Follow superyachts in London during the Olympic Games
by Raphael Montigneaux
Social media has become a fantastic source of information. We recently reported on Permare's Twitter coverage of the construction of its Amer 92 motor yacht. And now we have spotted another interesting permutation - this time it is the London Port Authority reporting on the arrivals of superyachts in the British capital for the Olympic Games.
London has become quite the rendezvous for superyachts this summer, especially with the Olympic Games starting within the next week. The capital is well placed to play host to vessels of this size in places like Canary Wharf or along the Thames near Tower Bridge, and additional superyacht berths have been created especially for the period of the 2012 Games and beyond.
The London Port Authority tweeted the arrival of the 65m Benetti motor yacht Seanna a week ago, followed by the 36.6m motor yacht Sea Blue'Z from the same Italian yard, and on Wednesday the recently refitted 73.7m Amels motor yacht Ilona arrived at Canary Wharf. The 45.5m Feadship motor yacht Harle was also seen, and the 126m Lürssen motor yacht Octopus is arriving as I write these lines.
