Charter a Boat this Christmas for an extra special event

London Boat Parties during the festive season are hugely popular for good reason. Christmas boat parties in London are an especially magical way to celebrate. As Christmas activities all over the capital are in full swing, the Thames joins in, but in fact it’s better. It’s our busiest time of year and the river is buzzing with atmosphere just as much as Oxford Street or Covent Garden – but it’s less hectic! Glittering lights, London reflected on the mirror of the Thames, and a privileged feeling of gliding serenely through a special city at a special time of year, in the very best place.

Christmas office party boat cruises are extremely popular; this could be a full Christmas dinner around the table with all the trimmings but for groups between 40 and 160 we have lots of other menu options on William B: Canapés, finger buffets, delicious hot fork buffets and Street Food! Big office Christmas parties need look no further than the impressive Dutch Master with its 3 decks, dance floors and our ‘Superstar’ DJs. Or Sailing Barge Will for a bit of old fashioned charm and romance.

The ‘William B’

Our flagship vessel has a lovely long saloon serviced by a full bar with room for dining, dancing, entertainment like live bands or DJs, or casino tables. Up above she has a wide open roof garden which this year will be decorated with festive treats and cosy touches to tempt you upstairs. She can take up to 140 guests.

SB ‘Will’ – for a traditional extra-special Christmas boat party

Sailing Barge ‘Will’ is something special. A rare find on the Thames, she is a traditional sailing freight vessel now transformed and equipped to give up to 50 guests genuine experience that will stick in the memory. How about a real log fire to add a special glow to your Christmas lunch or dinner, shimmering with reflection off the polished brass and varnished oak panels? But for most guests who come aboard her historic decks, it is the moment at the start and end of your Thames cruise that has the biggest ‘wow factor’ – Tower Bridge opening up just for you. This iconic landmark sounds its sirens, stops the traffic and opens its famous bascules to salute you and your group as you glide handsomely through. Magical!

The ‘Dutch Master’

Up to 375 guests can enjoy its two decks, large bars, two open viewing decks, and incredible sound system with the best party DJs. This is a true party boat but delivering genuine quality at a corporate level. Large Christmas boat parties need look no further! Find out more about the Dutch Master here, or just get in touch to enquire about Dutch Master Christmas packages.


Prices for Private Hire Christmas Boat Party cruises

There’s a couple of example packages detailed on the left, and our full Christmas package charter price list can be found here . To get the best price go for a date that is ‘off-peak’. So if you are after a deal that simply means avoiding the 5th-7th and 12th to 13th of December which still leaves you lots of choice for the very best prices.
