A SUPERYACHT worth £25m is docking on the Thames and can be hired out as an events space – with a hefty price tag.
The Oceandiva London is due to arrive in August. This venue is expected become the city’s largest floating venue.
The superyacht measures 86 metres and can host a variety of events including receptions and product launches. It can accommodate up to 1,500 guests standing or 600 seated.
It doesn’t come cheap through, as hire rates start from a basic £27,000 a night, according to the Evening Standard.
Guests have the option to hop on and off the three-decker ship from various locations along Thames including Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Greenwich, Canary Wharf, and Canary Wharf.
Oceandiva bosses claim that the ship is CO2-neutral and will be powered using lithium batteries backed up with mounted solar panels.
Greg Lawson, CEO Smart Group, said at a press conference: “Oceandiva leads the way to a net Zero future for the events sector.”
“The project is unique in its kind and it was launched by London, a world-leading city.
“The journey started with an ambition to create a multi-purpose event venue on the Thames, and after listening to stakeholders reflecting and adapting to the challenges of the modern era, sustainability needs to be at the core of everything that we do.”
