The Prince Regent and Lapwing are Edwardian style boats available for charter all year round. For summer cruising we have large open foredecks, perfect for wedding receptions and birthday parties. These are ideal venues for corporate entertainment, business meetings, presentations or team building events.

You can charter either boat from any time up to midnight, for formal dining, corporate entertainment, receptions and buffets, for between 12 and 80 guests. We provide excellent catering, a full bar and extensive wine list. To suit your occasion we can arrange for great entertainment – Jazz Bands, Discos, Casinos, and Magicians etc.
