A £25m SUPERYACHT docks on the Thames and is available for hire as an events space – with a hefty price tag.
The Oceandiva London is expected to arrive in August and will become the city’s largest floating venue.
The 86 meter superyacht will host all types of events including dinners, receptions and product launches and can accommodate up to 1,500 guests standing or 600 seated.
It doesn’t come cheap, with rental prices starting at £27,000 a night, according to the evening standard.
Guests can hop on and off the three-story ship at a variety of locations along the River Thames, including London Bridge, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf and Greenwich.
Oceandiva bosses claim the ship will be a carbon neutral venue powered by lithium battery packs backed by mounted solar panels.
Speaking at a press conference, Smart Group CEO Greg Lawson said: “Oceandiva is leading the events industry towards a net zero future.
“The project is the first of its kind in the world and where better to start than in the world-famous city of London.
“The journey began with the ambition to create a multi-purpose venue on the Thames, and having listened to stakeholders reflecting on and adapting to the challenges of the modern era, sustainability must be at the core of what we do.”
Artist impressions of the ship show a long ship in a dull gray color with a Union Jack flag on the upper deck.
In other boating news, an incredible new superyacht has been designed to be that widest in the world – with two helipads, five decks and a six-car garage.
When built, the ship will have two helipads perched on extendable platforms, each extending five meters to the side.
When extended, the 22m-wide boat becomes 33m wide, which designer Lazzarini claims will make it the world’s widest superyacht.
But while relaxing aboard a superyacht sounds heavenly, working on it is a very different experience.
The superyacht crew gave three reasons for this Working on board is the worst job ever.
