The ostentatious yacht is being rewrapped in gold vinyl in Canary Wharf to restore it to its “former glory”.

The wrapping is likely being done quickly before it hosts beauty and lifestyle influencers for London Fashion Week.

Wrapping with vinyl is a popular way for car and small boat lovers to glam up their vehicle’s appearance, as it is far cheaper and easier than paint.

Company LuxWrap has said the gilded hull on the super yacht is the “the world’s largest chrome wrap”.

Accommodating 12 guests across six staterooms, the sailboat boasts a large pool, a spa and a glass waterfall.

It also has a fully stocked hair salon so super-rich guests can always look their best.

The yacht also comes complete with a large Jacuzzi, sun loungers and even matching gold jet-skis.

But the yacht has not exactly proved a hit with locals.

One local said: “It’s grotesque. It just shows that some people have more money than sense.”

Another said: “This is all that is wrong with the world. You can’t buy class.”

They said: “I have to admit to being a little jealous.

“If I was a billionaire, I’d have a gold boat too.”
