Nidri
Paddy and Lucy
Helen (for delivering chairs, wine, salami and cheese from Lefkas)
Elizabeth (Lefkas transfers)
Zac and Petros
My wife, Carolyn, for dealing with the 3 kids and working whilst the show is on!
I really hope I haven't missed anyone off the list....!
Also a big thank you to the British Marine Federation for putting on the show and Sarah Hayes from the Leisure Association for all her support - and best wishes in her new job.
The stand design has gone from strength to strength and it is all made possible with the superb services of Helen Harrison and her team at AIM Exhibitions. If you are looking for a cost effective exhibition stand - look them up, they are brilliant!
So, that is all for now - hopefully we will see you at the Windermere Boat Show in May (12-14) and of course the Southampton Boat Show in September.
Now it is case of unloading the car, doing the washing and following up on all the leads and processing of bookings!
Thank you all!
Rowan, Laurie and Kate
