AN Ipswich company is celebrating today after selling a host of boats at a top London show.

Haven Marina based Peters PLC returned from the London Boat Show with a full order book of boats sold at the event.

David Linder, sales manger at the Ipswich office, said: "This show has really confirmed our position as the number one boat sales company on the east coat.

"We sold 22 of the Bavaria and Legend sailing yachts and five of the Rodman sports fishing boats."

It was the first time the sales team from Ipswich had attended the show and as a result of the success they will now exhibit at the National Boat, Caravan and Outdoor Leisure Show in Birmingham from February 16 to 24.
