“We are delighted to be returning to the heart of the capital for London Luxury Afloat following the success of the inaugural show in 2022,” says Ashley Highfield, CEO, Oyster Yachts. “It was a wonderful event and St Katharine Docks provided the perfect backdrop for the launch of our luxury 50-foot bluewater cruiser, the Oyster 495, winner of the European Yacht of the Year. We are still confirming our final line up for the 2023 show, but visitors can rest assured we will be showcasing a number of stunning Oysters, as we celebrate our 50-year anniversary.”
"We were excited to be a part of the inaugural London Luxury Afloat display in St. Katharine Docks last year and are pleased to confirm that we will be returning in 2023 with three luxury Sunseeker models,” commented Christopher Head, Sunseeker London, Group Sales Director. “These yachts showcase the very best in design and innovation from our in-house teams and each model offers a unique proposition across the size and product ranges we have on offer. Our team look forward to warmly welcoming all visitors on board and enjoying a successful show”.
Speaking about the upcoming show, Lesley Robinson, CEO, British Marine added: “We received incredible feedback from visitors and exhibitors following the inaugural event last year indicating that there was a clear appetite for this kind of show in London and this year’s show promises to be another stunning event. We have already added an additional day and will be adding to the incredible line-up of yachts that we saw in 2022. It is not only a unique day out, but it also provides the perfect opportunity for anyone serious about purchasing one of these luxury craft the chance to view different models side by side, as well as soaking up the atmosphere of the show.
To complement the impressive line-up of yachts on display, there will be a selection of shoreside exhibitors featuring smaller craft and complimentary products and services. Ticket holders can also take advantage of exclusive waterside hospitality, where they can sit back and relax with a glass of champagne on the floating bar and lounge area, whilst contemplating just which yacht is the yacht for them.
Nestled on the north bank of the River Thames, within close proximity of many of London’s most famous tourist attractions including the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, St. Katharine Docks is central London’s only marina and provides the perfect backdrop to London Luxury Afloat. With a vast array of bars and restaurants visitors can enjoy a full day out and really make the most of their visit.
IGY Marinas Marketing Director of Europe, Debbie Parsons-Randle, commented: “We are delighted to have London Luxury Afloat returning to St Katharine Docks, an IGY Destination for 2023. It is a privilege to be working with British Marine as the host marina for this showcase event, which brings some of the most luxurious sail and motor yachts on the market to the heart of London. St Katharine’s is so much more than a marina and events such as this really showcase what the marina team can achieve in partnership with large event organisers and stakeholders.”
