Complementing the rest of our fleet this Christmas, ‘SB Will‘ offers perhaps the most ‘different’ experience for your guests this Christmas. And by different, we mean wonderful. Built in 1925, Will is a Thames Sailing Barge (here’s her Wikipedia page); one hundred years ago these vessels were a common sight on the Thames, their holds filled with trading goods. Today, Will’s comfortable interior has been converted into a warm and inviting saloon.

With a log burning stove for added festive warmth and atmosphere, plus oak-panelled walls, brass fittings, and gentle lighting, Will is a lovely place to have a Christmas party. Going outside there is a large open deck where you can absorb the twinkling lights of London and appreciate the traditional workings of this fine ship. It is certainly the place to be when Tower Bridge stops sounds its alarm, halts the traffic, and raises its world-famous bascules to let you through! That’s right, with 30 metre high masts, you and your guests will enjoy the unforgettable experience of Tower Bridge lifting just for you.
For a traditional Christmas event, you can select a delicious seated dinner for up to 40. For less formal catering – bowl food, canapes, buffets – she can welcome up to 50 guests. For a festive 2017, she will be decorated with tasteful and traditional decorations, think holly and candles, silver and gold. And everyone of course gets a cracker! Remember, for groups bigger than 50 we also have a three more vessels in our fleet, all of whom can take larger groups for Christmas party events.
You will be greeted by the warm spice aroma of good mulled wine when you arrive, and when you leave Sailing barge Will’s decks this Christmas and step ashore again, you will take away with you some very special memories, and more than likely some pictures you’ll be itching to show your friends to make them green with envy.
