Imagine arriving at one of Britain’s best restaurants on “your own” boat, having a wonderful meal and then gently cruising away for a memorable night on board. Or picture yourself sipping cocktails in a refined saloon aloft a beautiful open deck as the river slips by.
A holiday charter on “New Venture” or “Jacqueline” is the perfect opportunity to slow down to river pace, ideal for honeymooners, anniversaries, or a luxury break away from the hustle of modern life with room for two couples or a family. One option is to take a gastronomic cruise, enjoying the many high quality restaurants along the river’s banks including the Waterside Inn in Bray, French Horn in Sonning and The Leatherne Bottle, Goring, to name but a few.
If self drive is not for you then guests can let responsibilities fall away as an experienced skipper navigates the byways of the river for them, before mooring in a quiet spot and departing for the evening allowing guests to indulge in a relaxed or romantic night on board.
In addition an on board chef can create an impressive meal in the fully fitted galley which can be enjoyed with friends on the spacious flying bridge or in the saloon. Flexible and adaptable options for enjoying this wonderful river are endless, with charters available from two nights to a week or more.
More independent or contemporary travellers may wish to consider a self drive holiday charter on board Linssen Yacht “Jacqueline”. A contemporary classic designed for smooth handling, comfort and durability with timeless and universal appeal. If you think you might enjoy boat ownership but are uncertain then taking a boat for a few days should be enough to convince you either way. Nor will we “throw you in the deep end” as our in-house skipper, Toby, will show you the ropes before you depart on your swallows and amazons style adventure (although with luxury shower and beds on board!).
