Her upper deck will take 60 in comfort, and her full-sized galley enables the more complex menu’s to be prepared by our experienced Head Chef. Don’t miss the opportunity to hold an event on this lovely boat, whether it is a business meeting, conference, party, anniversary or wedding reception.

How long do you need?

We aim to be at your departure point 15 minutes before your departure time. Then, at the end of the charter, we aim to be back alongside 15 minutes before the end. For example, if you hire the Georgian for 3 hours from 1 pm till 4 pm, we will arrive at 12.45 pm to aid boarding. Then depart at 1 pm for your cruise returning at 3:45 pm to help disembarkation.

If you require time to decorate or set up for your event, you will need to build this into your event or hire that boat for the extra time required. Building on the above example, if you required an hour to set up, we would arrive at 11:45 so that you may set up before welcoming your guests onboard at 12:45 pm departing at 1 pm. This would then be a 4-hour hire.

Where can we depart form?

Our standard departure points include Maidenhead Riverside Gardens opposite Jenners Cafe and the Windsor Leisure Center’s wharf, in Windsor. Other departure points can be arranged at Ockly Court Hotel, Monkey Island Estate, and The Riverside Marque as long as you are holding part of your event with them.

Although destinations along the Thames do not take a long time to go between by road, the river can take much longer. That is why we generally stay between Windsor and Maidenhead. Departure from elsewhere will incur a relocation charge.
