Use of tenders on Thames
–
–
–
–
All piers privately owned
Many very busy with commuter and sightseeing vessels
Freeboard c1.2m so not suitable for tenders
We will get some boarding arrangements – but not ad hoc
• River Lea
• Cable-car

Legacy
• We hope that with sufficient effort put in for
2012, that yachts will want (in modest
numbers) to visit in future years
• Thought should be given to keeping some of
the facilities & some management on a
permanent basis for future years
• This can only be good for the UK based
Superyacht industry
19
Yachts London
• We are offering (& encouraging) large yachts to come
to London
• Much experience and connections for planning and
problem solving
• Hands-on experience of operating Rum Jungle on the
Thames over many years for charter
• Providing a turn-key service to arrange all aspects
– Denholm Barwill
– Suppliers
– Concierge services
20
Decide Now
• Yachts’ programs are developed 12-18 months
in advance, so unless prospect of London &
UK in 2012 is taken on board now then
opportunity will be missed
• Equally, we would not expect any
infrastructure to be put in place on spec
– So only boats that are booked in early will end up
with facilities
– But facilities can be arranged for 100+ large
yachts
21
If there is ever a year to
bring a boat to the UK and
London, then 2012 is it
