October 2020

Celebrated my 40th birthday on Paul’s beautiful yacht. It was an amazing experience, and everything was perfect! The luxury and space on the yacht exceeded my expectations, she is simply gorgeous. I highly recommend a stay; you will not regret it!

We stayed on the boat in St Katharine’s Dock, which is an amazing base both for exploring London or staying local and enjoying some of the lovely restaurants and breakfast places. The boat itself is incredible – really well designed and spacious, with great attention to detail, and delivering the full luxury experience you would hope for. Paul was a great host – very responsive to any requests, and with great local knowledge. All in all a truly wonderful experience, and one we are keen to repeat when the next occasion arises!
