Hold your London boat party with us and you’ll have access to the best Thames party boats and the best customer service on the Thames. Party Boat Hire means getting the right boat for you and the right entertainment..whatever your event, whatever your party is for! We have various charter boats and yachts perfect for corporate groups, and also for Birthday boat party cruises.  For something particularly special we recommend Thames Sailing Barge Will. Big groups considering an event on a London party boat will find that our biggest boat, Dutch Master, offers everything they could want: 3 decks, inside and out areas, 2 bars, and a kicking sound system. She’s able to take up to 375 party goers.

Whether you are a company looking to entertain, a promoter looking for the best venue for their ticketed night, or just someone with something to celebrate, our boats will fit the bill for your event.  We offer a lot of options and some of our most popular can be found here.

Turn your Thames cruise into something spectacular

If you want your river cruise to be extra special, talk to us about hiring one of our boats and organising a once-in-a-lifetime London experience which will truly surprise and delight your guests. We can open Tower Bridge just for you! Thames Sailing  Barge Will is a smaller capacity boat (50) but ‘High and Mighty’ in other ways. She needs Tower Bridge to open up to let her through. We can do that for you. It is something once experienced, never forgotten.

You can do it all on a boat for hire

We showcase some of our very most popular events here, but there is so much more you can do. Sometimes the best thing you can do is contact us for a chat if you have an idea or an event outcome you’d like to discuss. In shore though, there aren’t that many things you can’t do on a boat in London! Product launches, filming for Movies and TV, publicity stunts, and almost every entertainment under then sun, we’ve had them all.

A word to Event Organisers – boats are simply brilliant venues

Whilst there is considerable skill, experience and knowledge required in operating a fleet of charter boats and delivering great events on board them in London on a very busy river, as far as you need to know as a customer – boats are just great venues. As such, you can tell us the event outcomes you need, the challenges for your party, and we’ll come up with solutions and ways to make it work. We can advise on the best piers to use, timings and event ideas that will work best for your group size, and everything in between. The message is: let us do the hard work. If you have an event to put on, challenge us with making it deliver over and above your expectations.
