It seems like just yesterday, we were glued to our televisions, watching 15,000 Chinese performers on the field of the "Bird’s Nest," as China kicked off the Opening Ceremony for the 2008 Olympic games.
Yet here we are, just one year to go before the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic games.
Suddenly, the notion of renting a yacht for the London games isn’t something to think about down the road. Marina reservations are well under way, and additional berths have been added to accommodate the expected visitors arriving by superyacht.
"We are very excited to see such levels of interest from yachts so far," says Mark Upton, Director of MGMT. "We were always confident yachts would book for the Olympics but expected this to happen later in the year once the summer charter season ended. We have made a huge effort to keep the industry informed of our concierge services and also the fact that the popular tickets, hospitality, and services will sell out very quickly. It seems our efforts are paying off and the bookings are being made early to ensure visiting yachts receive the full benefit of all the services available."
"One thing is certain." says Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters. "For the month of August, 2012, London will be the luxury mega yacht charter capital of the world. Based on the early inquiries we have received, we estimate at least 30 superyachts will be in London and on the Thames for the Olympics next summer."
