What we do

What your clients say

I just wanted to say that my wife and I had a wonderful time on Tuesday. The boat and the river were just as expected. I should also say that Laurence did an excellent job as skipper. He has mastered the art of both being there to answer questions and the next minute becoming invisible. I am sure we will be back.
Mr Elkington, July 2011
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, December 2012

New shop

We now have a high street presence. Our shop Boatique, at 6 Hart 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.
