We designed and built “The Prince Regent” especially for entertaining in Edwardian style and she was launched in 1990. Her lines are reminiscent of the steam powered Inspection Launches used for the Directors of the private canal companies, circa 1910. Her interior is richly finished with mahogany and ash paneling and oak flooring. An original Edwardian bar leads to a large saloon and spacious foredeck. Full central heating provides comfortable use at all times of year.

Our recommendations are:

Formal dining 12 – 40 guests

Receptions and buffets 12 – 80 guests

The Prince Regent
from £220 per hour (zero VAT)

Built as a working boat in 1913 for transporting goods, “Lapwing” is one of a unique small band of vintage boats still operating on the English Inland Waterways. She still has her original livery and boatman’s decorated cans on the engine room roof. In 1999 we undertook a major refurbishment and she now has a mahogany paneled saloon, well stocked bar, central heating and a large open foredeck. She is available all year round and is ideal for smaller receptions, parties and exclusive dining.

Our recommendations are:

Formal dining up to 12 guests

Receptions and buffets up to 12 guests

from £160 per hour (zero VAT)
