Lush garden decks for Al Fresco summer cruises up to 375 guests

For the second year running our premiere large party boat Dutch Master has had some further improvements making it even more versatile as an all-round London venue. Now even better for corporate groups, we’ve added new lawn decks on our expansive outside spaces.

Our two ‘garden decks’ are on the first and top floors of ‘The Dutch’ and more than ever before give lucky guests a great vantage point for their London cruise. And what a place to sit back and watch Tower Bridge open just for you! Our ‘grass’ is so lush and real we’ve had guests sometimes happy to sit right down on it picnic style, and a kicked off flip-flop is not an uncommon sight. However…

New garden furniture on board

To go with our occasional tables and chairs and the odd deck chair for serious loungers, our 2020 summer season sees the arrival of new garden furniture for this wonderful outside space. Like the pictures? Why not come along and meet us and see the boat in the flesh? Our new special pallet-style garden chairs and tables really set off the expansive green decks. With a touch of soft lighting to set-off our floating roof-gardens, the Dutch’s outside spaces will be popular well into evening as guests marvel at dusk descending on London’s river-scape.

Superb value catered packages

With tasty Street Food menus, or crowd-pleasing BBQs, or perhaps just a ‘dressed bar’ with some good salty snacks to munch on, we have created some super value packages for large groups looking to hit the river in style in 2020. Add to these loads of brilliant entertainment options: the best Resident DJs, Casino Tables, Live bands, or keep it simple and plug in a playlist. Have you got a set budget and a thirsty crowd? Our welcome drinks and all inclusive drinks-packages will take care of that. Check out the packages on the left and enquire nor for your group. Our midweek event prices are the best, Monday through to Friday daytime we can give your group a wonderful London experience and be kind to your budget too.

Sounds good, everywhere!

With what we are confident is the very best Sound System on the Thames, you can be sure that the soundtrack to your will chill you out, or pump you up – whatever you need. The new twin roof garden decks don’t get left out either. Quality speakers inside and out ensure you can enjoy the music whether relaxing on a deckchair, or hopping around on the dance floor in the main downstairs room.

Every room with a view

Unlike some of the large boats on the Thames, with the Dutch Master, not only do you get lush green roof garden decks from which to enjoy the sights of London, every single space on the boat enjoys panoramic windows.

Do you want to open Tower Bridge?

At certain high states of (high) tide, because of the Dutch Master’s grand stature and three levels, the magnificent and iconic Tower Bridge will open for her to let her pass. Travelling from and to Tower Pier, having this take place either at the beginning or end of your River Thames Cruise is a very special moment – an event in itself! Be sure to ask us about the tides when you enquire about your roof garden cruise! Or just ask us to find a date that will make this happen for you.
