This elegant river launch design features a full mahogany fit out including varnished decks, comfortable lloyd loom chairs and an excellent full length and canopy on a bespoke wooden frame with drop down transparent sides to give shelter whatever the weather.
Electric propulsion suits this style of hull perfectly as it is an easily driven low wash design which respects the river bank as well as the flora and fauna which appreciate the silent cruising as you glide through the water paying due respect to passing kingfishers and other river residents.
With seating for 8 in comfort Sapphire Rose is the perfect boat on which to sip a glass of chilled champagne with your nearest and dearest while enjoying the beauty of the unspoilt reach of the Thames between Goring/Streatley and Wallingford. The Beetle and Wedge would be happy to provide a picnic for you to enjoy should you wish to go boating for a couple of hours or more.
The helm is a typical car style steering wheel on a pedestal to port as one would have expected to find in a 1930s vehicle. Guests sit mainly astern of the skipper leaving plenty of room for a table in the bow on which to place your picnic basket and champagne bucket.
Sapphire Rose is available for skippered charter from the Beetle and Wedge during the summer months. Or for the experienced helmsperson there is the possibility of short outings on a self drive basis bookable directly through the website of our sister company www.pureboating.com.
If you are getting married in Wallingford, Benson or Streatley, possibly at the Swan at Streatley then please ask about our wedding transfer service.
