The London Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show returns to the capital in May 2016. Joining forces with Prestige London and London on Water, the show brings together three events at two historic venues, showcasing luxury items ranging from superyachts to prestige cars, private jets, prime real estate, art, interiors, jewellery and more
Prestige London, running 4-6 May at Old Billingsgate, showcases London’s premier luxury goods and services, while London On-Water, running 4-7 May, is an exclusive on-water yacht and boat show taking place at St Katharine Docks.
London is arguably one of the most important international market for superyacht and luxury yacht builders, being home to more than twice as many billionaires and millionaires than any other city in the world, so it’s no surprise that more than 120 exhibitors and 6,000 visitors attended the first London Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show in April 2015.

One of the most eagerly awaited features of the event will undoubtedly be the supercar and prestige car grid. The event will present several superb cars and specialist car dealers, including McClaren, Noble, Tesla Mansory and for the first time Ferrari and Lamborghini. Look out for the ultra-exclusive Ferrari LaFerrari, the fastest road-going car ever built by the famous Italian brand.
The world’s top private jet and helicopter dealers and charter agents are also exhibiting at Old Billingsgate. Leading names such as NetJets, Xclusive Jet and Sikorsky helicopters will be on hand to discuss your airborne travel requirements.
Design, fine art and interiors
As well as yachts, jets and cars, Prestige London also features the best names in interior design, luxury furnishings, fine art, exclusive audio visual technology, watches, jewellery, fashion and more. Experts from Harrods Estates will be able to advise you where and when to invest in the London property market, and event sponsors Ulysse Nardin and Senturion will present highly sought after collectors items.
The London Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show also caters for networkers, with a VIP sponsor lounge, private meeting and function rooms. Champagne, seafood and sushi bars overlooking the River Thames at Old Billingsgate also provide the opportunity to meet clients and friends. Designer fashion shows will add even more to this unique occasion, with three evenings of fashion shows planned in association with Fashion TV.
One of the major attractions of this event is the participation of many of the world’s top super yacht builders: Nobiskrug, Lürssen, Blohm + Voss, Amels, Abeking and Rasmussen, Azimut Benetti, Pendennis Shipyards, Sunrise Yachts, Princess, Sunskeeker London, Westport Yachts, Spirit Yachts, Fincantieri, plus many more. Some will be exclusively showing visitors the latest yachts launched and a wide variety of designs of the future.
The Superyacht Owner’s Summit
In partnership with The Superyacht Group, a series of talks on luxury asset acquisition, focusing on air, land and sea, will be held from 4-6 May at Old Billingsgate. Created for superyacht owners and high-net-worth individuals, the seminars will be hosted by The Superyacht Owner and Superyacht Buyer, and organised by Superyacht Events. The summit will take place over three consecutive mornings, focusing on the problems and pitfalls of owning, buying and managing luxury assets. Each day will concentrate on a specific commodity – private jets, property and superyachts – with the chance to engage with leading panelists from the luxury industry during daily Q&A sessions.

The London On-Water show (4-7 May 2016) will present the UK’s leading marques of luxury sail and power boats, premiering new boats for 2016 such as the Glider SS18 and the Discovery 58. Britain’s major luxury yachting brands such as Sunseeker, Princess, Fairline and Spirit Yachts will all be displaying yachts. Located just a short walk from Old Billingsgate at St Katharine Docks, next to Tower Bridge, this event is rapidly developing its place on the calendar as London’s largest and most prestigious On-Water Yacht & Boat Show.
