Classic 6-berth yacht near Hampton Court Palace with all the mod cons. Skippered boating holidays + cruises can also be arranged.

EXCLUSIVE USE, and available all year, this perfectly appointed self-catering 6-berth motor yacht near Hampton Court Palace located on the non-tidal River Thames.

This is a very beautiful and cleverly laid out classic French motor yacht with a really rich heritage.  She has 3 cabins/bedrooms (all with en-suite toilets/heads and shower/washrooms providing hot water), 2 separate living areas (dining and saloon/lounge), galley/kitchen, the bow/front deck and flybridge/upper deck both provide sun loungers plus there is an aft/rear deck with gas BBQ and outside dining area, perfect for al fresco dining.

Facilities include heating throughout, a fully equipped galley (4-plate induction hob, dishwasher, large fridge, separate freezer, combination oven/microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee machine - all powered by either shore power/electricity or generator dependent on mooring preferences).  Smart TVs, Netflix, PS3s, WiFi, HiFi, bluetooth sound system, surround sound, Alexa, Spotify, Readly, books, board games, tea/coffee, bed linen and towels are also provided.

Specialising in the areas between Kingston and Hampton Court, skippered boating holidays can also be arranged with a choice of itineraries through to Windsor with an experienced Captain, enabling guests (whether a couple, family or small group of friends) to relax and enjoy the stunning river views from the luxury of a private boat without the stress of having to drive it themselves (minimum 2 nights and dependent on river conditions, especially in the low season) – please enquire for a quote.

Furthermore, tailor made cruises for up to 10 guests can also be arranged.  Prices start at £200 for the first 2 hours, then £80/hour thereafter.

There are also a choice of self-drive petrol motor boats for hire at an extra cost of between £35-£75 per half day, a fun and easy way to explore the river with no experience necessary – it is advisable to pre-book to avoid disappointment!  Pedalos and SUPs/stand-up paddle boards are included in the price – all are subject to availability and at your own risk.

Enjoy the plenty of places of interest to visit in the area including historic monuments, market towns, museums, racecourses and theme parks - and if cooking is not on the agenda, why not moor up and try one of the many delightful riverside restaurants or gastro pubs for a meal or two! 

Trains to Central London take approximately 35/45 minutes should guests wish to sample the many tourist attractions in Central London too.  Parking can be arranged from £5 per day.  Heathrow is approximately 6/10 miles away.

Whether a moored stay or skippered cruise is chosen, enjoy the stunning surroundings from the comfort of a well-equipped “Riverscapes” boat.  The crew pride themselves on offering a very unique and personalised service.  PLEASE NOTE....... THIS ADVERTISED BOAT IS NOT A SELF-DRIVE!
