What we do

What our clients say

Just to say that we had a lovely time aboard Lisbeth on Monday. The weather was good and our crew were excellent. It was a perfect way to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary.
Meg Blunsdon - July 2014
The staff said it was their best ever event, ever, ever.
Alex Templer - July 2014
Gillian we had a perfect day. Thank you so much to you and your lovely staff.
Sarah and all at Impetus - July 2014
We had a fabulous afternoon, just perfect! Thank you for all your help.
Mrs Buston - June 2014
I knew the moment we stepped aboard New Venture that I was smitten. Our week on her last summer was unanimously voted our “best ever” family holiday, winning out over Disney World and some other formidable contenders. It was so peaceful and even the children embraced that.
Mr Christensen - July 2012

New shop

We now have a high street presence. Our shop Boatique, at 5 Friday Street, just a short stroll from the river Thames, is a true nautical emporium where the curious shopper will find all manner of clothing and objets d’art presented within a gallery setting.
