Luxury Transportation: Air Harrods, the high-end private aviation program run by the world famous London luxury depot, is partnering with Watkins Yacht Management to provide air and concierge support via helicopter and corporate jet to the superyacht set. The two firms will provide a streamlined and ultra-stylish luxury travel experience for those embarking on a luxurious private ocean voyage. Transfers to the yachts will now start at the owner, charterer or guests own front door. The seamless incorporation of limousines, flights and/or helicopter transfers to and from the vessels will be overseen by Harrods highly-trained staff.
