Sunseeker International has announced English World Cup legend Sir Geoff Hurst and BT Sport’s presenter Jake Humphrey will be the company’s special guests at the London Boat Show.
Hurst, best known for scoring the goals that helped to secure victory for England in the World Cup in 1966, will be opening the company’s booth Jan. 10 with founder Robert Braithwaite CBE DL and CEO of Sunseeker International, Phil Popham.
Hurst secured his unique place in sporting history when he became the first and only player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final, a record that has stood for over 50 years.
Knighted in 1998 and inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2004, Hurst holds a special place in the hearts of football fans and has become an iconic sporting figure across the world.
Humphrey, a TV and radio broadcaster, will be Sunseeker’s official compère for the midday event. Currently the face of Premier League Football on BT Sport, Humphrey has been at the forefront of BBC Sport’s coverage for many national and international events.
“I am absolutely delighted to be joining Sunseeker to celebrate the opening of their stand at the London Boat Show in January,” Hurst said. “It will be a real pleasure to help them launch what promises to be a really exciting 2018 for the brand.”
Sunseeker’s full display for the London Boat Show 2018 includes two show debuts, the 76 Yacht and the Predator 57 MKII. The 76 Yacht will also be the largest model displayed at the show, and will appear alongside a collection of luxury yachts starting from 52 feet.
