  Moored on the Thames close to the city's most famous landmarks, The Yacht London has earned its exclusive status as 'Mayfair of the river'. Crisp cosmopolitan design features expanses of brushed silver, whilst glass surroundings offer uninterrupted views across the water. The Yacht, originally the St Katharine, 130ft in length with a 26ft beam, was commissioned by the Port of London Authority in 1927 from Philip and Son Ltd of Dartmouth for the princely sum of £21,512. She was employed on survey and inspection work until the outbreak of war in 1939 when she was taken over by the Admiralty. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited the Yacht in 1949 and then again 10 years later. Sir Winston Churchill smoked one of his famous cigars of the stern of the top deck. In 1971 the St Katharine was sold to Robins (Marine) Ltd to be used as a floating restaurant and she has now been carefully restored in close consultation with English Heritage and PLA Archivists to bring her back to her former glory, retaining many original features of the Art Deco era with a twist of contemporary design.   With 4 separate event areas situated over 3 decks, The Yacht London is an all year round hospitality venue with a full wedding and civil ceremony licence. We specialise in Corporate Hospitality and Weddings whilst also catering for Private Dining, Seminars, Engagements, Product Launches, and any other party or celebration.  Boasting a 3am events licence we can accommodate parties of all sizes from 15 to 250 guests.   Each area can be hired individually or in conjunction with the other spaces to meet your requirements.  Or why not hire the whole yacht? We pride ourselves in our events service which is completely tailor-made to our client's needs. Our motto is:  "It’s your event!"   Whilst our event spaces are for private hire only, the restaurant is open to the public Tuesday through to Sunday.
