London is top destination for superyachts this summer

Events Travel

London has been named the best place to visit in the world for the first time but it's not hard to see why. Hosting the Olympics Games and celebrating the Royal Jubilee this year, London has been voted the hottest destination of 2012. In preparation, Royal Docks 2012 is gearing up to welcome superyachts from all over the world in less than 3 months' time. Superyachts never before seen in London will be venturing to the UK capital this summer to be part of the 'greatest show on earth', the Olympic Games.

The league table, compiled by tourist feedback website TripAdvisor, is based on analysis of tens of millions of reviews by visitors to 440 destinations around the world. To help you make the most of everything London has to offer this year, Royal Docks 2012 are offering a limited number of exclusive superyacht berths to provide a totally unique Olympic experience. The facility is perfectly positioned just minutes from Central London, London City airport, and the city’s sporting venues. In partnership with MGMTyacht, Royal Docks 2012 will be providing a full dedicated bespoke concierge service too. Whatever you want, whenever you want, Royal Docks' concierge service has it covered. But hurry, due to large demand there are very few berths remaining and time is running out to book your spot.

Emma Shaw, TripAdvisor’s director, said: "The capital has been very much in the spotlight over the past few years, thanks to the royal wedding, Diamond Jubilee and, of course, the Olympics, and we’re seeing travelers experience London in an increasingly favourable way."

Mike Luddy, Managing Director of Royal Docks 2012, said: "For the first time in history, superyachts from all over the world will be heading to London this summer. Here at Royal Docks 2012 we'll be offering the best-positioned berths in London, 24 hour concierge and security services and a VIP lounge and parking for clients and their guests. What better way to experience the London Olympics, officially this summer's hottest ticket."

Mark Upton, Director of MGMTyacht said: "The results of this survey just confirm that London truly is the place to be for superyachts this summer. This really will be a once in a lifetime experience and I urge superyacht owners to act now and make sure they don't miss out."
