Oyster Yachts will be one of the star attractions at London Luxury Afloat, taking place at St. Katharine Docks from 21-24 April.
The historic setting of St. Katharine Docks, alongside Tower Bridge, offers the perfect location for Oyster to showcase its new Oyster 495, alongside Oyster’s acclaimed 565, 595 and 885 models.
Richard Hadida, CEO and Owner of Oyster commented: “We are delighted to be back in the heart of London at St. Katharine Docks. It’s a very special venue for Oyster Yachts, and the perfect location to be launching the new Oyster 495, our luxury 50-foot bluewater cruiser. Kicking-off our 495 World Premiere at the London Luxury Afloat Show, a premiere that visits cities across Europe and the US, is an honour, and even better knowing we’re in such good company.”
Oyster Yachts will be hosting a number of special events during London Luxury Afloat, which includes the world premiere of the 495, Oyster Brokerage’s showcase of the stunning Oyster 885 Clare, the first public appearance of the new Oyster 595, as well as the opportunity to see the award-winning 565 – a unique opportunity to see all four Oyster yachts in one location.
After the show, the brand-new Oyster 495 will depart on the first leg of its World Premiere tour, providing the opportunity for media and Oyster invited guests to sail onboard this new model, which has already been heralded as setting a new bluewater benchmark and is anticipated as a game changer for luxury, custom built cruising yachts.
Departing from London, the Oyster 495 will set off on her maiden voyage to Oslo, and then to Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Southampton, Barcelona, Cannes, Palma, Miami and then Sydney.
London Luxury Afloat is part of British Marine, which organises the highly successful Southampton Boat Show. St. Katharine Docks is Central London’s only marina and is located approximately 40 nautical miles up the Thames River, adjacent to the Tower of London.
With many of London’s most famous tourist attractions within close proximity and having evolved into a thriving waterside community, St. Katharine Docks appeals to a diverse range of companies, affluent travellers and yacht owners. Londoners and visitors alike and the timing and location provides the perfect launch for the Oyster 495 alongside its larger range of Oyster models.
