EXCLUSIVE USE, and available all year, this perfectly appointed self-catering 6-berth motor yacht moored near a choice of locations near Hampton Court Palace on the non-tidal River Thames, nearer Greater London.

Skippered boating holidays with a choice of itineraries can also be arranged between Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle for a further £100/hour (minimum 2 hours per day) 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 driving it themselves.

We went with 2 kids to celebrate dad's birthday and had an amazing time. Kids absolutely loved it and my husband enjoyed the different way of celebrating his birthday. The location is great and the boat itself is lovely. Highly recommend it!

We had a lovely time on the Thames - electric boat to the pub, great fun kayaking to Hampton Court but probably the highlight just sitting on the deck watching the chilled river world go by. Comfortable interior, everything you need and it seems everyone connected to the marina is so friendly. Recommended.

Absolutely amazing stay! Can't recommend it highly enough! Not only is it a tad away from the norm but absolute luxury with everything u could possibly need! Was so convenient to get to London but couldn't wait to get back to the boat! As for the bed....most comfortable I have ever slept in! If any of you guys want a different type of experience for your get away.....book it!!! Thanks so much. Will be back and recommending to friends and family.
