Merlin Entertainments adds the Silver Barracuda to venues portfolio

Attractions operator Merlin Entertainments Group’s EDF Energy London Eye has purchased the Silver Barracuda vessel from Woods’ Silver Fleet.

The river cruiser is moored on the South Bank, adjacent to the London Eye, and will be used to host events independently or alongside nearby attractions the SEA LIFE London Aquarium and the London Eye.    

“Following on from recent investment into the business with our three-year capsule upgrade programme and launch of a new 4D experience, the EDF Energy London Eye continued its investment programme by purchasing the Silver Barracuda boat in February this year,” says Divisional Director of Merlin’s London attractions, David Sharpe. “We have already been running sightseeing cruise on the Silver Bonito since 2002, and this investment will allow us to increase our current offering, especially to corporate guests, in the run up to and during 2012.”  

The Silver Barracuda can accommodate up to 230 guests reception style or 140 seated for dinner.
