Classic Boat sales

Traditional

Specialising in traditional river boats we will do our best to find the ideal craft to suit your individual needs. 25 years experience of operating and selling boats on the river Thames enables us to offer expert objective advice to prospective owners on all aspects of boat ownership including purchase, surveys, repairs and moorings.

We have a current selection of boats that can be viewed in our online catalogue. All the boats featured have been personally inspected by a member of our sales team. Please contact us if you cannot find a boat to suit your particular requirements in our current selection, as our expertise lies in finding boats to match the individual requirements of each prospective buyer.

Contemporary

We also work with a range of contemporary classics which combine the advantages of low maintenance GRP hulls whilst maintaining the styling of a true classic. The latest additions is the 16ft English Harbour Yacht, an open boat born of frustration at the demise of the English launch for river estuary or sea. We have just commissioned the first electric version and it has turned heads at Henley Royal Regatta as well as the Southampton Boat Show.

For something slightly more quirky and versatile we have introduced the Bahama range from the west coast of France. The Bahama launch is a Gallic twist on the American utility launch of the thirties which features a stylish and efficient hull ideal for use on the river or the sea, easy to tow. Imagine having one boat with two engines, a silent electric Torqueedo for the river and a 90h.p engine for waterskiing on the coast in summer. Call us to try “Ketchup” – our very own Bahama 20.

Closer to home and equally attractive are the Roamer and Venturer, pretty Dutch style clinker launches made to order in East Anglia. Each boat is finished to your specification as a six or eight seater respectively with a canopy or pramhood. There are several around Henley which the owners are happy to make available for viewing.
