Renting a luxury yacht charter vessel for the London Olympic Games is easy. Securing a place to dock is a challenge, however.
Event organizers expect a scramble for berths. Dockage along the Thames river and canals is premium. Some of London’s waterways pass within 100 meters of the Olympic stadium at Stratford. Last minute space is unlikely to be available.
Some vessels like the 99 meter legendary Mediterranean yacht charter motor yacht CHRISTINA O have already arrived in London to stake out a berth, nearly five months in advance of the Games.
Back in May, 2011, we reported on berths being offered at the Royal Docks, adjacent to the ExCel Centre (the venue for Boxing, Wrestling, Fencing, Taekwondo, and Table Tennis). As of March 1, local authorities report less than half of the 50 premium superyacht berths remain available.
“One thing is certain.” says Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters and SailAway Yacht Charters. “For the month of August, 2012, London will be the luxury mega yacht charter capital of the world.”
The 2012 London Olympic Games take place from July 27 through August 12. For a list of available yachts and up-to-date dockage information, contact 1-800 Yacht Charters special events coordinators at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/
