In the decade between 2007 and 2017 London changed fundamentally. This paper is about how the actions of the transnational über-wealthy - the ‘have yachts’ - impinged upon the life-worlds of the ‘merely wealthy’ - ‘the haves’. As we explore the conceptual utility of gentrification as a way of thinking about these seismic urban changes, we conclude that profound socio-spatial changes, and new intensities in the financialization of housing, neighborhood tensions and cultural dislocations are reshaping London as a plutocratic city and the lives of those who live there in historically unprecedented ways.
