Best known for scoring the goals that helped to secure victory for England in the World Cup in 1966, Hurst will be opening the stand with Founder Robert Braithwaite CBE DL and CEO of Sunseeker International, Phil Popham.
Knighted in 1998 and inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2004, Hurst secured his 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.
Humphrey, an experienced 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 much of BBC Sport’s coverage for national and international events.
Hurst commented: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining Sunseeker to celebrate the opening of their stand at the London Boat Show in January. Sunseeker is an iconic British company flying the British flag on a global stage with some magnificent products, it will be a real pleasure to help them launch what promises to be a really exciting 2018 for the brand.”
The full display for the London Boat Show 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 52ft.
