Those attending the show will be one of the first to set foot on board the new Oyster 495, making its world premiere at London Luxury Afloat. Visitors will also be privy to the first public appearance of the new Oyster 595 (Oyster’s fastest selling yacht in their history) alongside the stunning Oyster 885 Clare and the award-winning Oyster 565.

Away from Oyster, Hallberg-Rassy, the internationally known and loved brand for producing high quality blue water sailing yachts, will be showcasing the brand-new Hallberg-Rassy 57.

Alongside these sailing yachts there will also be a whole range of prestigious motor yachts from leading brands including Sunseeker, Fairline, Pearl Yachts, Azimut, Falcon and Ryck.

Two of the most interesting motor yachts at the show, aim to bridge the gap between performance and ocean preservation while using sustainably sourced materials. Falcon will be showcasing ‘Miss Wonderly’, a fully custom 10.6m self-charging, plug-in hybrid limousine yacht tender.

While guests looking for a more unique residential experience should check out Float8’s ‘Float1’ which boasts two double bedrooms, a shower room, galley kitchen, open plan living and dining area, and front and rear decks, with a roof deck as one of its most appealing features.
