Last week marked a new chapter for the London show scene, with the opening of the brand new Luxury yacht, Jet and Prestige Car Show, a major luxury lifestyle event spanning two iconic central London locations and the first of its kind in London. In addition to yachts, cars and jets, there is plenty to see for the connoisseurs of luxury fine living, with exhibitions ranging from bespoke furniture, jewellery, audio entertainment systems to high fashion and design.
For the first time in several years, the world’s leading superyacht and luxury yacht builders & brokers have been participating in the event and among the yacht builders were Abeking & Rasmussen, Amels, Azimut, Benetti, Blohm + Voss, CRN, Discovery, Ferretti, Fincantieri, Gunfleet, Holland Jachtbouw, Lürssen Yachts, Nautor’s Swan, Oyster, Princess, Sanlorenzo, Sunseeker, to name but a few…
The cars have certainly been a big hit with visitors with custom Range Rovers from Kahn Design flanking the red carpet entrance, and McLarens, Nobles and Aston Martins taking centre stage in the super car grid. Vesaro brought a Formula 1 simulator which was proving hugely popular.
The show also hosted a number of ‘fashion experiences’ with leading designers and exceptional talent and vision from the fashion industry.
Over at the second venue at St Katharine Docks, the show has been blessed with sunshine and perfect conditions for the in-water event and provided the perfect location for the luxury yachts and small craft on display. Complementing the yachts, a collection of luxury companies were showcasing at Marble Quay – an element to complement the in-water show.
The first edition of London Yacht, Jet and Prestige Car Show 2015 took place in Old Billingsgate and St Katharine Docks Wednesday 8th – Friday 10th April 2015.
