Jacksonville Jaguars and Fulham F.C. owner Shahid Khan sailed through the Thames in his luxurious superyacht ‘Kismet’ ahead of a clash of NFL Titans.

His side plays Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium, London.

This comes after the 68-year-old billionaire, nicknamed the ‘Tash with the Cash’ withdrew his bid to buy the stadium for £600 million a week ago.

The lavish vessel sailed through Denton Wharf in Gravesend before mooring at Butlers Wharf on the Thames.

Khan is believed to have purchased the 308 foot-long yacht for an eye-watering £140 million.

Kismet, which means ‘fate’ or ‘destiny’, was last seen in London during March 2018. It was ordered in 2015 to replace another boat of the same name, also owned by Mr Khan.

Khan’s luxury yacht boasts six bedrooms that can accommodate 12 guests with a master room complete with its own private deck.

It also has a jacuzzi, sports bar, cinema and helipad as well as lounging and eating areas on three different decks.

As for the NFL, it is a mega clash of two heavyweights at Wembley on Sunday, October 28, 2018.

But, one thing is for sure is that ‘Tash with the Cash’ definitely knows how to make an extravagant entrance to the UK in luxury with Kismet.
