Straight from the Derelict London site ... many more examples available :
LIMEHOUSE BASIN - The £95-a-ticket boats to the Olympic Park.

The Olympic and Paralympic passenger boat service along the Lea was planned to evolve into a popular leisure business over the course of its 15-year contract. Water Chariots, which ran river transport to the Games but provoked fury with its prices went bust before London 2012 even finished.

Water Chariots boasted it would offer up to 120 return trips a day to the Olympic Park from its newly-renovated base at Limehouse Basin marina, south of the venue by the Thames, and from Tottenham Hale to the north, using a fleet of 15 specially-built vessels. One of these vessels named Usain Boat, had its name plate unveiled by Prince Charles. Water Chariots promised a luxury champagne service for £95 on its 29 boats and passengers would not have to queue to get into the Park. But passengers had to disembark and walk about a mile after barriers were placed across the canal for security reasons.

One of the (ex) Water Chariots, Chloe Jean is currently moored up at Limehouse Basin and has not been moved for nearly a year. Plans for it to be used as a pop up bar at the Hackney Wicked event on Fish Island was rejected by the authorities.
