Prestige London, part of Sodexo Prestige, has launched MV Harmony, the latest addition to Bateaux London's dining cruise fleet.
The Scandinavian-designed boat has journeyed from Copenhagen to London ahead of her maiden Thames voyage for a dinner cruise on 8 June.
The Harmony, like Bateaux London's other vessels the Symphony and the Naticia, will offer fine dining, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner cruises.
It can accommodate up to 200 guests seated, or 300 for a standing reception, and features a large open deck of more than 250 sq m.
James Greetham, managing director for Prestige London, said: "Bateaux London brought the thriving dining concept to the Thames exactly 20 years ago, and we are extremely excited to be expanding.
"We are proud to welcome our first guests on board the Harmony this summer, when London is showcasing its best for the Diamond Jubilee and the Games. Our team has worked very hard to offer you the best in entertainment, food and menu design, not to mention the friendliness of our staff and crew.'
