The Wellesley, London’s finest boutique-grand hotel in Knightsbridge, presents you 6 suites onboard the 56m superyacht, The Wellesley yacht. Mirroring the hotel’s art-deco design, and set against a constantly changing backdrop, guests are invited to experience the same exceptional personal service, fine dining and attention to detail that has become synonymous with the hotel, on board a private superyacht.

The Wellesley superyacht was originally built in the Netherlands by Oceanco in 1993, and underwent a comprehensive rebuild / refit by Sunrise Yachts in 2016. Interior designer Dennis Irvine, of Dennis Irvine Studios, was also responsible for the 1920s glamour that epitomises the hotel. The Wellesley yacht boasts some of the largest open deck spaces of any 56m on the water - ideal for entertaining family and friends, or hosting corporate events in utter privacy. The ultimate yacht for discerning charterers.
