Exclusive Private Charter at Henley Regatta. Entertain From the Water.

Established in 1839 and now a firm fixture in the summer sporting calendar, Henley Regatta is a unique opportunity to socialise, celebrate and entertain on the river whilst watching some of the highest standard rowing in the world.

As English as you can get, the town of Henley is the perfect host for this international event. Champagne flows, corks pop and boaters and blazers are the order of the day.

As you might expect, Henley Regatta & Henley Festival are busy and well-attended events, so why not enjoy it from your own private, floating venue? Host your own party, treat your family and friends or hold an exclusive, corporate event onboard one of our beautifully restored classic boats.

During the regatta, our boats follow the rowing up and down the course, providing you with a front row seat with full bar and waiting staff so you don’t have to miss a moment of the action. Following the regatta, Henley Festival promises a unique experience and our boats provide the perfect venue to host a pre-entertainment drinks or dining party as well as viewing platform for the event’s famous fireworks.
