The launch of Prindiville Marine’s Luxury Floating Apartments

Saint Katharine’s Dock, in the shadow of Tower Bridge, is one of the most exclusive moorings in London, and therefore a very appropriate venue for the launch of Prindiville Marine’s Luxury Floating Apartments.

The debut of Prindiville’s latest venture was in collaboration with the exclusive London on Water Yacht and Boat Show, and Saint Katharine’s Dock glittered with the throng of luxury boats for sale. And even in the presence of some of the biggest names in the elite yacht world, Prindiville Marine’s ‘Sheffield Keel’ wide beam barge became the party hub for the whole show.

One of the first guests to get a taste of what it’s like to live aboard a luxury floating apartment, was renowned actor and star of the Poirot series, David Suchet. Accompanied by his wife, Mr Suchet seemed impressed by what he saw and clearly understood the appeal of being able to live comfortably and stylishly in a home that you can, if you desire, move between moorings for a change of scenery.

Another guest – owner of a pair of Sunseeker powerboats, one based in Bournemouth, the other in Nice – was overwhelmed by the amount of space aboard Prindiville Marine’s Luxury Floating Apartment, commenting: ‘There’s about 20 people aboard right now and it doesn’t feel crowded at all.

“I’ve seen other houseboats for sale in London but none have felt so spacious or been so well appointed. You could live supremely well aboard the Prindiville boat and throw some great parties, too.”
