One of the most visited stands at The London Boat Show, which is currently on at The Excel Centre, was the Robstep. Apart from the incredible areas selling yachts most of the stands were selling yachting accessories such as rope, winches, sails, portholes, toilets.
The one notable exception was Robstep (Stand E173) which a number of press articles declared to be one of the show highlights.
Everything was there that an aspiring James Bond could have wished for. Ranging from the Volantis "Junior" hovercraft, through to the one man mini-sub scooter, of course the Robstep Personal Transporters and the incredible Orcasub with a starting price of $1.8 million.
The press had a field day and the company's Press Day was attended by a myriad of trade press all of whom were super-impressed by range of exceptional and exciting products.
The Robstep Personal Transporter was a particular hit and everyone felt that it was ideal for yachts, being waterproof and one third of the weight of a Segway. That and being half of the price of the Segway made it particularly appealing.
One interesting point was that there was a lot of interest in the mini-sub scooter. It was surprising to hear from a number of disabled visitors who attended the show that they had previously been keen divers and they were excited by the fact that, despite their disabilities, the Mini-subs would allow them to continue with their diving.
The show will be continuing until the 12th of January and the company is delighted with the warm reception and excitement generated by their products.
