Thames Bank – electric punt

Traditional electrified punt

A rare opportunity to acquire a very unusual Thames classic punt.  Punts were hugely popular in Victorian times when people donned their summer best and boarded a train for a day on the river anywhere between Richmond and Oxford with Henley and Maidenhead particularly popular.  There is something sybaritic about lazing on a punt.  The Chauffeurs’ punt has luxurious velvet cushions and adds a table for long liquid lunches or even overnight camping, thanks to a pair of pram hoods and side curtains with windows.  A side leather covered wheel steers the hidden electric pod motor in the stern.  When not in use, the punt is fully protected from the sun and rain by a set of folding covers.  For more information please call the office.
