Why Choose us?


All our boats are built in-house using traditional woodworking techniques. The boats look great just like our chauffeurs who wear a traditional uniform, so expect wax jackets, cricket jumpers, waistcoats & boat shoes.


All our boats feature raised seating which is angled to stop you from sliding down the seat. It also offers additional legroom. In addition, we offer cushions and blankets as standard.
